This No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Strawberry Trifle is made with layers of fresh strawberries, homemade whipped cream, no bake chocolate cheesecake, and graham cracker crumbs. The perfect Valentine’s Day dessert. Plus a step-by-step video.
In a large bowl with a standing mixer or hand mixer, whisk heavy whipping cream on med-high speed until soft peaks form. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Continue whisking until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese with cocoa powder and powdered sugar, and mix until combined (you can do this with a mixer or by hand with a rubber spatula). Add in vanilla extract.
Fold half of the whipped cream into the chocolate cheesecake, gently mixing until all the whipped cream has been combined. Set aside.
Mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together. Set aside.
Layer your trifle glasses with chocolate cheesecake, graham cracker crumbs, fresh strawberries, and whipped cream. Repeat until glasses are full. Top with a strawberry, if desired.
Chill for at least 2 hours (3-4 hours would be ideal before serving).
This recipe makes 4 trifles (I used 12oz glasses). If you use smaller glasses, this recipe will stretch further.
