Easy Peasy Coffee Trifle

This trifle is so easy to make and the taste is unbelievable given the small list of ingredients needed to make it. And this can be made low calorie by using low fat pound cake, low sugar syrup and and a sugar substitute like Stevia. If you love coffee you will love this dessert and if you are not a coffee lover, you will still love this treat!


1 pound cake cut into 1 - 2 inch cubes
1 cup strong coffee (I like to use a flavored coffee)
8 oz of Neufchatel cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. chocolate syrup
1/2 c. sugar
8 oz. tub of Cool Whip minus 2 T.
3 T toasted almonds
sprinkle of powdered cocoa optional


Blend the softened cream cheese with the syrup and sugar using a hand mixer. Then gently fold in the Cool Whip by hand. Remember to keep 2 full tablespoons of Cool Whip to the side to use for topping. Place half of the cake in the bottom of a trifle dish or large bowl. Drizzle 1/2 of the coffee over top of the cake. Then add half of the Cool Whip mixture and then repeat the layer one more time. Add the dollop of whipped topping to the top and sprinkle a dusting of the cocoa powder and top with the toasted almonds. Refrigerate before serving and enjoy because this is a real crowd pleaser!

Simply Delicious!!!
