I made these trifles in square acrylic boxes with lids made by Simcha Collection. BP Print Group made a 1¾-inch label that was a perfect fit for the top of the box. The chocolate cream cheese nestled between the chocolate cake takes these trifles from delicious to divine!

INGREDIENTS

Yields approximately 18 mini trifles

    or your favorite chocolate cake recipe
CHOCOLATE CREAM-CHEESE LAYER
