Featured Halloween Treat-LayeredPumpkin Trifle
1 cup of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
4 cups of Cool Whip, regular
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 can of pumpkin puree , or pumpkin pie filling
1 Box of basic Graham crackers
1 cup of walnuts
1 teaspoon of butter
Directions to making your own Perfect Halloween Treat!
1. Begin by tossing the walnuts in a pan on low heat with a teaspoon of butter. Gently toss the walnuts until browned. Set aside.
2. Set the cream cheese on the counter at room temperature so it can soften. Once it is soft, break it apart in a bowl. Whip until the cream cheese is fluffy.
3. Stir in the heavy cream. Continue to stir and then whip so the mixture stays fluffy.
4. Now, you can add the powdered sugar and the pumpkin puree or pie filling. Continue to stir well.
5. Gently sprinkle in the pumpkin pie spice. Mix well.
6. Finish the mixture by adding 2 cups of Cool Whip. Reserve the second cup at this time. 7. Now, create a layer on the bottom, of your pan using the graham crackers. Break them apart to create a thin, even layer. Top them with a very thin layer of Cool Whip.
8. Next, spread the pumpkin and cream mixture over the Cool Whip layer.
9. Top the pumpkin layer with another layer of Cool Whip. Just use the remaining portion. Spread it evenly over the top.
10. Finish the trifle by topping the Cool Whip with the toasted walnuts. Simply sprinkle them on as little or as much as you wish.
Place the pumpkin trifle in the refrigerator for 2 hours. It is important to not skip this step, since it will help firm the dessert up. This will not only make the flavor better, but make the dessert easier to cut and serve. Serve cold with milk and enjoy!
Now, how is that for a perfect Halloween treat? 🙂
