Love. Create. Celebrate. : No-Bake Pumpkin Trifle

No-Bake Pumpkin Trifle

Post-holidays I had some leftover pumpkin pie filling that needed to be used up. 
Since I don't have a regular store of pumpkin recipes, I started searching for ideas. 
When I came across the idea for pumpkin trifle, I knew that it was perfect
Mr. A loves everything to do with trifle. Everything. 

So I found a couple recipes and modified them to make them easier for me :) 
Here's what I came up with:

Crunchy Pecan and Graham Cracker Crumb Layer

1.5 cups of graham cracker crumbs
3 tbsp. of brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup crushed pecans
5 tbsp of butter, melted and slightly cooled


Combine graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cover with butter making sure it is evenly softened/mixed.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Layer

8 oz. of cream cheese, softened
1 can pumpkin pie filling
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla


Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Then add the pumpkin, vanilla, and sugar. Mix until Creamy. 

Whipped Cream Layer


Heavy whipping cream (whipped into whipped cream!)

Once all the layers are made, you simply layer them one at a time into each cup, and top with extra graham cracker crumb at the end.  I did 6 layers total (2 of each). Best if served fresh, but they can be refrigerated and eaten the next day - just watch the whipped cream doesn't settle too much!
That's it! 

This recipe made approx. 12 mini trifles (as seen above) and took approx. 30 minutes to prepare.
