Key-Lime Mini Trifles

Yum
 I love an easy dessert.  If you have been to my blog before, you know one of my favorite ingredients for my quick and fun desserts is COOL WHIP Whipped Topping.  I make sure to always have a tub (or two) of  COOL WHIP in my freezer so I can whip up a quick dessert or simply have something to top off fresh fruit. As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program I was given the opportunity to make a dessert to showcase COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and since I am truly a big fan I was ecstatic. I added a little more COOL WHIP to make the filling more like a mousse and made these fun mini trifles.  I was able to make this dessert in a few minute thanks to the help of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and some of my other favorite Kraft products.



Ingredients:
2 (8oz) Tubs of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
1 (8oz) package of Kraft Cream Cheese
1 box of Nilla wafer cookies
1/2 cup of fresh lime or key lime juice
1-2 tsp of lime zest
melted butter as needed
1 (14oz) can of condense milk



Directions:
Use an electric mixer to blend together the cream cheese, can of condense milk, zest and juice of lime until smooth. Next gently fold in 1 tub of COOL WHIP
Note: allow cream cheese to be at room temperature before mixing.
Crush Nilla wafer cookies and mix with melted butter to form a slightly wet sand like consistency. Sprinkle some crushed cookies at the bottom of the trifle dish.  Then layer with key-lime filling. Repeat.  Finish off with a dollop of COOL WHIP.  Chill for 2-4 hours and serve. Enjoy.


Note: to achieve an easy way of getting filling into trifle glasses without making a mess, place filling in a piping bag (or plastic storage bag) and pipe it into the glass.  Pipe the COOL WHIP in a piping bag or dollop it.


 What you add makes it. #coolwhipmoms


Fresh Strawberries and COOL WHIP Whipped Topping


As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received coupons for free COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and a stipend. Sponsored posts are purely editorial content that we are pleased to have presented by a participating sponsor. Advertisers do not produce the content.

Special Note: The recipe originally called for Kiwis.  I found out that Kiwis have an enzyme in them that makes dairy taste bitter after a day.  Although we ate the original recipe in a few hours and it tasted great without any bitter taste, I wanted to adjust the recipe to leave out the kiwis completely to avoid anyone getting a bitter dessert.   It's important that everyone enjoy the desserts and recipes I post.  Just to let you know kiwis, fresh pineapple and papaya all have an enzyme that does not go well with dairy products.  I made the recipe again with only the limes and COOL WHIP/Kraft products and it was simply delicious.

  11. YUM! I would kill for one of these trifles right now...even though it's still only breakfast time :) I love the addition of kiwis, a nice little change-up from the usual key lime pie. And the trifles is a genius idea, perfect for those of us who don't like to share our desserts :)

  27. I am confused - the condensed milk is not in the ingredient picture and I am unsure if it is supposed to to sweetened condensed milk or just regular. Could you tell me which one you use? These look delicious!!
