An Oatmeal Creme Pie Berry Trifle is great for serving at picnics, barbecues, or parties this summer. Layers of cookies, marshmallow cheesecake, and fresh berries makes an impressive no bake dessert.
Want to know one of my all time favorite treats? I absolutely adore the Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies.
It’s true. I puffy heart love them so much! They can never come home with me at the store because I would eat an entire box all by myself.
In fact, in high school I would do just that. Buy a box and hide it in my room just for me. That metabolism from high school has long since disappeared, so hiding boxes of snack cakes is not something I can do now.
My pants already hate me enough as it is because I taste test everything I make. And by taste test, I really mean eat more than I should.
The funny thing is that I bought a box of Oatmeal Creme Pies a few weeks ago because I just had a funny idea that I would want to make something from them. I wasn’t sure what, so I hid them in the cupboard.
Lucky for me (and my pants), I kind of forgot about them for a while. Until this crazy idea for a berry trifle started to form in my head. I pulled out the box of creme pies…only to find out that someone else had found my secret stash.
Ok, so they really weren’t hidden that hard. It turns out my oldest has the same love for these cookies. I really should make another batch of these Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pies, and see which ones he likes more.
Since I had to go to the store for fresh berries, I picked up 2 more boxes of snack cakes for the cake trifle, and told my son he could have the open box for snacking on as long as he shared with his brother.
Other snack cakes that would be good in this cheesecake trifle:
- Fudge Rounds
- Swiss Cake Rolls
- Chocolate Chip Creme Pies
- Cosmic Brownies
- Cloud Cakes
- Zebra Cakes
The layers of fresh berries, cheesecake, and oatmeal creme pies make an absolutely stunning no bake trifle. The red and blue fruit with the white no bake cheesecake makes this the perfect Fourth of July dessert.
I kept opening my fridge all afternoon just to stare at the bowl of goodness!
Our daughter saw it when she got home and asked if she could take it to her girl’s life group that night. “Yes, yes you may”, said my fat pants!!!
She was so excited to take it to over that night, and I was so excited when she brought the little bit of leftovers home. I couldn’t stop taking bites because it was even better than I imagined!!!
No wonder my pants have issues with my taste testing abilities!
How to make an Oatmeal Creme Pie Berry Trifle:
- Unwrap the snack cakes and cut them into bite-sized pieces.
- Beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Add marshmallow creme and extract and beat until fluffy. Fold in Cool Whip.
- Place half the cookie pieces in the bottom of the trifle bowl. Spread half the cheesecake on top and top with half the fruit. Repeat the layers again.
- Add Cool Whip swirls and whole strawberries to the top of the berry cake trifle. Top the swirls with blueberries.
Can you use whipped cream instead of Cool Whip?
Yes, you can. Beat 2 cups of heavy whipping cream with 1/2 cup powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Use this in place of the Cool Whip in the cheesecake and on top.
Can you make this berry trifle ahead of time?
This dessert is best if made and served within 24 hours. The cut strawberries will start to get juicy and will make the cookies soggy if they sit too long.
Would other fruits be good in this cake trifle?
Feel free to use whatever fresh fruit you like. I think a mixture of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries would be great. Peaches and blueberries would be delicious. Cherries and shredded coconut would also work well together.
