Thrift finds, mini, and cheesecake are a few of my favorite things. Put them together…and you have yourself a very satisfying dessert! I picked these cute (everything’s cuter on a smaller scale, am I right?) little trifle dishes up at the thrift store for just fifty cents a piece a few months ago and they have now made their debut – filled with layers of raspberry cheesecake!
And to convey my undying love for the Mr., I very carefully used a cookie cutter to stencil a heart to the top of his. Afterwards I ran a knife around the edge to clean it up. Worked pretty slick!
While these trifles may take a little finesse and time, they are so well worth it! Give ‘em a try!
