If you follow me on Instagram (@meandmypinkmixer) you know that from time to time I
love to surprise people with sweet treats. Friends, neighbors, co-workers, the mail man,
clerks at my favorite convenience store, strangers or anyone really. I love the opportunity
to brighten someones day and sweet treats usually do the trick. Who doesn't love a cupcake,
cookie, cheesecake or pie! I like to call it my "random acts of sweetness".
Recently while shopping at Food Lion, I purchased a couple of Sara Lee Original Cream
Classic Cheesecakes. I had an idea.
Although Sara Lee Cheesecakes are perfectly delicious on their own, I decided that one
of the cheesecakes would be perfect for my next round of random acts of sweetness.
Cheesecake trifles in a jar!
Cheesecake trifles in a jar are super easy to make. All you need is one Sara Lee Original
Cream Classic Cheesecake, whipped topping, fresh fruit, cookies and pint size jars.
The combinations are endless! Next time I think I'll even add chopped candy bars and
fudge sauce - yum! Cheesecake trifles in a jar are perfect for picnics since they travel well,
but they are also great for gifting! I decided to up the cuteness factor by cutting circles
from fabric to decorate the jars. I also made some cute little tags and added a touch of gold
paint to the wooden spoons.
Now for the fun part! Random acts of sweetness!
One for the mailman in our neighborhood :)
It's been freezing here lately, so I wasn't worried that the cheesecake wouldn't stay cold,
but since cheesecake is perishable do not do this in warm temperatures.
I also gifted a cheesecake in a jar to the mailman at my office. He loved it!
Performing random acts of sweetness is so fun!
I also handed them out to some neighbors and friends.
Everyone agreed. Cheesecake trifles in a jar are fun and delicious!
Make cheesecake trifles in a jar and spread sweetness and joy to some special people
in your life. It's as much fun for you as it is for them!
