Pot o’ Gold Cheesecake Trifles Recipe

These Pot o’ Gold Cheesecake Trifles are an adorably delicious sweet treat to help you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
I totally missed Valentine’s Day this year.  I had a list of fun themed recipes to try and I didn’t try any of them.

I guess there’s always next year, but I vowed that I wouldn’t let that happen for the next big holiday!  That holiday happened to be St. Patrick’s Day.

I scribbled out food doodles, played with recipes, wrote up grocery lists and made it happen!

And…it certainly helped my productivity to have a four-day weekend (in Tucson, we actually get days off of school for the rodeo – crazy, but a very welcome break!).

For this recipe, I decided to combine three of my favorite things: cake, cheesecake, and caramel.

And, oh, let me tell you, these three go together so well!  The soft cake, creamy cheesecake, and buttery caramel “gold” layers came together in culinary harmony.

Whether you eat it layer-by-layer or you mix it all together, this one’s a winner!

I used 8 oz mason jars, but you could use regular glasses, wine glasses…anything you’d like! But I’m totally in a mason jar phase. Everything tastes better in a cute little wide-mouthed vessel.
