Cheesecake Trifle

If you all read my blog, I bet you would have never guessed I bring the dessert to every function! *since of course that's the only food group my house seems to recognize LOL* Anyways I thought I would TEMPT you all with this LOVELY cheesecake trifle, I made specially for my step-dad on Christmas Day .. because one he is a lover of cheesecake, and two he don't like chocolate! Who doesn't like chocolate? Anyway lets just say I think the bowl was licked thats how CLEAN it was when I left!

Heres the Ingredients and How to's:
4 Cups strawberries *sliced*
4 to 5 tbsps sugar
2 pkgs cream cheese
1 3/4 cup milk
1 lg pkg instant jello pudding vanillia flavored
1 3/4 cup whipped topping
pound cake (I used entemans brand and about 1 and 1/2 loafs)

This amount of ingredients fills the entire bowl pictured above, if you want a smaller amount, adjust accordingly.
And to be ahead of the game you can go ahead and cut your pound cake into squares and set aside.

First thing mix the strawberries with sugar and put in fridge to allow juices in the strawberries to come out.
Then in a lg bowl put the cream cheese (I cut into blocks) and SLOWLY beat in milk, until no longer clumpy, then add jello, and beat about 3 mins, now FOLD in whipped topping.

In bowl layer pond cake, 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture, strawberries (with the juice), and repeat. At the top you can do strawberries like I did, or chocolate drizzled on would look pretty too.
