hot fudge, heated briefly to make it easy to stir- but not hot
PREPARE THE CHEESECAKE WHIPPED CREAM:
In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cream cheese and sugar. Add the heavy whipping cream and mix until thick and creamy- about 1 minute.
ASSEMBLE THE TRIFLES:
You can make 4 good sized individual trifles or 8 smaller trifles (I recommend short plastic cups if you're making them for a party= easy clean-up!) Layer the trifles in this order: cake, M&M's, cheesecake whipped cream, hot fudge... then continue the same layering until you get to the top- ending with whipped cream and M&M'S.
*For the pound cake: use store-bought, frozen or homemade.
*Make-ahead tip: You can make these several hours ahead- just keep them refrigerated. Add the top layer of M&M's just before serving.
