Our Mini Pumpkin Trifle Dessert are an amazing combination of creamy pumpkin spice and yummy Oreo cookies that’s the perfect no-bake treat for Fall.
Hey, y’all! It’s Jamie from Love Bakes Good Cakes! I’m back this month with an easy and delicious, no-bake Fall treat! I am a huge fan of pumpkin and chocolate, so I created Mini Pumpkin Trifle Desserts – also known as Pumpkin and OREO Black Magic Parfaits to satisfy my seasonal craving. There really is no black magic, just deliciousness with these festive treats! 🙂
Now truly, to be a trifle, it should have some sort of cake element, but we’re using crushed OREO instead. Since we are in full Fall mode, these no bake treats are perfect for Halloween parties, Thanksgiving desserts or for an after dinner delight anytime!
They’re super simple to make ahead and all of the ingredients should be easy to find! I don’t know about you, but I love recipes like that! With all the craziness at my house right now, recipes have to be easy!

I love having individual desserts like this to offer when I’m entertaining. It’s a hassle to cut and serve pie or cake, but guests can just grab their own pumpkin trifle whenever they’re ready.
Because we test all our recipes, we recommend that you make them once just as it is without substitutions or changes. Sometimes variations can go awry. Making this recipe as we have tested it will yield the best results. If you really want to get creative, here are some ideas for variations that might work well. (Please note, we have not tested these variations).
- Use homemade whipped cream instead of the store-bought whipped topping.
