These Red Velvet Oreo Trifles in a jar have layers of moist red velvet cake, chopped Oreos, no bake Oreo cheesecake and chocolate sauce! Chocolatey, easy to make and so tasty!
So we had kind of a crazy Saturday night. We out on the boat during the day, which we hadn’t done in a few weeks.
It started out great – we took our black lab and our friends brought along their dog. It ended up not being too terribly hot, so the dogs actually did pretty well. The lake was pretty busy though so we waited until a little later to start tubing and wake boarding.
The last tuber was the hubs, who decided he wanted me to come out and ride with him, so I did.
Unfortunately, on our first run we hit a pretty big wave and when I came down on the tube, my chest hit first and my back bent, with my legs kind of flying up behind me. I heard a pretty loud crack and immediately let go of the tube.
I totally though I’d just broken my back. It seriously scared me. The hubs had our friends call 911, but I realized I was fine before they sent anyone, so that was good. It took a minute for me to make sure I could still move everything and was fine, but we still went to the ER to get looked at. I was really lucky it wasn’t worse. I really thought it was going to be.
Fortunately, the X-ray looked good. I just have to go to an orthopedist now to make sure the stuff that doesn’t show on an X-ray is all good too.
They gave me a pretty massive shot to the butt, which was a first, for the pain. That thing knocked me out. I was talking all kinds of gibberish, which the hubs found amusing.
Now I’m laid up with some pain killers and muscle relaxers. It made for relaxing Sunday for me to edit these pictures.
These trifles received a big thumbs up from everyone! I only made about half of what the recipe actually makes and I should have made the whole batch! Everyone loved them. Who doesn’t love layers of red velvet, chocolate and Oreos? Total yum in my book.
And everything is way cuter in jars, don’t you think? I just love them. I can’t decide if I like the bigger or smaller ones better.
I ended up making a mixture of both sizes. The recipe below lays out how to make the larger 8 oz ones, but there are notes for how to make the 4 oz ones too. The bigger ones are basically just an extra round of the layers.
I sure wish I had some of these Red Velvet Oreo Trifles left right now while I’m laid up on the couch. They’d be gone in no time!
