I first shared these Mini Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Trifles on Real Housemoms where I am a contributor. These Mini Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles have layers of cheesecake filling, moist pumpkin cake, brown sugar caramel, and toasted pecans. Heaven!

Best part of fall? PUMPKIN!!! I eat so much pumpkin in the fall, I’m surprised I haven’t turned orange. It happened when I was a baby. True story. Orange food is just better. But really, I’d rather turn orange than give up Pumpkin Bread with Cream Cheese Frosting, pumpkin pancakes, squash, pumpkin soup… these Mini Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles.

The other parts of fall like the cool weather, colorful leaves, scarfs, layers, and cute boots are pretty great too, food is just on the top of my list.

I don’t make trifle very often just because it’s a TON of dessert so mini trifles were born. Awhile ago I created these rich chocolate Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake Trifles that I couldn’t get enough of, but for fall I decided to go with the beloved pumpkin.

All you do is make a simple pumpkin cake. It is so easy, it takes less than 10 minutes to measure, mix, and pop it in the oven. Then you just cut up the cooled cake.

The caramel component to these Mini Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles is divine and also quite easy. If you’ve ever made caramel sauce you’ll know that if you lose focus for one second it can be ruined so this simple caramel goes high on my list. It also has a rich butterscotch flavor since it calls for brown sugar instead of granulated. Buuuut if you want to be lazy you can just buy caramel sauce at the store.

The cream filling is more of a cheesecake filling, similar to cream cheese frosting but a bit lighter since the cream cheese is mixed with whipping cream instead of butter. Basically this is pumpkin cheesecake without all the fuss and worry of baking a cheesecake. You’re welcome!

These cute little trifle dishes are from Ikea but you can order them here on Amazon or easily use cups (clear plastic cups would be cute!) or bowls, or just make one big trifle. Enjoy!
