For the Mocha Whipped Cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream

For the Trifle

  • 12 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnuts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Additional whipped cream to garnish, if desired
  • Additional doughnut to garnish if desired


  1. Make the Mocha Whipped Cream: In a small bowl stir together the vanilla extract and instant espresso powder until it has dissolved. If there are still clumps or granules, microwave for 5 seconds and stir again until smooth. In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla/espresso mixture. Beat on medium speed with a whisk attachment until smooth and completely combined, about 3 minutes. Slowly add the heavy cream, scrape the sides of the bowl, then increase speed to medium-high and whip until stiff peaks form.
  2. Assemble the Trifle: Add one third of the Original Glazed doughnut pieces to the bottom of the trifle bowl, then top with one-third of the mocha whipped cream. Repeat those layers two more times, ending with a layer of mocha whipped cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve (the trifle can be made up to a day in advance of serving). Allow to sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes prior to serving.
