NILLA® Pumpkin Mousse Trifle

This unique, pumpkin dish is perfect to bring to your next holiday party! If you're looking to make it a bit more healthful use: Reduced Fat Nilla Wafers, Philly Neufchatel Cheese, Sugar/Fat Free Vanilla JELL-O and Lite COOL WHIP.

42 NILLA Wafers, divided

1 pkg. ( 8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1-3/4 cups cold milk
1 pkg. (4-serving size) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, divided

ARRANGE 32 of the wafers on bottom and up side of 2-1/2-qt. serving bowl; set aside. Beat cream cheese and pumpkin in medium bowl with electric beater on medium speed until well blended. Add vanilla and spice; mix well.

POUR milk into large bowl. Add dry pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 min. or until well blended. Let stand 5 min. Gently stir in 1-1/2 cups of the whipped topping. Add cream cheese mixture; stir until well blended.

SPOON half of the pudding mixture into prepared bowl; top with the remaining wafers. Cover with layers of the remaining pudding mixture and remaining 1/2 cup whipped topping. Sprinkle with the Autumn Spiced Nuts. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator.
