Seriously Decadent Mini Chocolate Trifle

A very special mini trifle, made with a dark chocolate mascarpone mousse, enriched with rum and hazelnuts.
This recipe was inspired by the layered Italian dessert “Tiramisù”, which has very different ingredients but a similar structure. All the layers in this trifle give a nice variety of textures and flavours which blend nicely in the mouth.
It’s pure pleasure in a glass, made to satisfy the needy taste buds of chocolate lovers.

    1. Hi! How are you?
      This dessert is very chocolatey, quite different from tiramisù, but if you like chocolate is very nice. You probably don’t need to buy anything if you have two small pans (or pots) you can use one on top of the other and boil the water underneath.

    1. Hello Dawn, thank you for visiting my blog!
      I love individual serving desserts! They are easy to make and affordable if you cook for a couple of people. And sometimes I like to prepare a cute little sweet thing, just for me, at the end of the day…🙂
