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.
