Here is a beautiful dessert with to-die-for layers! This Chocolate Raspberry Red Velvet Trifle has a red velvet cake base with a chocolate raspberry sauce, fresh raspberries and a mascarpone cream!
What is a Trifle?
A classic Trifle is an English dessert that includes layers of cake, custard, and often a fruit sauce or jelly and fresh fruit. This version isn't too far from the classic and incorporates some of our favorite flavors. A trifle is always an impressive dessert, but it really doesn't take much effort to make all of the components for a beautiful presentation.
We like to use THESE clear glass dishes for smaller trifles for two people to share. You can also use much smaller dishes for individual desserts or a large trifle dish for a crowd. If using a large trifle dish you will want to repeat the layers to fill up the whole dish.
For our trifles, we start with a layer of red velvet cake. We like to cut our cake to fit the bowls we used, but tearing the cake into pieces is completely acceptable here as well.
The next layer is the chocolate raspberry sauce. This sauce features fresh raspberries and raspberry liqueur giving it a nice raspberry flavor. along with the perfect amount of chocolate to finish this layer. We then add the fresh raspberries here as the next layer.
Finally we add a layer of the mascarpone cream topped with cocoa powder, more fresh raspberries and garnished with fresh mint leaves and some cake crumbles.
If using a larger trifle dish, you may want to repeat these layers to fill up the entire dish. Since ours were smaller, we opted not to repeat layers.
