Can you ever get enough of your favorite sweet treats!?
I can’t. I Like the combination of (dark) chocolate and strawberries just too much :-).
So in the chocolate cake for this trifle, there is cocoa powder and chopped dark chocolate for the full cocoa chocolatey flavor. To that, the fresh and fruity, and sweet strawberry layer adds perfectly. Slightly sweetened and a dash of lemon juice. And on top, there’s a refreshing yogurt layer.
To additionally top that off sprinkle some chopped pine nuts, chocolate flakes, finely chopped chocolate, or some hazelnut brittle over the yogurt layer. All that goes incredibly well with the strawberries and the chocolate cake.
The trifle is fresh and fruity. Has the perfect sweetness and is heavenly creamy. And you can easily make it at home.
