My husband and I had the chance to go to Rome before we had kids, and it’s an amazing place. The food, the wine, the sites…. it’s living! Then we had the chance to revisit Italy with our kids as we spent 5 days in Florence last summer. While there we indulged in tiramisu for dessert, and it was heavenly.

Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert, but I wanted to put a new spin on it. Since chocolate pretty much makes EVERYTHING even better, I decided to go with that. The result is this creamy, crunchy, indulgent dessert that looks wonderful displayed in mini glass cups.  Made with some of the ingredients I got from World Market’s gourmet section, I call it

This tiramisu chocolate trifle recipe is creamy, crunchy, and indulgent. 

Serving dessert in individual sized portions always seems more festive. For instance these black & white parfaits are terrific for parties and showers, as is this dessert parfaits recipe served in baby jars for a shower.
