Layers of Love Trifle

Valentine's Day is only 4 short days away!  That means you guys have to get cracking on coming up with a Valentine's Day gift for your sweetie.  Howie and I don't usually buy each other gifts, but rather food or wine-related gifts that we can enjoy together.  Last year he took me out to a fancy dinner at Chinato on East 4th Street and bought me a wine and chocolate pairing from Lilly Handmade Chocolates in Tremont.  If you haven't been to Lilly, you must try it!  The chocolates are handpainted and absolutely gorgeous!  I got Howie some Malley's chocolate, and made him a phenomenal after-dinner dessert: Layers of Love Trifle.  What is it, exactly?  Layers of Bailey's infused chocolate cake, chocolate mocha mousse and crunchy Heath bar bits.  I add the Bailey's and espresso after the cake cooks, so you get the benefit of a dessert, coffee and after dinner cocktail rolled into one.  I could've named it Heaven on Earth instead of Layers of Love Trifle, but had to do the latter because there's nothing NOT to love about this recipe!
