Semi-homemade, but completely delicious, this trifle recipe will impress any guest and save you time and effort. Imported from Germany, our chocolate mousse mix is the epitome of decadence, but requires just some milk and the flick of a wrist to develop the smooth and fluffy consistency of the mousse of your dreams.
