Mixed Berry Cake Trifle with Chocolate Covered Strawberries For Two
I agonized for a long time about this one about whether or not to post it… because of the pictures. Ugh. Apparently “being real” is all the rage in blogging these days (It used to be all about glorifying this impossible ideal of a social-media-ready life, but now – more and more – I’m seeing bloggers glorifying the rejection of the glorified social-media-ready life… Yeah, my head’s exploding too.) so I’ll bite, for like a second, and admit that I almost held this one back because my perfectionism almost got the best of me.
I made the chocolate covered strawberries the night before I assembled and photographed these, and in my hurry and exhaustion, forgot to cover them so they shriveled a little bit. And I’m such a lunatic that that was nearly a dealbreaker even though these are basically the perfect last-minute Valentine’s Day dessert and it would have been, frankly, idiotic and cruel of me not to share them because the strawberries (and, let’s face it, the white balance) weren’t visually perfect.
[let me interject here to say that I am not fishing for complements on my photography…]
What can I say? My brain is a little off-kilter these days. Sleep deprivation does funny things. But that’s all I’ll say about that because I promised myself I wouldn’t turn into one of those bloggers who complains about how grueling their lives are when they get to stay home baking and taking pictures of amazing food all day or one of those moms who just whines about how tired I am. You don’t care. And I don’t really want to dwell on it. Especially not during a week that is supposed to be all heart eye emojis and giddiness – however Hallmark-induced – when we should be talking about the things we love.
So here’s what I love about these trifles:
- Trifle is, as far as I can tell, some kind of Latin or Ancient Aramaic (or neither, more likely) word that translates into “a mess of ingredients that, when layered together in a glass receptacle, turns out really attractive and delectable”. Yes, I’m almost certain that is the exact translation.
- Because it’s supposed to be kind of a beautiful mess, you don’t have to have any of the special skills or decorating prowess that many Valentine’s Day baked goods call for. I’m looking at you, sugar cookies.
- They’re super adaptable to your, or your loved one’s, taste(s). Like, I wouldn’t blame you if you used chocolate cake instead of vanilla….
- They take no time at all, so if you sorta kinda totally forgot Valentine’s Day was on the horizon, make these and no one will be the wiser. It’s like you planned it all along! (Hint: If you are super last minute, you can use Simple Mills cake mix in place of homemade cake to save even more time).
So, dessert is officially taken care of. The card, though? That’s all you!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Is there anything better than chocolate-covered strawberries? We think not. They're at once indulgent and classy, romantic and a little cheesy.
How do you make chocolate-covered strawberries?
The process is simple: You rinse and pat dry strawberries, then melt your chocolate. You can melt chocolate the fancy way in a double boiler (which really only sounds fancy&mdashit's super simple), or you can just melt it in the microwave in a heat-proof bowl.
What kind of chocolate is good for chocolate-covered strawberries?
We recommend using standard semisweet chocolate chips, but you can use dark chocolate, too.
Should I refrigerate chocolate-covered strawberries?
You want to refrigerate the strawberries until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes, but then remove&mdashespecially before serving. We like the strawberries to be closer to room temperature for serving (no one ever likes to bite into an ice-cold strawberry!)
Do I need to use coconut oil in the chocolate?
We like to combine coconut oil and melted chocolate so that the chocolate hardens faster and a little thicker. The coconut oil makes the chocolate act like a chocolate shell. It's not essential&mdashand doesn't add much flavor at all&mdashbut we recommend it.
