This is a simple but elegant dessert to take to a party or make for the family. People will think you spent a lot more time making it than you did.

A trifle is always a great dessert, but the cream layer makes this exceptional. Mascarpone is decadent, and adding balsamic takes it to a next level. I love the chocolate, strawberry, and balsamic flavors. It's a great combination! It's impressive to present and easy to make! The Test Kitchen
