Raspberry Cream and Brownie Trifles For Two

Yesterday I was updating my February calendar with all of my appointments and events for the month.  With all three kids in school (my youngest just started a little preschool) I now have three Valentines parties to attend and also valentines to prep.  My oldest son's birthday is in a few weeks and we are celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary at the end of the week.  Needless to say we have a lot going on in February. 
To try to make actual Valentine's Day a little special for my husband and I, we will be curled up in bed indulging in these Raspberry Cream and Brownie Trifles For Two when the kids go to bed!  I've kind of been into individual desserts lately and this is a perfectly romantic recipe!  You could definitely share one, but when it comes to sweets, sharing just isn't in my nature!

Even though this dessert looks absolutely fabulous, don't let it fool you that it's super sweet.  Both the raspberry and chocolate kind of even each other out and make for the most perfect combination of flavors.

You could certainly double the recipe and make a classic trifle size.  It definitely would wow the crowds and having everyone coming back for seconds.
