Whisk the milk with half the sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 90 seconds or until steaming. Whisk the egg yolks with some of the hot milk mixture; whisk the egg mixture back into the remaining milk mixture. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) power, stirring once halfway through, for 2 minutes or until thickened.


Stir in the chocolate chips until melted and smooth. Cool slightly. Blend the chocolate mixture into the mascarpone cheese until well combined. Beat the whipping cream with the remaining sugar until stiff.


Substitute HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Dark Chocolate Chips for the HERSHEY'S CHIPITS Pure Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.


Pour coffee in a shallow dish and soak half the ladyfingers for 5 seconds or until saturated. Layer evenly into an 8-cup (2 L) trifle bowl. Spread evenly with half the chocolate mixture followed by half the whipped cream. Dust with a thin layer of cocoa. Repeat layers once. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving or up to 8 hours.


This trifle can also be prepared with the crisper, sugar-coated ladyfingers that are often used in classic tiramisu, just reduce the amount of time they soak in the coffee as they crumble more easily.

Use a fine mesh sieve to dust the trifle with HERSHEY'S Cocoa.
