3 Egg yolks

1/4 cup Orange Juice

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

1/2 cup Sugar

 1/2 cup Flour

2 1/2 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

3 Egg Whites

1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar 1/4 cups Sugar 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream 1/2 cup Confectioner’s Sugar 1 teaspoon Almond Extract 1 Caramel Liberte Mediterranee Yogurt Chocolate you can chop or shave Caramel Bits

6 Shot Glasses

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Beat your egg yolks on high for 5 minutes.

They should be thick and look like lemon color.

Add orange juice and vanilla. Mix on low to combine.

Gradually beat in your sugar on low speed.

Do this by putting your mixer on low speed, and

pouring sugar in a little at a time.

Once the sugar is all in, increase the sugar to medium

speed. Beat for about 5 minutes, until the mix thickens 

a little more and doubles in volume.

While it is mixing, in a separate bowl  mix together

 the flour and cocoa powder.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the flour over your egg mix, 

and fold in. Repeat this until all of your flour and 

eggs are mixed together. Set aside.
 Use a clean mixing bowl and clean beaters and beat your egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed until soft peaks form. Soft peaks are when the tips curl. Gradually add the 1/4 cup of sugar, mixing on high until stiff peaks form. (Peaks stand straight up) Gently fold the egg white mixture into the 

egg yolk mixture, a little at a time.

Pour into a lightly greased 9×9 pan.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Let Cool.

Make your whipped cream by mixing your 

heavy whipping cream on high for 2-3 minutes.

Add your sugar. Mix on medium until combined,

 add almond. Turn speed to high and beat until 

medium peaks appear. They are medium when it can hold it’s shape, but the tips curl over. Start building your trifle by placing a piece of
cake at the bottom. Top with yogurt. Then another piece of cake, more yogurt, more cake. Pipe your whipped cream on the top piece of cake. Dust with some grated chocolate and a couple caramel bits. A couple other ways to present this: Drizzle chocolate over the top and down the sides. Use wine glasses or small bowls for the same great effect. These Chocolate and Caramel Mini Triffles make great treats for parties and get togethers. To make it easier on yourself, make these the day ahead up to putting the whipped cream on. Refrigerate, covered, over night and before serving top with whipped cream and garnish. You will have lots of cake left over, but if you are like me, you can always find something to do with it. #YogurtPerfection
