What would be an appropriate pairing with Moscato D'asti?

I've been preparing for an intimate celebration and wanted a light desert wine to pair with dark chocolate rum balls. I'm new to the wine world and am finding it difficult to mix a sparkling wine with dark chocolate. I recently purchased a bottle of Saracco 2009 Moscato D'asti, but am not entirely sure if that is an appropriate pairing. If not, what other desert suggestions would you have to pair with this bottle? Because I haven't prepared the desert, I can easily change it. I've also considered a cheese cake with berries as well.
Lastly, would there be any other wine option to pair with a dark chocolate rum ball that is light and sparkling? I personally would prefer a Port, however I know my boyfriend wouldn't enjoy it.
