Blackcurrant & Liquorice Trifle Method

  1. Heat the milk in a pan until it just begins to bubble. Remove from the heat, add the chocolate pieces and stir a few times as the chocolate melts.
  2. Beat or whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl for 2 – 3 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, mix a teaspoon of cornflour with a few tablespoons of the warm chocolate milk and stir until it’s a smooth paste (no lumps). Add to the egg mixture and mix well.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the warm milk in the pan and whisk over a very low heat until it has thickened slightly. Leave aside to cool.
  5. Make the jelly as per the instructions, and leave to one side.
  6. Pop the chocolate sponge in the bottom of 5 individual or one large dish, and add a layer of the fruits. Pour over some jelly and leave to set.
  7. Once cooled and set, add a generous layer of the chocolate custard. Whip the cream, spoon on top of the trifle and grate the remaining bar, to decorate. Serve and enjoy!
