Black Forest, Chocolate
Ready made custard
Chocolate Cherry Swiss roll
Jumbo chocolate swiss roll
Cherries in kirsch/Cherries in syrup/Cherry Pie filling
Tub brownie bites
Pour your ready made custard into a pan, and add in the chopped chocolate.
Heat on a low heat and mix together until smooth.
Pour into a bowl and leave to cool fully.
Add your double cream to a bowl, add the icing sugar and whisk to soft peaks.
Slice your chocolate swiss roll into 1-2cm size slices.
Sprinkle over 4-5tbsp of kirsch if using.
Start building your trifle - I put the slices of the swiss roll around the edge of the trifle bowl at the bottom, and a few on the bottom as well.
Pour over half of the chocolate custard and spread.
Add on half of the cherries from the tin/jar, and half of the brownie bites.
Spread on half of the whipped cream, and pour on the one layer of cherry jam.
Repeat this again, finishing with the rest of the whipped cream on top.
Decorate the top with the fresh cherries and some grated chocolate!
Leave it to set for an hour in the fridge so the custard isn't as runny. Enjoy!
This will last for 3 days once made, but is best eaten fresh.
If you can't find cherries soaked in kirsch you can make your own by soaking fresh cherries in kirsch over night before baking, but it is not essential.
You can use tinned cherries in syrup or cherry pie filling instead.
The kirsch is entirely optional.
Quantities for this recipe are complete estimates as it entirely depends on your trifle bowl!
