Chocolate and Mixed Berry Trifle

We are still bunkered down in the trenches here with the dessert war not looking like it's going to end any time soon and to be honest it's getting tough. When Dad and Mr B declared 'Dessert War' on each other, I thought it would all die down within a week or two but in the meantime I had a couple of things up my sleeve......

Here we are 6 weeks down the track and Mum and Dad are still bringing out the big guns. Now I know I could take the high road and admit gracious defeat, but I do love any excuse to make a great dessert!!

This week Mum, with the help of her chief jelly slicer / chocolate grater, Dad, whipped up this Chocolate and Mixed Berry Trifle. It was awesome! The berry juice had soaked into the chocolate roll giving it an almost Black Forest feel and I loved the combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries as opposed to the typical fruit salad.

To make this Chocolate and Mixed Berry Trifle you will need:

1 x 250g chocolate sponge roll, sliced 2cm thick
1 x pkt of prepared strawberry jelly
500g mixed strawberries, raspberries and blueberries
2 cups of chocolate custard
300ml thickened cream, whipped
2 x 30g Cadbury Top Deck Bars, grated

Prepare the jelly as per packet directions and allow to set in the fridge overnight. Before assembling your trifle, remove the jelly from the fridge and roughly chop.

To assemble your trifle start by placing the chocolate roll slices over the base and up the sides of a glass serving bowl.

Place the berries in a microwave safe dish and heat for 3-4 mins. You want to get to a point where the berries are still holding their shape but have broken down enough to give you some syrup / juice. Pour the syrup / juice over the sponge roll and top with the fruit and jelly.

Pour over the custard and top with whipped cream. Finish off your trifle by sprinkling with the grated chocolate.

Place the trifle back in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
