  • Slice Chocolate roll and place in the bottom of a straight sided dish. Soak the chocolate roll overnight in sherry - add to taste there is no set amount of cherry this part is trial and error.
  • Thinly slice mars bars and melt in a saucepan over a low flame with the milk. Don't let it boil. Keep stirring. When melted, pour evenly over the chocolate roll covering all of it and allow to go cold.
  • Make up the custard. It needs to be a thick set. When cold, pour over the base so far.
  • Whip the cream until fairly thick and floppy, but not stiff. Pour this over the custard.
  • Decorate with any confectionary to hand eg sliced up mars bars, minstrels, grated chocolate, smarties etc . Sit back admire and pig out.

    What 1 Other has said

    • This needs Angel Delight instead of thick custard, Use 25% less mils for a thicker set and whip with an electric whisk. OH MY GOOD GOD CHOCOLATE TRIFLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
