Boozy brownie trifle Q Serves 10-12 Q Prep 25-30 mins, plus chilling Q Cook 5-10 mins
500ml pot ready-made chilled custard
(look for one with real vanilla) 100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces 400g shop-bought chocolate brownies 3 tbsp coffee 100ml Irish cream liqueur, plus 1 tbsp
extra for soaking the brownies 121g bag Maltesers 500ml double cream 25g icing sugar
1 Put the custard and chocolate in a saucepan. Gently heat, stirring, until the chocolate has completely melted into the custard. Cover the surface with cling film to stop the custard forming a skin, then cool.
2 Sit the brownies in a trifle bowl. Mix together the coffee with the 1 tbsp of Irish cream liqueur. Drizzle all over the brownies. Use a rolling pin or saucepan to gently bash the bag of Maltesers a few times to crush them a little, then sprinkle about threequarters over the brownies. Spoon the cooled chocolate custard all over the top, then cover and chill.
3 Combine the cream and 100ml Irish cream liqueur in a bowl. Sift over the icing sugar, then whip until soft peaks form. Cover and chill until you’re ready to serve.
4 To serve, give the cream a quick mix, then spoon on top of the chocolate custard. Scatter over the last few crushed Maltesers to decorate.
