Chocolate Week – Chocolate and Raspberry Trifle

Everyone loves an easy dessert.  One that is quick to make but looks and tastes like you have taken forever to make.  This is a cheat’s chocolate and fresh raspberry trifle with no cooking or baking involved.

2 double chocolate chip muffins

200g of dark chocolate

Punnet of raspberries

Raspberry jam

250g Mascarpone Cheese

400g tinned custard

275ml double cream

These are individual dishes and this recipe made 4.  However, none of us managed to eat more than 1/3 of the trifle.  It is very rich and because of this you really can’t eat much.  Truly delicious and certainly a case of eyes bigger than your belly.

If you fancy giving this recipe a go I’d love to hear what you think of it.
