“Delicious trifle. A change from the usual trifle. Absolutely wonderful for a dinner party or any dinner. Serves 6 or 1 if you eat nothing else all day!! Preparation time includes chilling time.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use a shallow glass bowl of about 1.5 litre capacity.
  2. Slice the trifle sponges horizontally through the middle. Use 8 halves to cover the base of the glass bowl.
  3. Sprinkle over 4 tablespoons of baileys and 2 tablespoons of juice from the pears.
  4. Whisk together the cream and mascarpone in a large bowl until lightly whipped (be careful not to over-whisk).
  5. Reserve 6 of the chocolate thins and chop the rest so they are still very chunky - about the size of hazelnuts.
  6. Mix the chopped chocolates in with the cream.
  7. Cut the pear hales into 1cm slices and lay over the soaked sponge mixtures.
  8. Spread with half the cream mixture and repeat the whole process again starting with the sponge.
