1
For the first layer of trifle, place generous-sized chunks of brownie in the bottom of your trifle bowl, making sure that the brownie can be seen through the bowl from the side. Drizzle over your favourite liqueur if you’d like to add a more adult flavour to the trifle

To make the second layer, gently melt the milk chocolate in a bain-marie, mixing until smooth. Slowly warm the cream, salt and sugar in a pan until lukewarm but not hot. Pour the warm cream into the milk chocolate and whisk together. Pour over the brownie chunks and place in the fridge to set

To make the third layer of the trifle, gently melt the white chocolate in a bain-marie. Semi-whip the cream until soft but not too stiff. Quickly fold the melted chocolate into the cream and pour on to the set milk-chocolate layer of the trifle. For the final layer, bring 75ml water and the sugar to a simmer in a pan, then pour on to the dark chocolate, mixing well. Allow the sauce to cool, then pour it over the white chocolate mousse layer. Place the trifle in the fridge for 30 minutes to set

In terms of decoration, less can sometimes be more, and a simple decoration of finely chopped chocolate (perhaps a mix of dark, milk and white) can be enough to bring the dessert alive. Chocolate pearls are a good addition too, though more difficult to find. If you really want to push the boat out, a touch of edible silver or gold leaf will make this humble trifle into a showstopping dessert
