Ingredients

FOR THE STRAWBERRY TRIFLE

1 can(s)
strawberries
2
kiwi fruit
1
slieve of trifle sponge or make your own
2
8 g packets of strawberry jelly crystals ( which makes 600 ml of water for jelly that's inclueds the juices of the strawberries out of the can)

FOR THE CHOCOLATE CUPS

large bar of really good milk chocolate 300g (if you are making 10 cups)
10
silicone muffin cases.
microwave safe small bowl
1
pastry brush
1
patty tray so handy for the fridge

FOR DECORATION ON TOP

2 c
fresh whipping cream
some chocolate sprinkles

Directions Step-By-Step

1
To make the jelly in a medium glass bowl, just follow the instructions of the brand you use . Don't forget to add to the jelly the juices out of the can of strawberries. adds extra sweetness .
2
Add to the bowl of hot jelly trifle sponge , breaking it up with a spoon through the jelly. Add the fruit and leave to cool before placing in the fridge to set for 2 hours.
3
Start on the chocolate cups . I would actually suggest that if you are doing this dessert that you could prepare it the night before , barr the fresh cream . That's what I did ..
4
In a bowl break off a small amount of chocolate at a time. Melt it in the microwave until smooth.
With the pastry brush dip it into the chocolate and paint with the chocolate the in side of the silicone case evenly . place all the painted cases on to a patty tray , and place in the fridge for 1/2 an hour until the chocolate hardens . Once chocolate has set , you need to paint a second coat of chocolate on to the cups evenly . Then place back into the fridge to set again , what you are looking for is not too thin of a chocolate cup or you don't want the cup to be too thick neither . It needs to be strong enough to work with to remove from the silicone case with out breaking , yet easily for your dessert spoon to break through ..
5
Once the cups are ready , very gently and slowly remove the chocolate cups from the silicone cases ..
6
Just be fore serving , with a electric hand held mixer . Whip up the fresh cream , you want a thick consistency.
on a pate place a chocolate cup and fill with the strawberry trifle, and top it of with a dollop of fresh cream . Just to decorate sprinkle over the cream a small amount of chocolate sprinkles..

This dessert I created for my wonderful mum..x
