So easy, but really delicious - everyone loved it!

Wish I could have given this 10 out of 5! Easy and delicious, I did both child and adult versions. Definitely add more baileys to the cream, but just taste until it's right for you. I used Thorntons mini chocolate fudge brownie pieces from tescos and broke them up a bit more. Heavenly dessert but I won't be on the weighing scales until I've done another 3 Zumba classes!

Easy to make and can be prepared well in advance. My guests couldn't have alot of chocolate so I used sponge fingers instead. I didn't think the Baileys came through enough, so will add more next time round ;-)

This was very easy and went down a treat with our guests. I prepared it 3 hrs in advance and it was fine. No mess with serving up.
I used chocolate store bought muffins as the base.
I think it could with another tbs of Baileys in the cream.

Agreed with most people easy to prep and make, used choc chip muffins instead of brownies, massive calories but very nice.....

Made this for an anniversary dinner party and it went down a treat! The great thing about it is that you can prepare it ahead. I didn't expect it to taste as good as it did. I used chocolate chip muffins instead of brownies and added a bit more baileys to the double cream. And for kids I just added more of the toffee sauce instead of the baileys!! Definately a must have at a dinner party!!

Absolutely delicious!!
I added slightly more Baileys to the cream as I felt it was too subtle initially but the best advice is add and taste until it's perfect. My dinner party guests thought this was wonderful. I served it with the baked mushrooms with ricotta and pesto for starter and the salmon en croute for main. All recipes from here and a huge success.

I added some tinned cherries to give it a "Black Forest" slant - worked really well.

Very easy to make and but looked good. Very rich and heavy especially after a meal.

very nice. made using brownie and custard recipes from here, left the toffee sauce out and also made it more like a traditional trifle with double cream and baileys whipped and piped on top.

SuzieK - just under the title it says to just add more toffee sauce for the children and leave out the baileys :)

Looks like a tasty recipe and very easy to prepare!

Think the kids would also love this, what can I replace the baileys with or shall I just leave it out?

Great! I prepared and used muffins instead of brownies.

Beautiful, very tasty, very quick. Only change would be to cut down the portion sizes a little as they are very rich.

Mine was too runny, any suggestions?

The thickness depends on the custard that you buy as they do tend to vary. Generally we have found the fresh top of the range custards in most supermarkets tend to be pouring custards, and it is better to use a thicker mid-range one for this recipe.
