Easy to make but note if you are a novice like me you need to whip the cream and baileys together otherwise it goes like single cream! Also whilst it can be made ahead of time if you add the toffee sauce too early it will just sink to the bottom of the trip so worthwhile adding just before presentation. Otherwise absolutely delicious!

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.

Do you not need to whip the cream to make it thicker? If you pour it on this will be quite runny?

Thanks for your question. We suggest using the extra-thick double cream in this recipe which isn't a pouring cream but rather one you'll spoon onto the trifles. If you can't get that, you could whip up double cream.

When the recipe says 300g pot. What does pot mean?

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.
