Ingredients

  • 500ml pot ready-made chilled custard (look for one with real vanilla)
  • 100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 400g shop-bought chocolate brownies
  • 3 tbsp coffee
  • 100ml Irish cream liqueur, plus 1 tbsp extra for soaking the brownies
  • 121g bag Maltesers
  • 500ml double cream
  • 25g icing sugar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the custard and chocolate in a saucepan. Gently heat, stirring, until the chocolate has completely melted into the custard. Cover the surface with cling film to stop the custard forming a skin, then cool.

  • STEP 2

    Sit the brownies in a trifle bowl and mix together the coffee with the 1 tbsp Irish cream liqueur. Drizzle all over the brownies. Use a rolling pin or saucepan to gently bash the bag of Maltesers a few times to crush a little, then sprinkle about three-quarters over the brownies. Spoon the cooled chocolate custard all over the top, then cover and chill.

  • STEP 3

    Make the final layer by combining the cream and 100ml Irish cream liqueur in a bowl. Sift over the icing sugar, then whip until soft peaks form. Cover and chill until you’re ready to serve.

  • STEP 4

    To serve, give the cream a quick mix, then spoon on top of the chocolate custard. Scatter over the last few crushed Maltesers to decorate.
