  • Hmm.

    Chocolate goes quite well with raspberries, and, to a degree, strawberries too. What sort of fruit cocktail / jelly are you using?

    chocolate and orange go together well and oranges are festive as well. I´ve also done chocolate and black cherry trifle, chocolate swiss roll cut up (add a dash or kirsh or cherry brandy), cherry jelly from Lidls, jar of their hulled black cherries, when set add, chocolate instant whip or custard topped with cream or dessert topping, sprinkle finished trifle with chocolate vermecelli, chocolate flake and decorate with halved cherries (but they need to be glacè in case they run into the cream)

    I made a black cherry trifle once and it used chocolate swiss roll with that artificial white cream filling. You put that in the bottom in slices, then a drained tin of black cherries and if you want to use jelly, a black cherry one, then custard as normal (or you can melt some choclate in it to make chocolate custard) and cream on top with crushed chocolate flake. It was really nice.
    Money can't jump out of your purse on its own so ask 'Can I borrow one, make one, grow one, bake one, re-purpose or recycle, acquire it for free?' Yes? Then put that purse away & keep your money because little savings

    I'd say personally, I'd prefer not to use a combo of raspberry jelly, fruit cocktail and choc swiss roll. I've used the choc swiss roll before and if I remember rightly the cream filling sort of hung around in the jelly in greasy blobs too....may or may not be important, but thought I'd mention it!!

    You can use madeira cake, or sponge fingers in trifle if you can get hold of them, but it would only take a few mins to whisk up and bake a 2 egg, no-fat sponge.

    Could I make it today and keep it in the fridge? Would it suffer?
