Christmas in our house is not complete without a Trifle on our dessert table and this easy Chocolate Trifle recipe will definitely be making an appearance this year!
Every year I look forward to sitting down with a big bowl of my Mum’s Trifle to finish off my Christmas lunch (and I always make sure that I have saved some room for it!) but this year I think I might just have to make this easy Chocolate Trifle recipe instead.
For a split second, you may not want to dive into this Chocolate Trifle as it just looks too good, however once you’ve tried it, you will be going back for seconds – and even thirds! This recipe makes a BIG trifle (woohoo, leftovers!), and I strongly encourage you to use a deep 3 Litre bowl, so you can show off the layers. If your bowl is shorter/wider that’s ok too, this Trifle will still taste amazing.
While I’ve popped the method below for this Chocolate Trifle recipe, you really can just make it up as you go along, as long as you have a layer of each delicious ingredient you really can’t go wrong! I also suggest that you hold off decorating the Trifle until you are just about to serve it as the Maltesers can begin to soften in the cream – enjoy!

Thermomix Easy Chocolate Trifle Recipe
- Cut the chocolate roll into 1cm pieces.
- Cook the custard using the ‘automatic recipe’ function on your Thermomix. Select ‘6 – 8 serves’ and ‘thick’ consistency. Once cooked, place the custard into the fridge to cool.
- In a clean Thermomix bowl, insert the butterfly attachment and add the cream and condensed milk. Mix for 30 – 90 seconds on speed 3 – watch through the top of the Thermomix lid to ensure you don’t over whip the cream. The time it takes for the cream to whip into soft peaks will vary as they ‘freshness’ of the cream can impact this. Once your cream and condensed milk has formed soft peaks, set aside until needed.
- Arrange 1/3 of the chocolate roll slices over the base of a 3L serving bowl and sprinkle ⅓ of the raspberries and cherries over the top.
- Top with ⅓ of the custard and ⅓ of the cream.
- Repeat in the same order until your serving bowl is filled and a layer of cream is on the top.
- Place your trifle into the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours, or overnight if possible.
- Just prior to serving, decorate the top cream layer with the Maltesers, remaining raspberries and Flake pieces.
