As many of you know, my Heart is a Brit and it wouldn’t be Trifle without Bird’s Custard.  First a batch mixed with the Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa as the liquid ingredient.

Finally top with whipped cream, cocoa, and more grated chocolate.  Set in the refrigerator to marinate and settle for a couple hours. This can definitely be made in the morning or even the night before.
