Step 2 – Drizzle over Baileys Irish Cream

The Baileys will soak into the chocolate brownie making it deliciously moist and boozy.

Step 3 – Layer with vanilla custard, whipped cream and chocolate custard

Tips For Making Baileys Chocolate Brownie Trifle

  • Use a rich and dense chocolate brownie that crumbles into chunks easily (our 5 minute brownie recipe is perfect!)
  • you can make this recipe as individual serves (like I’ve done in the photos above) or you can make it as 1 whole trifle in a large glass bowl or trifle bowl. 
  • This recipe is best prepared on the day of serving
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until ready to serve.
  • You can substitute the vanilla custard for Baileys custard (which is sold in the supermarket in the lead up to Christmas).
  • You can use as much or as little Baileys as you like!
  • For a kid-friendly version – simply omit the Baileys Irish Cream.
  • Choose thick double custards as they hold the layers better than thin runny custard.
  • You can whip your own cream or use a store-bought pre-whipped cream.
  • This trifle should be kept covered in the fridge and consumed within 2 days.

    Hi Lucy! These look delicious – how far in advance can these be made?? Night before ?
    Thanks, Nicole

      Hi Nicole, absolutely – the night before would be fine!! You can always make the brownie a few days ahead of time and then put it all together the night before or on the day to save time. xx

  2. Diane C. says:

    Can you send me the instructions on how to make the vanilla custard and the chocolate custard?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Diane, I used storebought custard for this recipe (to keep it quick and simple).
