  • Refrigerator


  • 20 cm chocolate brownie see notes
  • Baileys Irish Cream see notes
  • 900 g vanilla double thick custard
  • 500 ml thickened cream whipped
  • 900 g chocolate double thick custard
  • ¾ cup salted caramel sauce


  • Place 6 large individual serving glasses onto the bench (or 8-10 smaller glasses).
  • Crumble the cooked chocolate brownie into small chunks.
  • Divide ⅓ of the brownie chunks between the serving glasses.
  • Pour over a small amount of Baileys Irish Cream (the brownie will soak up the Baileys).
  • Spoon over half of the vanilla custard, half of the whipped cream and half of the chocolate custard (in layers).
  • Drizzle over ⅓ of the salted caramel sauce.
  • Repeat all of the layers once more (including the Baileys Irish Cream).
  • Finish off with the remaining ⅓ chocolate brownie and the salted caramel sauce.
  • Place into the fridge until serving.



  • 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 one 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).
  • For a kid-friendly version - simply omit the Baileys Irish Cream.
  • Choose thick double custards as they hold the layers better than a thinner 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.
