Instant Chocolate Trifle

Instant Chocolate Trifle

            Trifle is a dessert dish made from thick custard, fruit, sponge cake, fruit juice or jelly, and whipped cream. These ingredients are usually arranged in layers which is one of the easiest dessert also. The recipe below is adapted from food.com and I have alter to my taste by changing the chocolate mousse to chocolate whip cream filling.  Which doesn't show off any different from regular one.
