How do you know when Chocolate Brownie Trifles are ready?

You’ll need to bake the brownies until they’re risen and cooked all the way through. This should take about 12 minutes. 

The jelly can be made in advance and left in the fridge until it’s completely set.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe. 

How long can you keep Chocolate Brownie Trifle in the fridge?

It’s always best that you eat this recipe within 4 hours of serving it. You can make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for around 3 days, but we’d recommend refrigerating it before you add the swirl of aerosol cream on the top. 

Add the cream right before serving, otherwise you might find that it loses its shape and doesn’t look quite as pretty! 

Can I freeze Chocolate Brownie Trifle?

Recipe notes

Tip: It's best to use a wooden spoon to mix the brownies to avoid over-mixing with an electric whisk.
