Boozy Baileys chocolate trifle

If you like Baileys and coffee, this could be your perfect dessert.


  • 1 cup strong coffee
  • 1 shot coffee liqueur
  • 200 grams trifle sponge
  • 1-2 shots Baileys
  • 250ml double cream
  • 60 grams cocoa powder
  • 60 grams caster sugar
  • 200ml water
  • 20 grams butter


  • Mix together the coffee and coffee liqueur.
  • Lay the trifle sponges across the bottom of a trifle dish and pour over the coffee mixture.
  • Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to absorb the liquid and set.
  • To make the chocolate sauce, in a small saucepan combine the cocoa powder, caster sugar and water and bring to a boil. Stir continuously until the mixture begins to thicken and form a sauce, then stir in the butter.
  • Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
  • Whip together the double cream and Baileys, for an extra hit I use two shots.
  • Take the trifle dish from the fridge and pour over the chocolate sauce, allowing it to drip into any spaces around the sponge.
  • Let this sit for around 10 to 15 minutes, before spreading the cream mixture evenly on top.
  • Dust with cocoa powder and return to the fridge for an hour to set.
