Trifle Shots

Trifle is a western dessert dish made from thick custard, fruit, sponge cake, fruit juice or jelly, and whipped cream. These ingredients are usually arranged in layers. As usual I was not with the intention of making a whole Trifle yet. This is back when I made some Homemade whipped cream, and trying to put that for good cause. I have the leftover chocolate cake, custard powder handy and the homemade whipped cream. I am short of fruit or jello, and the main ingredients also I have little bit of every thing. So then the Season 52 Indulgence Shots spurred me this inspiration idea to make these cute Trifle shots than the whole trifle.

Trifle Shots
The recipe is very simple and go with your thought and feel free to add some fruit like grapes or oranges slices or any berries. or even top with some mini colored marshmallows or M&M  for your kiddos.  
Lined up Shots...

On that day I have made this as a quick fix dessert for my unexpected guests and they absolutely loved the idea of small portions of this high calorie dessert served as shots!!  and as these are small you can customize for every one. How neat is that!!

Customize your Trifle...

Plain Chocolate Cake ( or pound cake) - 15 pieces
vanilla custard - 1 cup
Chocolate Chip Cookies or Waffers - 5
Whipped Cream - 1/2 cup

Preparatory steps:
Make your custard according to the directions and cool it off. (keep it in the refrigerator until before make the shots)


  1. Arrange one or two piece of chocolate cake at the bottom of your shot or mini glass.
  2. Add one spoon of custard on top.
  3. Then again add  one more piece of chocolate cake.
  4. Now top with one spoon of Whipped Cream and decorate with Chocolate chip cookie bites or wafers.

That's it, Ta Daaaaa! your cute Trifle Shot is ready now, see How simple!. Now if you all excuse me I have to indulge my customized trifle shot. Hmmm, Hmmm Ymmm! Oh Boy! this is Goood, sooooo Gooood !


  • I have used less and light cream to cut some calories, if you are not on such restriction ( lucky you!) Go on, whip that extra cream..
  • If you don't have custard powder, then you can use Jello instant pudding mix also.
  • I have alternated the layers in some trifle shots to add some variety. ( first custard, then cake and custard topped with cream and cookie)
  • if you like it chilled after arranging the shots ( don't add cookies on top), keep them in the refrigerator  for 30 min and then top with cookies and wafers. 

will be back with one more cute recipe...Keep checking
take care
