Christmas Trifles

These trifles are an ideal Christmas dessert. You can easily make them in advance, they look very festive and are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.

I love the combination of brownies and cherries, but feel free to use raspberries instead. And these trifles are perfect if you use homemade brownies, but even with store-bought ones they will taste absolutely delicious. Or use chocolate cake, if you prefer. Not a fan of chocolate? Use crumbled meringues for a pretty variation on a traditional Eton Mess.

  1. Break the brownies into little pieces and divide them over four glasses. Add the cherries.
  2. Whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Carefully mix in the mascarpone.
  3. Divide the cream mixture on top of the cherries and sprinkle over some brownie crumbs, if you like.
