Serves 6
Preparation time 20 minutes (plus refrigeration time - approx 2 hours)

Choc Cherry Trifles
1 x 85g pkt cherry flavoured jelly crystals
2 teaspoons cornflour
1 x 425g can stoneless black cherries in syrup
1 x 250g pkt chocolate rollettes (6 mini Swiss rolls)
port, for sprinkling
500g Dairy Farmers Thick Custard
300ml Pura Thickened Cream
dark chocolate shavings or grated chocolate, for garnish
fresh cherries, for garnish (optional)

Combine jelly crystals with 250ml boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add 200ml cold water and pour evenly into 6 serving glasses or dessert dishes and refrigerate until set (2 hours). Mix cornflour to a paste with a little cherry syrup and combine in a saucepan with remaining cherries and syrup. Bring to the boil, stirring occasionally until thickened and allow to cool. Top jellies with custard. Slice rollettes and place on top of custard. Sprinkle with port and top with cooled cherries. Refrigerate until required. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Just prior to serving, top with dollops of cream, chocolate shavings and garnish with fresh cherries.

Note: If fresh cherries are unavailable, reserve 6 of the canned cherries for garnish instead.

1 x 85g pkt strawberry flavoured jelly crystals
1 punnet strawberries, washed
1 x 165g pkt jam rollettes (6 mini Swiss rolls)

Combine jelly crystals with 250ml boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add 300ml cold water and pour evenly into 6 serving glasses or dessert dishes.
