    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 cup mascarpone



    1. 1
      Break up the trifle sponges and place them in a large glass serving dish. Crumble the amaretti cookies over them and then sprinkle with amaretto or sweet sherry.
    2. 2
      Squeeze the juice from 2 of the mandarins and sprinkle into the dish. Segment the rest and out them in the dish.
    3. 3
      Make the custard. Melt chocolate in a heatproof bowl over hot water. In a Seperate bowl mix the cornstarch, sugar and egg yolks to a smooth paste.
