DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Squeeze the juice from 2 of the mandarins and sprinkle into the dish. Segment the rest and out them in the dish.
  • 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.
  • Heat the milk in a small saucepan until almost boiling then pour in a steady stream onto the egg yolk mixture, stirring constantly. Return to the clean pan and stir over low heat until the custard has thickened slightly and is smooth.
  • Stir in the mascarpone until melted, then add the melted chocolate, mixing it thoroughly. Spread evenly over the trifle, cool, then chill until set.
  • To finish, spread the fromage frais over the custard, then decorate with chocolate shapes and remaining mandarin slices just before serving.
