I always make my Grans triffle and it just isn't Christmas with out it. Gran used a nice glass bowl lined with jam rolls soaked them in cream sherry (mum uses sweet sherry) top with custard and then sprinkled with coconut and put little dobs of 'forked' jelly. She never used tinned fruit as I know most truffles are made with. I love it and the long the sherry soaks te bettter

My mum used to make Trifle, which im sure is one of the reasons my husband married me - He loves my mums trifle, anyway, she moved to the UK, so I had to recreate the trifle...
Jam sponge roll Sliced and spread around the bottom and edges of a large bowl
Drown it in alcohol - Mum used to use Sherry, I prefer either Peach Schnapps or Cointreau
Drain a tin of "fruit salad" dont throw the syrup/juice out
Spread the fruit over the (now very drunk) jam roll
Make Jelly as per packet instructions, but instead of adding cold water, add the reserved Fruit Juice/Syrup
Pour the slightly cooled Jelly over the fruit
Put it in the fridge to set
Make Custard, allow to cool slightly
Pour over set Jelly
Put it back in the fridge
Whip Cream
Spread cream over set custard
Top with sliced strawberries and crushed chocolate flake.
Watch it disappear.

I have also made a chocolate trifle
Make a Chocolate Swiss Roll
Use this as the base
Drown that in Cherry Liqueur
add fruit
Jelly
Chocolate Custard
Chocolate cream
Very Sweet but YUMMMMMMMMM

I love Christmas, Means I get to make all of the yummy sweet treats.

I like the sound of your trifles Dane, a chocolate cherry trifle sounds delicious and something different.

I love trifle too. My favourite is chocolate cake, soaked  in liqueur ( or fruit juice for the kids) , layered with raspberries, then berry jelly that is partly set, then custard made with eggs and vanilla, then cream and grated chocolate.

One day when Mum was alive DH got breathalysed on the way home from Christmas Day at their place. ( When they lived in the city). He knew he hadn't had much to drink but told the policeman checking him that his MIL's trifle was to blame for whatever he blew.
Trifle brings many different memories as GHM said.

I'd add vanilla or even brandy but then that may not go down well with any children present.

I always have vanilla custard but lots of sherry in it too.
