I Want To Show You How To Make Some Fabulous Cookies And Cream Trifles.
- Chocolate Custard First
- Semi-Sweet Chocolates
You’ll need to make the chocolate custard first what I have here which I guess I should have these backwards semi-sweet chocolates and this is my my own vanilla pudding mix that.I have shared with you here not too long ago and if, you don’t have a homemade just go ahead and get the cook and serve vanilla pudding mix and it would work out just as well and you need some milk that’s it that’s all you’re going to need for this portion of the recipe now.I’ve got my little saucepan here ready to go and to that I’m just going to add my milk and my vanilla pudding mix.I’m going to add that in and I’m just going to cook this for about three to four minutes or until the mixture comes up to a boil and it thickens really nicely and I will show you what it looks like when it’s exactly at that point perfect you can see that thickened nicely.
I’m going to take my chocolate chips.I’m gonna place them in the bottom of a bowl and then I’m going to pour my hot vanilla pudding mixture over the top and then all you’re going to do is you’re just going to kind of stir this together you can also whisk it of course until the chocolate chips are pretty much melted if,there’s a few chocolate chips in there that.I haven’t melted completely.I actually think that’s kind of nice because it gives you a little bit of texture but for the most part you do want your chocolate chips to be fully melted when it’s there what you can see it’s just about where you want it you can see it gets kind of darker and darker in color and it does thicken as it cools this is actually perfect.
What I’m going to do now is I’m going to cover this with plastic wrap and you want to make sure that the plastic wrap is actually touching the top of your chocolate custard mixture I’m going to pop it into the fridge until it’s completely set and completely cools and I’m gonna warn you but it does thicken quite a bit and actually deepens in color as well when it’s there.I’ll show you what it looks like and then we’ll move on to the next step my pudding mixture is completely cooled you can see it has thickened so much.I’m actually going to transfer this to a slightly larger larger larger bowl but.I also have here are some Oreo cookies you can use any cookie you want does it have to be this one I’m just using it because I like it and I have it on hand and you just want to crush them.
I put them in a resealable like a little zipper bag and just bash it with my rolling pin known as a favorite weapon and till they’re like crumbles so you can do it in a food processor as well and then what I have here is some heavy cream that I have whipped to stiff peaks but you want to make sure there are stiff peaks and not butter because if you take this any further it would literally turn into butter which is not what you want okay now what I want to do is I want to lighten the mixture up chocolate mixture up a little bit so what I’m going to do is I’m gonna take a little bit of my whip cream here about a cup or so and then just fold this into my chocolate mixture what this does is it makes a chocolate mixture a lot lighter not only in color but also texture which is awesome so I’m just going to go ahead and do that does it only take a couple of minutes and what I have here is just a bunch of different cups serving cups they can see they’re kind of missing match because that’s what I have and depending on the size of your serving cups or your trifle dish.
Whatever you put this in you might get four you might get six you might get eight – really all varies in size and I also have some little ziplock back well donut little the big Ziploc bags here in two cups so that they are ready for the assembly line so as you can see it’s really easy and it’s really simple and you can make this the night before if you’re having like a big party and you can use disposable clear cups and then you look like a rock star you can make individual serving for everybody at your party and it takes no time at all so I’m going to continue to mix this up and then when it’s ready we’ll start layering okay so,I’ve done the first layer now I want to show you how I do it because it’s the exact same layering process but just you want to do it twice you start with the chocolate then you do the whipped cream then you crushed-up cookies so.
6I’ll show you you do a small layer of each one because remember this is like super super rich so a little goes a long way and then you take a back of a spoon I just kind of push it down on it so that it kind of spreads it just like that does not matter if the flavors mix up because guess what Oh going the same place then you take your whipped cream you do a shrews I made that up of that and again just smear it around like so and I do it you know I fill my little resealable bags with the mixture simply because I’m a mess.
7I just try to spoon this in it’ll just go everywhere and then the final top is some more cookie crumbles just like that okay you can see that cool cut party.I’m going to finish up the rest of my little parfaits here and that’s pretty much it these are all ready and now the beauty of that chocolate custard like sitting in the fridge for a while means that it already had a chance to set so if,you want to serve these right away you absolutely can or you can make them in advance they do I feel like they set a little bit better as they sit because the heavy cream has a chance to really sit well and almost harden it’s just a little bit if,you give them some time in the fridge like a couple hours or so but you can make them the night before as well for a large crowd but I’m impatient.
8I’ve waited long enough.I am gonna pop these into the fridge because.I’m going to serve them later.I’ll tell you what’s really fabulous about this the chocolate custard mixture mixed with the whipped cream creates all most like a chocolate mousse so really it’s like a chocolate mousse trifle without having to go through the hassle of making traditional closet moves drop the mic walk away because. I’m done mmm mmm and it’s not just wheat it’s perfection mmm that is seriously good like I said it’s not too sweet I didn’t swing the whipped cream the only thing that was sweet is the cookie crumbles and the chocolate custard from our homemade vanilla pudding mix it’s fantastic now.
