    • 600ml whole milk
    • few drops vanilla extract
    • 6 egg yolks
    • 1tbsp cornflour
    • 200g Nutella
    • 1 loaf chocolate chip brioche
    • 300mls whipping cream
    • 100g bar Hazelnut Ritter Sport


    • Warm the milk and vanilla in a pan. Whisk the egg yolks and cornflour. Slowly pour the warmed milk into the eggs, whisking, then pour the mixture back into the pan. Heat, stirring, until thickened.

    • Pour into a bowl and stir in the Nutella until melted and chocolatey. Cover with cling film (rest it on the surface so it doesn’t form a skin) then chill until completely cold.

    • Whip the cream and chop the chocolate into chunks. Layer up the trifle in a serving bowl with the brioche and custard, top with the cream and chocolate and chill until ready to eat.
