Creamy Choco Biscuit Trifle -Blog Hop Wednesday

I have been a reader since my schooldays (not academic books...I used to run away from them).....loved reading novels - always Fiction..... never liked books that gave me advice...I have a mini library at collecting novels....always original...not a single fake copy... like visiting book favorite bookstore in Bangalore is Blossoms...each time I go there I tell my sisters "If I want to loot something,it will be this bookstore" the smell of second hand books,dusty and old,couple of sneezes here and there .I was so proud of my collection...and also possessive , I gave my books only to book lovers who knew the value of  books and I was sure I will get it back. Whenever my cousins borrowed my books ,I used to warn them "I know exactly how many novels I have, I will notice even if a single book is missing"...that is how much I love my books.

When I was paired with Jyothi from Pages this week,  went through her is not only about food, Jyothi has dedicated major part of her blog reviewing books.when I went through the crazy collection of book reviews, I felt so guilty...I realized that I haven't read a single book after I started my blog....I have been so unfair to my first true passion.I did not waste any time ,I had a backlog of novels I wanted to hold of one book which I had got 6 years back ,very old novel...but I always wanted to read it- To Kill A Mockingbird written by Harper Lee

I would like to thank Jyothi, not only for the recipe...but also for rekindling my love towards books. I am half way through my novel and I am enjoying it with my Creamy choco biscuit trifle.

  • 300ml Fresh Cream
  • 1/4 cup Icing Sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup Chocolate chips or grated chocolate
  • 200g Chocolate Chip biscuits/cookies

For Ganache

  1. Coarsely crush the chocolate chip cookies/biscuits in a ziploc bag using a rolling pin..Keep aside
  2. Whip fresh cream with icing sugar till its stiff. Keep in the fridge till further use.
  3. For ganache:- roughly chop the chocolate and place in a small bowl along with oil .Heat cream in a saucepan on low flame.When the cream comes to a simmer ,pour over the chopped chocolate. Cover and let stand for few minutes.Mix till you get a smooth sauce.Keep aside to cool.
  4. Now arrange the trifles in glasses or any bowl of your choice. Layer it with the crushed cookies/biscuits,then the second layer with whipped cream(I used an icing bag),third layer- chocolate chips or grated chocolate.Repeat the layering- cookies/biscuits and then cream.The final layer - Ganache.
  5. Top with halved cherries.
  6. Keep in the fridge for a day before serving, this helps to moisten the crushed biscuits/cookies.

  1. Cherieee!! I love books too!! And just like u I have memories of Reader's Delight, the famous private library in Mangalore (light house hill road), love the smell of books & everything u mentioned rang a bell in my head too! I have't touched my ever growing collection ever since I started a blog! Guilty as charged!! Thanks, I need to go back to them..To Kill a Mocking Bird is a great book, watch the movie also after that. If we lived in the same city we could have exchanged books too :) By the way, your choco biscuit trifle looks like a perfect party dessert!

  2. Ohh.. love your clicks.! That trifle looks soooo good.! BTW To kill mocking bird is a great book.. Am guilty of not reading enough after kids! :o)

  3. Lovely looking trifles, looks so yummy..., that book is my daughter's favourite, i love reading novels (apart from acadamic books) i am yet to read that one, i have aini library too, lovely clicks

  4. Ahh. You have evoked the fresh memories of me cuddled in a corner with old n dusty books surrounded in our nearby lending library. Trifle seems a good companion while enjoying those books.
