    3. To prepare strawberries, cut off he green leafy part and cut the strawberries straight in half. Put half of your chocolate mousse mixture into your Trifle bowl, add half of your whipped cream to the top of the mousse, then place strawberries into cream, surrounding the outside of the bowl, inside of strawberries should be pushing against the glass bowl. Now add rest of the mousse, then rest of cream on top of that, and place remaining strawberries on top in a big pile, sprinkle crushed flake over top. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or over night.

Notes

This recipe works best if allowed overnight setting time Ensure your eggs are at room temperature When melting chocolate, do not let the simmering water touch the bottom of the bowl
