    • 1/2 cup American Heritage® Collectible Tin
    • 2 cups heavy cream
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 pound cake cut into cubes
    • 8 ounces whipped cream (make your own or use an 8 ounces container of ready made whipped cream)
    Step 1

    Combine the chocolate and heavy cream in a medium sized sauce pan over medium heat and slowly bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring continuously. When it begins to simmer, add the sugar and stir to combine.

    Step 2

    Add the eggs by tempering them. In a small bowl whisk the egg yolks together until well combined. Whisk one tablespoon of the hot cream mixture into the eggs mixture. Slowly whisk three more tablespoons into the egg yolks, whisking in one tablespoon at a time. Then add the egg mixture into the cream mixture and boil the mixture for 1-2 minutes.

    Step 3

    Take the cream off the heat and let cool. Once it is cooled, refrigerate the cream for at least an hour or until thickened.

    Step 4

    To make individual trifles, place about 10 cubes of pound cake in the bottom of the cup, then place a layer of chocolate cream on top of the pound cake. Then add a layer of whipped cream on top. This makes 6-8 individual trifles. If desired, top with grated chocolate.

    Step 5

    To make a larger trifle, double the recipe.
