Chocolate Chip Cookie Mango Trifle

http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/04/sweets-for-saturday-14_22.html  Chocolate Chip Cookie Mango Trifle

Summer just kicked in. Mangoes are in season. Therefore, I am sharing this sorta ice cream sundae desert with mangoes.

This desert is easy as 1, 2, 3.

***you can decorate the top of the trifle with a cherry, shaved chocolates, 
      but what I did is to top it with  crushed almond roca and a waferstick
      to make it look extra special

2 1/4 cups chocolate chip cookies, crumbled
2 cups custard filling, hot
sliced mangoes or any fruit of your choice
Chocolate Chantilly cream
grated chocolate

In a small bowl or glass, spread successive layers of : chocolate chips crumble, custard, sliced mangoes and chocolate Chantilly cream. End with chocolate chip crumble.  You can make several glasses. Refrigerate for an hour.

Before serving, using a pastry bag with a rosette nozzle, decorate with the chocolate Chantilly cream. Sprinkle with shaved chocolate. Serve.

***put chocolate chip cookies inside a zip-lock plastic bag and crush cookies  
      with a rolling pin or use a food processor


Custard Filling

 2 1/2 cups fresh milk
1/3 cup cornstarch
3/4 cups granulated sugar
6 egg yolks

Blend milk and cornstarch with a wire whisk on top of a heavy saucepan or double boiler, add the remaining ingredients. Cook over low fire until it thickens. Stirring continuously. Remove from fire. Set aside.

Chocolate Chantilly Cream

2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup sifted cocoa

Whip cream and powdered sugar over a bowl of ice water.  Increase speed to high, whipping until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate.
