This is probably the number one requested dessert that I make. I generally stick to doing it only during Christmas because it takes 3 - 4 hours to make. It's a pretty involved dessert but the end result is fantastic. It's not a traditional English Trifle, and it's not quite a traditional zabaglione either (it does have chocolate in it after all), but then again I'm an American with German parents, making an English dessert with an Italian cream in it so who cares about traditional recipes?
This is but one of my many recipes. Here's a list [photoblog.com] of all the recipes that I've posted.
