Bearnaise sauce:

2 egg yolks
4oz butter
2 chopped shallots
1 tablespoon chopped tarragon

Melt the butter in a pan.
Put the egg yolks, shallots & tarragon in a food processor or blender and mix.
SLOWLY dribble in the melted butter, and mix until the sauce is creamy.
choc trifle

slice choc cake or choc swiss roll into single glasses or 1 large bowl, splash with brandy (or cherry brandy is nice )
top with either tinned black cherries or frozen rasperries, whatever you have to hand, make a simple choc mousse
150g marshmallows
50g unsalted butter
250g dark chocolate, minimum 70% cocoa solids
60ml hot water from a recently boiled kettle
284ml tub double cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Get out a good heavy saucepan and snip each marshmallow in half and drop the pieces in the pan.

Add the butter. Chop the chocolate into smallish pieces.

Add water from the kettle, and put the pan on the heat, stirring occasionally until everything is smooth and melted.

Remove from the heat. Whip the cream with vanilla extract until thick, then fold into the chocolate mixture until totally absorbed and smooth again.
splodge onto cake
Put into the fridge to set,
whip some cream on the top and decorate with grated choc and any fresh fruit...

(you can always cheat and use shop bought mousse
