Place the chocolate sponge cake or brownie cubes in the bottom of a trifle dish or individual serving glasses.
Drizzle the kirsch (if using) over the cake cubes to soak them.
Spread the Opies Black Cherries & Kirsch evenly over the cake layer.
Pour the chocolate custard over the cherry layer, spreading it out to cover evenly.
In a mixing bowl, whip the double cream and icing sugar together until soft peaks form.
Spread the whipped cream over the custard layer in the trifle dish or glasses.
Sprinkle the grated or shaved dark chocolate over the whipped cream layer.
Garnish the Black Forest Trifle with fresh cherries, if desired.
Cover the trifle dish or glasses with cling film and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to meld and the trifle to set.
Serve the chilled Black Forest Trifle and enjoy the delicious layers of chocolate sponge, cherries, custard, and cream!
Optionally, you can add some additional grated chocolate or fresh cherries on top for extra indulgence.
