Kids’ party food idea: Mini trifle cups

These mini trifle cups are really easy to make. I used small china tea cups which matched the theme of the party.

I poured a layer of strawberry jelly into the bottom of each cup, then popped in the fridge for 30 minutes to set. I then did another layer of orange jelly and left to set again. A layer of instant custard followed and I covered each cup with cling film and left in the fridge again to set.

Just before serving I added the final touches. I cut chocolate flakes into thirds and placed one end into the set custard to keep it in place. I then used squirty cream to create a 99 ice cream look, followed by a sprinkling of hundreds and thousands.

PS. You might want to serve these with spoons… kids attempting to eat jelly with a flake could get slightly messy!
