Fuss-free quick & easy Christmas Black Forest Brownie Trifle

Fuss-free quick & easy Christmas Black Forest Trifle

Christmas is one of my favourite days of the year, as it means I get to cook a lot of food for my family.

Alright here we go, my first recipe of 2017! I've had a very busy last couple of weeks in 2016, including a yearly visit to my family in Belgium for the holidays. I hadn't actually even cooked anything for those 2 weeks apart from the Christmas day appetisers so I'm only too happy to be getting back to blogging and cooking! Unlike last year there won't be many changes on…
