Chocolate Orange Trifles

So… another taster and another chocolate themed pud! These were part of my Christmas taster contribution. And if I do say so myself, they are absolutely marvellous! Who needs Jaffa cakes, eh? (Well… my husband, that’s who, but anyway…).

These are great for entertaining as you can make them in individual glasses (or in my case, plastic cups).

Makes 10 individual trifles @ 2 Syns each


  • 2 Oranges
  • 2 sachets Hartley’s Sugar Free Orange Jelly
  • 2 sachets powdered gelatine
  • 600ml boiling water
  • 400ml cold water
  • 5 sponge fingers
  • 3 sachets Chocolate Orange Options
  • 4 tbsp sweetener
  • 3 tbsp hot water
  • 500ml Fat Free Fromage Frais
  • 3 Muller Light Chocolate Orange
  • 1 Hifi Light Choc Orange bar
  • 12 tsp Choc Shot Orange Spice


  1. Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, being careful to remove all the bitter white pith. Then cut along the membranes to remove each segment, removing any pips as you go. Once both oranges are segmented, chop into small pieces and distribute between the glasses
  2. Pour both sachets of jelly and the extra sachet of gelatine into a measuring jug. Add 600ml boiling water. Whisk well to remove any lumps then top with cold water to make up 1 litre
  3. Pour the jelly over the orange pieces – it should come just under half way up each glass
  4. Break the sponge fingers in half, then break each half into 5-6 pieces and drop into the jelly in each glass
  5. Then place the glasses in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow the jelly to set
  6. Meanwhile, combine the Options, sweetener and hot water in a bowl to make a paste – it should be the texture of cake mixture. If it’s too stiff add a little more hot water. Mix well to dissolve the powder and sweetener as much as possible
  7. Then fold in the fat free fromage frais, tasting as you go. If you want a stronger orange flavour you can also add a drop of orange essence
  8. Remove the glasses from the fridge and top each with the fromage frais mixture – it should be enough for about a 1.5cm deep layer on each portion (depending on the size of the glasses used)
  9. Return the glasses to the fridge for approximately one hour to allow the mixture to set a little
  10. Once the fromage frais layer has set, spoon the chocolate orange Muller Light over each glass, distributing the three pots as evenly as possible. Then return the glasses to the fridge to set again for at least half an hour
  11. Place the Hifi Light bar in a bowl and microwave for one minute, then mix with 2 tsp of Choc shot. Divide this mixture into 10 portions (approx 1/3 of a tsp per glass) and place on top of the yogurt layer in the centre of each glass
  12. Finally, measure out a level tsp of choc shot for each glass and drizzle over the top
