Chocolate Mocha Trifle

Ever since watching one of Nigella Lawson's trifle episodes on TV in Taiwan, I've been keeping my eye out for a trifle bowl so that i could make one of my own. Never found any in Taiwan and couldn't find any in Poland. I went to Ikea last month in search of one but the best thing i could find were these tall glasses that only sold in packages of 6. Of course i didn't buy them and was kind of bummed out cuz i really, really want to make it! I started to get a bit fussy and whine-y at JLo and there was nothing he could do about it either. Well a month went by and one day, out of the blue, i realized the cup that he has been using to keep his coins in was perfect for a trifle! Waha, he's had that cup ever since his first month in Poland (3 years ago)... and it took us both that long to realize his coin cup could be used for other purposes too. So there, that's was my little story on how i found a cup to make this eye-candy of a trifle. Don't hurt me for making you read this far XD...but please do take a look at the recipe:
