Chocolate Raspberry Dream Trifle

This is a chocolate lovers idea of trifle.

What you need:  1 chocolate sponge cake; 1 small package of raspberry jello, made according to package directions, and partly set; 1 large package of chocolate instant pudding, made according to package directions; 500 ml of whipping cream, whipped as directed below;  1 tbs pure cocoa; 2 tbs icing sugar; 400 gr of your favourite pure chocolate bars, (such as Jersey Milk, Hershey or Lindt - not the kind with nuts, etc in it) or 400 grams of a good baking chocolate* like Bernard Callebaut; 1 cup of hagel sla - (a Dutch pure chocolate sprinkle used on toast - you can get it at any Dutch supply store, or at some European deli's. If you can't find it you can use the chocolate shots sold to decorate cakes, although they are not usually pure chocolate); 1 can of whipped cream, chocolate flavoured if you can find it; 2 tbs of raspberry liqueur; and 2 baskets of fresh raspberries.
If you chose to use Bernard Callebaut, you can use dark, milk or white, or a combination of them all.

What you do: The day before place chocolate bars in fridge to get cold.

Take cold chocolate, and break into small pieces. The most fun and quickest way is to drop (throw) whole packages on the floor -kids LOVE to do this. That way the chocolate is all different sizes and shapes.  Whip the cream with the cocoa and icing sugar. Set in fridge.
 Cut the cake into bite size pieces and place on the bottom and sides of a trifle bowl. Sprinkle liqueur over cake.  Pour 1/2 of partly set jello over cake pieces. Add 1/2 of broken chocolate pieces. Pour in remaining jello. Set into the fridge for about 20 minutes, or until jello is set. Spread 1/2 of chocolate pudding over jello, and add 1/2 of raspberries. Add remaining chocolate pieces. Spread remaining pudding and all but 10 of  remaining berries. Spread whipped cream over everything. Use canned whipped cream to make rosettes around rim of bowl. Decorate with reserved raspberries. Sprinkle hagel sla over everything. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least an hour before serving.

Enoy! - I mean, - really, really, really enjoy.  Ahhhhh chocolate!!!!!
