Line a 20cm round cake tin with cling film. Slice the trifle sponge fingers in half horizontally and arrange over the base of the prepared tin. In a saucepan over a medium heat, combine the liqueur and the chocolate and stir until melted; remove from the heat and allow to cool. Whisk in the yolks until the mixture is thick and creamy.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the whites into the chocolate. Alternate the layers between the sponge and chocolate mixture, beginning and ending with the sponge. Chill in the fridge to set overnight.
The next day, turn out the trifle pudding and remove the cling film. Whisk the double cream and spread over the pudding. Decorate with grated chocolate.
