  1. Put the cream and chocolate in a saucepan. Heat gently, stirring, until the chocolate has completely melted. Cover the surface with cling film, then refrigerate.
  2. Place the brownies in the bottom of a bowl and mix the coffee with 1 T Amarula. Drizzle all over the brownies. Using a rolling pin or pan, gently tap the Chuckles a few times to crush them a bit, then sprinkle about three-quarters over the brownies. Spread the chilled chocolate cream on top, then add a layer of chocolate sauce before covering and chilling.
  3. Combine the cream and remaining Amarula in a bowl. Sift in the icing sugar, then beat until soft peaks form. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  4. To serve, give the cream a quick stir, then spoon it over the chocolate sauce layer. Scatter over the crushed last laughs, raspberries and meringues, and dust with gold dust.
