1 1/2 Cups Sugar
3/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
4 Cups Milk
8 Egg Yolks
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 (12 Ounce) Package of Mini Vanilla Wafers
1/4 Cup Bourbon
2 Tablespoons Rum
6 Bananas, Sliced
6 Toffee Candy Bars, Crushed - Freeze Before Crushing (Heath Bars)
2 Cups Whipping Cream
2 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar, Sifted

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan: whisk in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Remove from heat.
Beat egg yolks until thick and pale. Gradually stir in one-fourth of hot mixture into yolks. Add the yolk mixture back to the saucepan with remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Cook stirring constantly, 1 minute. Stir in vanilla. Layer one third of wafers in a 16-cup trifle bowl or 4-quart baking dish. Combine bourbon and rum; brush over wafers. Top with one-third of bananas. Spoon one-third of custard over banana and sprinkle with 1/3 cup crushed candy bar. Repeat layers twice.
Beat cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Spread whipped cream over trifle, sprinkle with remaining crushed candy bar. Cover and chill 3 hours.
