Tiramisu is a classic, irresistible dessert, and these Tiramisu Cups are no exception! A slightly sweet and tangy mascarpone whipped cream is layered with spiked-coffee-dipped lady fingers and then dusted with cocoa powder. Each spoonful comes out with layers of decadence and your Tiramisu Cup will be gone before you know it.
First thing’s first, we need to get it out in the open that this is not a classic tiramisu recipe, but moreso a spin off of it. Classic tiramisu is a timely work of art and requires a little bit more love and attention. That’s all great, but these Tiramisu cups can be done and assembled in around 30-45 minutes. You don’t have to temper any custard or worry about raw egg consumption. A quick and delicoius dessert that tastes pretty darn close to the traditional dish. Count me in!
Next, let’s talk about the different layers. A mascarpone-infused whipped cream takes the place of a classic mascarpone custard. It’s fluffy as can be and can be eaten by the spoonful. Heck, if you happen to have any extra left over (doubtful), you could use the mascarpone whipped cream as a fruit dip! Strawberries would be great.
In between the mascarpone whipped cream layers, you have coffee-dipped lady fingers. Now, these aren’t just any coffee-dipped lady fingers. The freshly brewed coffee is infused with a little brandy and amaretto to give it a little extra something. Combining coffee and amaretto is a match made in heaven!
Not only are these Tiramisu Cups delicious and simple to make, but they can also be made in advance! That makes them a perfect dessert to feed a crowd, take the stress out of entertaining, or make it so that dessert is ready to go for date night. No oven required!
