I was originally a little iffy about this. I love some tiramisu and making a quick easy dip sounds perfect for a quick dessert when you have guest over or need to bring something to a gathering. (If we can ever get back to gatherings!) This recipe makes the coffee cup seen above so it’s not a ton which is perfect for a few nights with the family. I used a coffee liqueur syrup I had on hand since my son was eating it. I don’t need a buzzed jacked up on coffee kid in the evening lol. You really don’t even notice there’s no coffee in it either. The sweetness is just right and it’s so light and creamy it spreads nicely on the ladyfingers.
5-Minute Tiramisu Dip
(Adapted from Port and Fin)
275 g Mascarpone cheese
½ cup 35% cream*
3½ Tbsp granulated sugar
1½ Tbsp Kahlua (or other coffee liqueur)
Cocoa powder, for dusting
Ladyfinger biscuits, to serve
In a large mixing bowl, whip the mascarpone for about a minute until creamy.
Beat in cream, sugar, and Kahlua until thick, about 2 minutes.
Divide mixture into 4 small ramekins or other serving dishes. Dust generously with cocoa powder and serve with ladyfingers on the side.
You can easily prepare this ahead of time. Simply make the mixture, divide into cups, and store in the fridge until ready to eat. Dust with cocoa powder right before eating.
Depending on where you live, cream may vary. If you can’t find cream that’s specifically 35%, don’t worry! Any cream with a fat content within the range of 30-35% will give you the desired results (basically just cream you would use to make standard whipped cream).
