Two Minute Tiramisu

I whipped this dessert up in a surprisingly short time as we had unexpected guests for dinner.  I was impressed with not only the ease, but the luxurious taste of this creamy tiramisu dessert.  The cream and mascarpone create such a silky texture which work perfectly with the coffee soaked fingers.  I would make this over and over again!

Ingredients
1 generous tbsp instant coffee granules
1 tsp mocha granules or drinking chocolate (optional)
1/2 cup boiling water
125g savoiardi sponge finger biscuits
3/4 cup thickened cream, full fat
1/3 cup icing sugar
500g mascarpone cheese
1/3 cup marsala wine
2 tsp drinking chocolate, to sprinkle

Method

Stir coffee, water and mocha granules/drinking chocolate in a small bowl until combined.  Cut biscuits in half and set aside.  Beat cream, icing sugar, and cheese with electric mixer until soft peaks form; then slowly beat marsala through. Dip half of biscuits in coffee mixture; divide among four 11/2 cup glasses.  Divide half of mascarpone mixture among glasses. Dip remaining biscuits in coffee mixture; divide among glasses, top with remaining mascarpone mixture,  Serve dusted with 2 tsp drinking chocolate.

  8. Fabulous! It made my mouth water and I am not even hungry... I have just printed it out and please forgive the question, but what is "drinking chocolate"?

    Merci! Have a great day!

  11. Beautiful and impressive! I love tiramisu, but it is dangerous for me to know that I can whip it up that quickly. I am going to try to forget that I ever saw this, or that I have marsala....
