Chocolate Tiramisu

What’s better than tiramisu? Why, chocolate tiramisu, of course!  

This is Giada de Laurentiis recipe as seen on her show, I forgot which because she has several shows, it’s one of my favorite recipes.  

I made this for Valentine’s last week – I divided the recipe into 3 containers, gave the 2 small ones away and the left-over cookies and filling, I layered it in a goblet  just for me.

Heaven on earth! 😇

Here’s how to make it..recipe follows at the end.  Have fun making Tiramisu! 😋

Savoiardi aka ladyfingers or broas

chocolate zabaglione (pronounced tsah-bahl-YOH-nay)

fold the zabaglione (or sabayon) into the whipped Marcarpone and cheese

start layering, I like to smear a little of the filling at the bottom to prevent it from sticking but it’s not necessary, it’s just out of habit, I do the same with lasagna or any layered dish

it’s not part of the recipe but I always put grated chocolate before adding on another layer, just because..

mine, mine, mine! ♥♥♥   I want some more…
