I can’t believe it’s September already and summer is practically over. Well, not really, at least not around here!
In Southern California you can get nice and hot summer days any time of the year… even in the middle of January.
So I say that any day here is THE perfect day to whip up this summery Italian dessert.
After all, who wouldn’t want to dive, head first, into one of this cute little cup?!?
Take a look.
Every spoonful of this creamy dessert is an amazing combination of sweet and creamy, chocolaty and nutty. It’s the perfect last-minute dessert to impress your guests. It’s laughably easy to bake and ready in no more than 20 minutes.
Oh wait… did I just say “bake’?!? Sorry but NO BAKING is needed for this recipe. Ha! You do love me now… probably as much as I love tiramisu’ :)
This is not your traditional Italian tiramisu’ (here is the recipe for that) but a heavenly concoction of coconut flakes, chocolate shavings, velvety mascarpone cream, and of course, savoiardi cookies soaked in chocolate milk.
There are no eggs in this recipe (for all of you that do not like dessert with uncooked eggs), and no coffee (so that your kids can enjoy it too!).
The secret for an impeccable tiramisu is in the cookies, perfectly dipped in chocolate milk (or coffee in the traditional version). Not too dry and not too soggy. And in a rich and silky cream, just like you see here.
Doesn’t it make you want to lick the screen right now?!?
Ok, please don’t ;)
