The Finale!~Tiramisu Mousse

My favorite part of just about every meal is dessert. What can I say? I have a sweet tooth! I truly do believe there is absolutely nothing wrong with having dessert first!!! The dessert for our Homestyle Lasagna Dinner is Tiramisu Mousse. I have made this many times; as it was quite a popular choice when I worked for a catering company. It differs from the classic Tiramisu because we won't be using ladyfingers soaked in coffee. But you will love it. A good thing about this dessert is that it must be made ahead of time so that the mousse has time to set. So there are no last minute preparations to do. You can make this dessert and leave it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve it. Here's what you need:



1 cup Mascarpone Cheese
3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup Brewed Coffee
2 Egg Yolks, beaten
1 cup Whipping Cream, beaten to soft peaks
Cocoa Powder or Semisweet Chocolate Bar

Put your Mascarpone Cheese in your mixing bowl.
Add your Sugar.
Add your Brewed Coffee.
Add your 2 beaten Eggs.
Mix your ingredients together.

In a separate bowl, mix your heavy whipping cream. We have 
made this before back on 7/16/10. If you don't recall, just go to
Beat your cream to soft peaks, like this.
Fold the cream into the Tiramisu mix.  
Carefully pour the mousse into
individual goblets.
You can make these about 3 hours ahead of time, then
chill in the refrigerator. When it's time to serve, pull them out, and shave 
chocolate over the top, or sprinkle cocoa powder over the top.
Isn't it pretty!!

  1. I am having such fun going back on your blog.
    This recipe is one I want to make. You mentioned it was one you catered in the past. It says you should make it three hours before serving. Is it possible to make much earlier? I won't have time three hours before serving and am hoping I can do it the night before an afternoon dinner party. Thanks....
