“This is a traditional Italian tiramisu with the coffee replaced by hot chocolate. The first time I saw tiramisu was at a bakery in Italy. It looked tempting and I assumed it was chocolate. I was so disappointed when I tasted it & realized it was coffee flavored. I have now created a version that tastes as good as it looks. Note - the preparation takes a while, but is not difficult.”
