“Tiramisu with Triple Sec liqueur. Not for children or feint of heart! A real Christmas delight. I make these and give them for gifts, and everyone says it's the best they've ever had! Give it a try!”
12hrs 30mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine egg yolks and sugar in medium-sized bowl and beat well.
  2. In 2nd bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. In a 3rd, large bowl, combine egg yolk mixture and the marscapone cheese. Then fold in egg whites until blended. (Don't overmix!).
  4. Arrange ladyfingers tightly around bottom and sides of an 8-inch springform pan.
  5. Using a spoon, dribble less than half of the Triple Sec and less than half the coffee on the exposed surface of the ladyfingers.
  6. Cover the ladyfingers with the marscapone/egg mixture. Now cover that with another layer of ladyfingers.
  7. Cover the second layer of ladyfingers with the remaining coffee & Triple Sec. Sprinkle grated chocolate over the top layer of ladyfingers.
  8. NOW THE HARD PART! Place in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. (I put a dish under springform pan to catch any liquids that may leak).
  9. (Tiramisu can be made 24 hours in advance).
