Hands down, one of my favorite desserts is Tiramisu. What is not to love right? A dessert that combines creamy filling with hint of mocha/espresso soaked cake for one big texture party in your mouth. Instead of the traditional components, I decided to flip this upside down and add chocolate instead of traditional ladyfingers or vanilla sponge cake for a Mochamisu- Tiramisu-Chocolate style.
Looking Back to Rome
Every time I have this dessert, my memory takes me to the streets of Rome eating this incredible masterpiece and wanting to go back for more. Which I did!
Right neat the Spanish Steps is the most incredible, and most delicious pastry shop serving Tiramisu I have ever eaten called Pompi. Check out my post here about this culinary gem. Easily worthy of a score of 20 on a scale from 1-10.
If ever in Rome, you must make a stop at Pompi! You will not be disappointed, I promise! I was so inspired from that delightful dessert that I created a simple Tiramisu cake after returning.
Black replaces White-Martini Style
This dessert gets turned upside down and all around by making this into a mini version, served in mini martini glasses, and using leftover mini chocolate cupcakes in place of ladyfingers.
Even better, this makes the perfect individual serving size and serving this in a mini martini glass makes it such a conversational piece as well. Topped with a dusting of cocoa powder and a chocolate covered espresso bean seals the deal!
Perfect also when served as a trio of fun desserts. I recently had a dinner party and Italian was the theme for the dinner. This dessert was the perfect ending and a fun crowd pleaser.
