Recipe: Tiramisu Trifles




Some things are just too good for words!  I made these cups of deliciousness for a casual dinner having my parents over this past weekend.  The original recipe can be found here but I adapted it a little to suit us.

Ingredients:

For the base:
  • 1 cup Cool Whip Light
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Kahlua
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso granules
For layering:
  • 1 cup Cool Whip Light
  • 1/2 cup chocolate cookie crumbs
For the garnish:
  • Italian ladyfinger cookies
How-To:
  1. Prepare "Layering" ingredients by mixing ingredients listed together and set aside.
  2. Combine whip cream and granulated sugar (from "Base" ingredients) in a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine ricotta cheese, cocoa powder, vanilla, and instant espresso granules. Beat until blended.
  4. Add ricotta mixture to the base ingredients mixture, gently fold in with a rubber spatula until no white streaks remain.
  5. To assemble, start with a layer of the ricotta mixture. Next, add a layer of the whipped cream, and then a layer of cookie crumbs. Repeat until all ingredients are used, and garnish with leftover crumbs and a ladyfinger cookie.
  6. Best if refrigerated at least 2 hours before serving.
Enjoy!
