Recipe Comments & Reviews

Tiramisu is one of my son's favorites and when he was home from college recently, I made this as a special treat for after dinner. It was a hit! I substituted marscarpone cheese for the cream cheese since I had already purchased it and used a combination of the strong coffee and the coffee flavored liqueur. Also, in addition to the grated chocolate for the top, I sprinkled some Hershey's cocoa powder on it as well. I will DEFINITELY make this one again...probably for the holidays if not sooner! A real winner!
I love Tiramisu anyway, and thought this was just EXCELLENT
