I made this for the Iowa State Fair and got 2nd place Overall. I substituted half of the mascarpone cheese with cream cheese and used milk chocolate instead. Was fab! Great recipe!

One our favorites around our home. Made it several times and it was a big hit for family and friends. Make it every year for my daughter's birthday per her request.

Instead of the marscapone, use 1 8 oz cream cheese and 1 8 0z reduced fat cream cheese. This is a winner!

This takes a bit of time to make, but the overall result is well worth it. I make this frequently for special occasions such as holidays and birthdays. Everyone loves it and always asks for the recipe. This is better than many restaurants' tiramisu. Easy to serve and impressive; it just takes time to make. Outstanding!

"Yummy" and easy to make!
