You have heard me say many times when I post a tiramisu recipe that they are one of my favorite desserts. This individual tiramisu mouse though is perfect. It is easy to eat out of the glass and it does leave out the liquor and the ladyfingers. Don’t worry though, you will never miss them. It doesn’t take much time to throw this delightful recipe together. I do prefer letting it set up in the fridge for a couple of hours though. Can’t wait? Make yourself a small serving like I did and dig in.
Tiramisu Mouse- Serves 8
*see notes after recipe
*1 1/2 tsp. of instant coffee (optional), *1/4 C hot water (optional), 2 C heavy whipping cream, 3 C powdered sugar, *16oz. coffee flavored marscarpone cheese, 2 tsp. vanilla extract, 2 TB cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips.
Place the coffee I hot water and stir until the coffee is dissolved. Set aside.
Beat heavy whipping crème until soft peaks form. Keep in fridge until ready use.
Mix marscarpone cheese and powdered sugar until completely blended. Mix in vanilla and *TB of Coffee(optional) or more depending how strong you like it.
Fold whipping crème into coffee mixture.
Pipe mixture into a bottom of a glass. Sprinkle with cocoa powder, Pipe more of your whipping crème mixture on top of the cocoa powder. Continue layering until you have reached almost the top of the glass. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
*If using coffee flavored marscarpone, you may not need to use the instant coffee. It just depends on how strong you like it. If you cannot find the coffee flavored, regular marscarpone works great as well and then you will need the coffee for sure.
