Tiramisu Cream Cups
Have you ever made a dessert and couldn’t figure out what to call it? Well, such was the case with this recipe.
I love tiramisu with its cookies and the cream layers. Yet, it was really the cream layer that I was craving; so I decided to make an unusual tiramisu, one without ladyfingers.
At this time of year, it is easier to find chocolate dessert cups in specialty stores and certain grocery stores. As soon as I saw swirled milk and white chocolate flower cups, my dessert came together.
I whipped up the mascarpone mixture and decided I couldn’t resist adding Godiva Chocolate Liqueur. I topped the cups with raspberries. Delicious and beautiful!
It is not even close to traditional, but sometimes it is good to bake outside the box. Or, as is the case here, outside the ladyfingers.
