Chocolate Yogurt Tiramisu
This simplified tiramisu is super creamy and delicious.
In a separate bowl combine strong coffee and Kahlua or rum (optional). If you are using Kahlua, sample the coffee syrup before adding 2 tablespoons of sugar (optional) to taste.
Using a 3-4 cups serving dish, place ladyfingers on the bottom, one next to another covering the entire surface area.
Carefully spoon half of the coffee syrup over each ladyfinger.
Next, spoon half of the filling over the wet ladyfingers.
Continue with the next layer by pressing the ladyfingers on top of the filling.
Spoon the remaining coffee syrup over the ladyfingers and then proceed by covering with the remaining filling.
Smooth the surface and sprinkle with cocoa powder.
Garnish with dark chocolate shavings and small chocolate truffles for a more festive decoration.
Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 2 hours before serving.
In a medium bowl combine mascarpone, yogurt cheese, Chocolate Underground yogurt, and vanilla extract.
Blend ingredients well with a spatula or whisk until smooth. Sample the mixture before adding 2 tablespoons of sugar (optional) to taste.
*For Yogurt Cheese:
Using a yogurt cheese maker or layered cheese cloth, strain the whey from 1 quart of yogurt for 3-6 hours in the refrigerator. This should yield 1 cup of yogurt cheese.
