Chocolate Tiramisu, the dessert of Decadence

Ahhhhhh..... these glasses of G-O-O-D-N-E-S-S..... The heady Coffee, gooey Chocolate, creamy Mascarpone, soaked Sponge........ Drooolllllll.... Get the drift.......

Tiramisu (tih-ruh-mee-SOO)-The Italian translation for tiramisu is "Pick me up." Also known by names such as Tuscan Trifle and Zuppa Inglese, this heavenly dessert was initially created in Siena, in the northwestern Italian province of Tuscany.
Traditional tiramisu is a pudding-like dessert that normally consists of sponge cake or ladyfingers dipped in liqueur, then layered with grated chocolate and rich custard.

In fact, "pick-me-up", is bit of an understatement. Tiramisu is a desert worthy of a special occasion: neither making nor eating it may be rushed, which is why.... This has been Tiramisu month for me.... served everyone who came home for Diwali..... Took then to Vibha n Vivekji's party, Pushpanjali and Vivek sir's card party..... and loads more......

The feeling while eating these glasses of goodness....... You've spouted delicate white wings and are sitting on a fluffy cloud, with these glasses of G-O-O-D-N-E-S-S. You are in Heaven, and Heaven is in your mouth!

My earlier trysts with this dessert..... You Know.... It's For YOU, Tiramisu..., Chocolate Tiramisu ~ Amrita's Birthday, Cappuccino Tiramisu Cheesecake for Baking Queen ~ Deeba's Birthday. You can use any of these recipes.... they all worked like magic for me..... :) *really smug grin*

There are some more Tiramisu posts coming up too... How can 1 post to justice to the month of Tiramisu..... coming up is Chocolate Tiramisu Cupcakes......

Go on Dig in.....
