Really good, just like the best restaurant tiramisu. I never could get the chocolate to peel into pretty curls like that, but otherwise it turned out great. This is a labor intensive recipe but not overly complicated - just time consuming, but worth it. I followed the recipe to the "t" - didn't make any changes. I used good Italian mascarone, fresh ladyfingers, and real Kahlua, not a cheaper coffee liqueur. I took it to an Italian potluck dinner, and everybody raved about it. Ten star recipe.
This is an update to my previous review: I made it a second time and used most of 3 packages of ladyfingers instead of 2, which wasn't quite enough. It takes more kahlua than 1/3 cup to sufficiently coat the ladyfingers. And, I still can't get the chocolate to curl using a potato peeler. What's the trick? I'm going to get some chocolate covered coffee beans and put around the top rim of the trifle bowl for a garnish.
