Directions

  1. Beat the mascarpone cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and egg yolk in a bowl until lightly and creamy. Cut the sponge snack cakes in half lengthwise, then in half widthwise, cutting each into 4 pieces. Press two cake pieces into the bottom of a large coffee mug, cream-side-down. Press four cake pieces around the inside of the mug. Repeat with a second mug.
  2. Sprinkle the sponge cake with 2 tablespoons of coffee liqueur per mug. Spoon in half of the mascarpone mixture and place two more sponge cake halves on top, cream-side-down. Sprinkle the tops with the remaining coffee liqueur. Wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

Well, I never thought someone could make me like twinkies.( I remembered that after I ate two out of the box :) The only thing that got me there was the kahlua LOL This was terrific. SO EASY and very tasty. Couldn't even taste the twinkie. I will certainly make a large pan for a party. As you can see in the photos, I put it in a small glass pan so it looked like a traditional tiramisu. This is a real winner. Taste just like tiramisu. I made it last night and had a piece for breakfast by the pool. MMMMM breakfast of champions. This could be one more reason that I am not bikini ready LOL Thanks Witchywoman. YUMMY!

It doesn't get any easier or better than this! Definitely a keeper! The marscapone mixture is delicious. I recommend buying a BIG box of twinkies so you have extras to munch on.

This was VERY GOOD and I actually had a blast making it! I wanted to see all the components, so I layered it in a clear glass. I didn't have any mascarpone, so I used the 'Mascarpone Substitute' recipe from here. Also, I am afraid of raw eggs, so I omitted the egg yolk. Just to make it look more 'classy' I dusted the top with cocoa powder. Tiramisu is one of my all-time favorite desserts and I really enjoyed this fun twist on it! Thanks, WW, for such a fun and delicious recipe that I know I'll be making again! :)

Mmmm! SO yummy. :) Since my main entree was quite labor-intensive, I opted for an easy dessert. Not wanting anything too basic (and needing a dessert I could serve with an Italian-themed holiday meal), I decided on Witchywoman's tiramisu. Not only was this delicious, it took no time flat to prepare (unlike traditional tiramisu). To boot, my ingredient list was short AND inexpensive and the ingredients were easy to find! As with any recipe, I think there is room for improvision. Here are my two suggestions: a) Use pasteurized eggs. They are safe to eat raw (I just can't bring myself to eat raw eggs!) and b) Serve at room temperature. This is my opinion, but if you think about it, tiramisu is never served cold from the fridge (at least not any tiramisu I've had). For a pretty presentation, I served my tiramisu "parfait-style" in pretty wine glasses, sprinkled with cocoa and garnished with fresh mint. I think next time (there WILL be a next time!), I'm going to use ladyfingers instead of Twinkies tho.... I want to see if I like them better (the Twinkies are a neat idea, but I think I'd prefer to subsitute them next time). Thanks for sharing your creative recipe, withcywoman! My dinner guests (parents) give this a thumbs-up. I have yet to convince my hubby he MUST try this again (my way), but that doesn't mean I won't make another attempt to change his mind lol! :-)

Tiramisu is my all time favorite dessert and when I saw this recipe I got all excited! It's a great, easy recipe that definitely taste like the real deal. Loved the filling and you couldn't tell that you had used twinkies. One thing I may do differently next time is decrease the coffee liqueur a little bit, the alcohol bite was just a little much for me. Thanks WW!!
