Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Double Chocolate Tiramisu

This got thumbs up from all that had it. It's excellent and very easy to make.

Double Chocolate Tiramisu

2 TBS. unsweetened cocoa powder, more for garnish
1 1/2 c. heavy cream
4 ounces chocolate chips, ( I used 60% cocoa darker chocolate chips)
1- 8oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
24 ladyfinger cookies ( 7oz package)

1. In a medium bowl, mix cocoa powder with 1 1/2 c. very hot water until dissolved; set aside.
In a small sauce pan combine 1/4 cup cream and chocolate on medium low heat until melted. Cool to room temperature.

2. Transfer cooled chocolate mixture to a mixing bowl and add cream cheese and sugar. Beat using a mixer until blended. Add remaining 1 1/4 c. of cream and beat until fluffy. Approx. 2 mins.

3. Spread 1/4 cup chocolate filling in the bottom of a loaf pan. One at a time dip 6 lady fingers in the cocoa mixture, then arrange in a single layer in dish. Spread 3/4 cup chocolate mixture over lady fingers and repeat until cookies are used up and end with chocolate mixture on top.

4. Cover the tiramisu and refrigerate at least 2 hours (or up to 2 days). Dust with cocoa powder before serving.
