Chocolate fans will cheer this twist on tiramisu: It has ladyfingers infused with cocoa instead of espresso and an ethereal filling of chocolate and cream cheese. One bite and you'll be transported to your favorite trattoria.

    A great recipe for a great desert! I made it for my sister-in-law's birthday (her wish was for a chocolate desert and sth like tiramisu) and everyone was amazed by the result! Couldn't stop with the compliments! Thanks!

    A tasty kid-friendly version of tiramisu! I used mascarpone cheese because I prefer it. I can easily find ladyfinger cookies in the cookie section of any grocery store, but you could also try an Italian bakery or deli, they usually carry tiramisu ingredients including ladyfingers. If you want to add coffee liquor, you could add it to the cream cheese mixture but this might make it runny, I'd put it in the cocoa water and soak the ladyfingers in the liquor mixture.

    I have made this tiramisu several times and what a fantastic dessert. You can add some coffee liquor at the end when you add the remainder of cream cheese. It is delicious and even better when it is made a day ahead.
