Ingredients

FOR THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE:

  • 4 oz (120 gr) semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy cream

FOR THE TIRAMISU:

  • 12 lady finger cookies — , crushed
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee or espresso — , not hot
  • 2 tbsp Grand Marnier — (optional)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 8 oz (225 grams) Mascarpone cheese at room temperature (I use Belgioiso)

Instructions

FOR THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat heavy cream until it just begins to boil and remove immediately.

    Place chocolate in a bowl and pour hot cream on top.

    Let it sit for 1 minute, then stir with a rubber spatula. Stir continuously, until mixture gets smooth. Let it cool to room temperature, before you add it to the mousse cups.

FOR THE TIRAMISU:

  1. Separate egg yolks and egg whites.

    Beat egg yolks with sugar for 5-7 minutes, until pale and frothy. Fold in the Mascarpone cheese, using a rubber spatula. (I do not recommend mixing it in using a mixer).

    Beat egg whites until stiff peaks (approximately 3-4 minutes ).

    Fold egg whites into the egg yolk Mascarpone mixture.

    Add Grand Marnier to the coffee.

    Start filling the cups: Add 1 tbsp crushed lady fingers to the bottom of the cups, then add 1 tbsp coffee over the lady fingers. Fill with the cream to about 1/2 full.

    Add 1 tbsp crushed lady fingers over the cream and add 1 tbsp coffee over them. Fill cups with more cream leaving 1 centimeter on top, so you can add the ganache.

    Add cooled ganache to fill each cup. Chill for 30 minutes. Serve.
