This Easy Tiramisu Mousse contains my favorite part of the Tiramisu: the mousse! I’m all about the mousse (no cake).
Watching a group of food/dessert bloggers eat dessert at a restaurant is like watching vultures attack. It’s hysterical. But I digress.Watching a group of food/dessert bloggers eat dessert at a restaurant is like watching vultures attack. It’s hysterical. But I digress.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that I was in Santa Barbara this past weekend for the #SBFoodieEscape. I apologize for my overgramming, I just wanted to share allthethings. In fact, I have so much to share about the weekend that I’ll have a whole post soon, but for now I just wanted to talk about Tiramisu.
Because we were a group of food bloggers, eating was a central theme to our weekend. Each meal and restaurant was planned with a group of food and dessert bloggers in mind. Our last dinner was eaten at the Santa Ynez Kitchen in Santa Ynez, CA.
OMG. You guys. That food. If you’re ever in the Santa Barbara/Solvang area go here to eat. Some of the best Italian food ever. Also? I tried octopus, beets, and artichokes. It was a red letter weekend for this picky girl!
{BTW, beets will forever and always taste like dirt to me. How do people eat them and like them???}
The highlight of the dinner was dessert. #obviously
The highlight of dessert, for me? The layered Tiramisu.
When the waiter placed the selection of 4 desserts on the table, the 8 of us attacked them so fast with our spoons that literally the plates were licked clean in less than 5 minutes.
At one point Julianne was laughing so hard because there were 6 spoons at once in the teeny tiny jar of pana cotta and she decided to just let it go rather than fight it.
That’s how food bloggers do. Making copycats of my favorite things is how I do. Hence this Tiramisu Mousse copycat.
It was the best thing I ate all night. (Except for the mushroom pasta that was life changing.)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee (I use the Starbucks Via packs)
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold (see note)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (see note)
  • 8 ounces marscarpone cheese or cream cheese (low fat cream cheese is fine)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ounce semi-sweet baking chocolate

Directions:

  1. Place the instant coffee in the hot water and stir. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  2. Beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Chill until ready to use. (Alternately: you can use an 8 ounce carton of whipped topping. See note.)
