Chocolate-Raspberry Tiramisu

To make this nontraditional, summery tiramisu even fancier, use a mixture of red, gold, and black raspberries.

Cooking Light MAY 2003

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup raspberry-flavored liqueur, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) block fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 12 cake-style ladyfingers, split
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries
  • Mint sprigs (optional)


Place powdered sugar, mascarpone cheese, 1 1/2 tablespoons liqueur, and cream cheese in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until well blended.

Brush cut sides of ladyfingers with 2 1/2 tablespoons of liqueur. Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons mascarpone mixture over bottom half of each ladyfinger; cover with tops.

Arrange 3 filled ladyfingers spoke-like on each of 4 dessert plates. Sprinkle evenly with cocoa. Arrange 1/2 cup raspberries over each serving. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
