Tiramisu Trifle

One of my favorite desserts is Tiramisu.  I love the coffee flavor!  So I was thinking…why not turn it into a trifle?  There’s just something about a nice chilled trifle on a hot summer day!  Don’t you think?


The Tiramisu part of this recipe is in my cookbook.  Add a couple of boxes of instant chocolate pudding and a tub of whipped topping and you’ve got yourself a nice twist on an old classic!  For best results…make a day ahead so it sets up nicely and has time to chill.


Whenever I make Tiramisu, I tend to use the soft Lady Fingers found in the Bakery section of the grocery store because I have a hard time finding the crunchy cookie-like Lady Fingers (some times found near the canned tomatoes or Italian section).  When dipping the Lady Fingers in the coffee mixture, you don’t want to soak them or they’ll fall apart or be too mushy.  Just barely dip both sides of them into the coffee…they’ll have plenty of flavor.


You can arrange them like this or completely fill in the bottom.  There’s more than enough Lady Fingers in the package to add as much as you want.


Once you make the Tiramisu part, spread it over the Lady Fingers.


Prepare 2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding and spread it evenly over the Tiramisu.


Spread the whipped topping over the chocolate pudding and sprinkle with shaved chocolate.

    Oh how pretty everything is! I had tiramisu for the very first time when I was in Spokane visiting recently. My friend made the ladyfingers from scratch! So glad you shared…I’m a coffee hound myself.
