Tiramisu

This classic Italian dessert is layered with rich freshly whipped sweet cream, fluffy pound cake, brewed coffee, Kahlua and cocoa powder all in one bite.

Deliciousness beyond words. And one bite may not be enough…

The blend of coffee aroma, heavy cream and cocoa will have your taste buds hooked and you’ll crave another bite and another and perhaps just one more…

You know where I’m headed with this. Cravings come and go so if you happen to want this at 10 pm on a random weeknight or maybe a slither for breakfast, then grab a spoon and go for it.

No worries. We’ve all been there so no judgement there.
