Why Make this Creamy Tiramisu?

Can I make chocolate tiramisu ahead of time?

Absolutely. In fact, I encourage it! Make it 1-2 days ahead of serving day and it’ll be amazing.

Can I substitute melted chocolate chips for the ganache?

I don’t recommend it, unless you know how to properly melt chocolate. If you don’t melt it correctly, the chocolate can seize and turn grainy which ruins the tiramisu and it’s texture/flavor.

Chocolate Ganache

  • cups heavy cream
  • cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Chocolate Mascarpone Cream

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 16 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • cups prepared chocolate ganache
  • 1 cup powdered sugar or more to taste
  • 15 ounces ladyfingers biscuits
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups strong brewed coffee


To Make the Ganache

  • Add the heavy cream to a small pot on the stove, and heat up on medium-low heat. Meanwhile, add the semisweet chocolate to a large, heat safe bowl.
  • Once the heavy cream is hot, but not bubbling, pour it on top of the chocolate chips. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes without touching. Once the time is up, whisk gently using a whisk and until the chocolate is completely smooth. Set aside.

Chocolate Mascarpone Cream

  • To a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, add the mascarpone cheese, the heavy cream, vanilla extract, instant coffee, powdered sugar, and 1 & ½ cups of the chocolate ganache. Use a whisk attachment, and let it whisk on medium speed until well mixed and fluffy. The cream should be in stiff peaks.

Assembling The Tiramisu

  • Begin by lightly dipping the ladyfingers in the coffee. Make sure not to over-dip them otherwise they'll be soggy. Layer them in 1 even layer in the bottom of a 9×13 pan.
  • Spread half of the chocolate mascarpone cream on top of the soaked ladyfingers, making sure to spread it around evenly.
  • Now, add the remaining chocolate ganache on top of the cream. You should have ½-¾ cup remaining. Swirl your pan around to get it to spread around evenly.
  • Repeat the soaked ladyfinger biscuits.
  • Add the remaining chocolate mascarpone cream and spread it evenly.
  • Refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours, preferably overnight.
  • When serving, top with cocoa powder, chocolate shavings, or chocolate ganache.


  • Make sure to do your ganache first so it has time to sit. 
  • Do not substitute melted chocolate. Improperly melted chocolate can seize and turn the dessert grainy and chunky. 
  • Top with cocoa powder when serving only, otherwise it might get damp.
