Berry Infused Tiramisu – Infuse your tiramisu with vibrant flavors by adding a layer of fresh berries, such as strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries, between the layers of mascarpone cream and ladyfingers. You can also macerate the berries in a bit of sugar and liqueur for an extra burst of flavor.
Chocolate Delight Tiramisu- Add a chocolatey twist to your tiramisu by incorporating grated dark chocolate or cocoa powder into the mascarpone cream. Layer chocolate-flavored ladyfingers or even chocolate cake instead of traditional ladyfingers for an indulgent treat.
Salted Caramel Tiramisu– Drizzle caramel sauce between the layers and sprinkle a pinch of sea salt over each layer for a delightful contrast of flavors. This is perfect if you love sweet and salty flavors like I do!Print
