Chocolate Tiramisu

I love Tiramisu in any form.  I have a 19 year old who doesn't like coffee so making a traditional Tiramisu is a little difficult.  This is a good recipe if you have young kids or even kids on their P plates as you can leave out the alcohol as well.

Chocolate makes everything better doesn't it?

Yes!  I was right wasn't I!!!

**Warning this recipe has raw egg yolks**

4 egg yolks
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 x 250g mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 package of lady finger biscuits or savioradi (Italian sponge fingers)
dark chocolate to grate or cocoa powder

In your stand mixer or mixing bowl place the egg yolks and sugar.

With a whisk attachment whisk together on high until doubled in size and light and fluffy.

Lower the speed to medium and add 1/4 cup of Baileys if desired, and the mascarpone. Whisk until smooth.  Set aside.

Combine 1/4 cup Cocoa powder, sugar and 1 1/4 cups boiling water in a shallow bowl, mix until dissolved.

Dip one side of each ladyfinger in the chocolate mixture and line the bottom of a 9 x 9 x 2-inch dish.

Pour half the mascarpone cream mixture over the top and spread evenly.

Repeat another layer of the dipped ladyfingers over the mascarpone cream.

Top with the remaining half of the mascarpone cream and spread evenly.

Grate dark chocolate generously over the top and refrigerate.

Refrigerate for at lest 4 hours.  Serve
