Donna Hay's Chocolate Tiramisu

DH - choc tiramisu

I've gotten Donna Hay's Simple Essentials: Chocolate book which has loads of irresistable chocolate recipes in it. Some of them are repeats from her other cook books but who cares haha... as long as her recipe works. This Chocolate Tiramisu is one of them. Simply delish!!!

Chocolate Tiramisu

1/2 cup (single/pouring) cream
300g dark chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups (single/pouring) cream, extra
1 1/2 cups mascarpone cheese
2 tbsp coffee-flavoured liqueur
1/3 cup expresso coffee, cooled
12 store-bought sponge finger biscuits

Line a 32 x 7 x 8cm (12 ¾ x 2 ¾ x 3 ¼ in) bar tin with non-stick baking paper.

Place the cream and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until the chocolate is melted. Set aside to cool.

Whisk together the extra cream and mascarpone until light and fluffy.

In a separate bowl, combine the liqueur and coffee and quickly dip both sides of the biscuits in the mixture.

Pour 1/3 of the chocolate mixture into the tin and top with 1/3 of the cream and half the biscuits.
Top with another 1/3 of the cream followed by the remaining biscuits and cream. Pour over another 1/3 of the chocolate mixture and set the remaining 1/3 aside.

Cover the tiramisu with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 3 hours or until set.

To serve, warm the remaining chocolate mixture in a small saucepan over low heat.

Carefully invert the tiramisu and serve the warm chocolate separately.

Ref: Donna Hay, Donna Hay's Simple Essentials: Chocolate. Recipe can be found here too.

Luckily I have some extra and placed them in glasses cos my tiramisu refused to come out nicely in one block as shown in the book or you can view the block here. Had to scoop them out!
