Tiramisù truffles are an eggless version of the authentic Italian Tiramisù, very simple to make and great for any occasion. Recently I made these mouthwatering truffles during the TV show Taste of Sunrise hosted by Mary Winners on CCN Sunrise and it was a HIT!
When it comes to Tiramisù, remember to use only SAVOIARDI (Italian crispy ladyfingers) and the best quality ingredients. I personally used Di Stefano cheese mascarpone and it worked beautifully.
You’ll be amazed by their incredible velvety texture. These tiramisu truffles will completely melt in your mouth.

16 savoiardi (Italian ladyfingers)
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
8 ounces mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1 shot espresso coffee
cocoa powder, to dust
In a food processor, pulverize the savoiardi. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar. Blend in the espresso then add the savoiardi and mix thoroughly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls then roll them into cocoa powder.
Store tiramisu truffles in an airtight container in the fridge.
Remove from fridge 10 minutes before serving.
