  • 1 ½ teaspoons instant coffee I use the Starbucks Via packs
  • ¼ cup (59ml) hot water
  • 1 cup (237ml) heavy whipping cream cold (see note)
  • 1 ½ cups (170g) powdered sugar see note
  • 8 ounces (226g) marscarpone cheese or cream cheese low fat cream cheese is fine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon (5g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ounce (33g) semi-sweet baking chocolate


  • Place the instant coffee in the hot water and stir. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Chill until ready to use. (Alternately: you can use an 8 ounce carton of whipped topping. See note.)
  • Mix powdered sugar and marscarpone/cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth. Mix in vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of the coffee. Add up to the entire amount of coffee, depending on how strong you want your tiramisu. (I added all of it because that’s how I roll.) Mix in vanilla.
  • Fold whipped cream into coffee mixture gently. Place the tiramisu in a gallon size ziploc bag that is fitted with a large round or 1M tip.
  • Pipe a small amount the bottom of each of 4 serving glasses (my glasses were 6 ounce size). Top the layer with a dusting of cocoa powder. Continue layering the tiramisu and cocoa powder. Once you get to the top layer, grate the 1 ounce of semi-sweet baking chocolate over the tops of the serving dishes (instead of the dusting of cocoa powder). This gives a sweet first taste instead of being bitter from the unsweetened cocoa. Chill, covered, in the fridge until ready to serve.


  • When making whipped cream it's best to start with cold cream. 
  • If using whipped topping, reduce powdered sugar by 1/4 cup so it's not too sweet.
  • Make sure coffee is cool before adding to the mixture!
