Tiramisu means “pick me up” in Italian and is a deliciously indulgent dessert. It’s usually difficult just to stick to one serving. Fortunately, these mini tiramisu cups are not only easy to make, but unlike classic tiramisu, they also make it easier not to overindulge. With individual tiramisu cups, you can enjoy your own serving of dessert without worrying that you go overboard.

Cream cheese and homemade custard are layered with coffee-soaked ladyfingers, and topped with cocoa powder. Every bite is rich and creamy and packed with coffee flavor! You don’t need any fancy ingredients, simply look to your pantry. This is an easy dessert to make, especially if you’re having guests over!

How To Make Tiramisu Cups

First, a custard is made by gently heating the eggs with the other custard ingredients until it starts to thicken. The cream cheese is added and whisked in until smooth. The ladyfingers are dipped into the hot coffee mixture—it shouldn’t be soaked too long, otherwise, the biscuits will break apart.

Layer the biscuits and cream cheese custard into individual glasses, ending with piped custard and topping with cocoa powder, and decorating with a few coffee beans.

Tips For Individual Tiramisu Cups

These Mini Tiramisu Trifles can be made ahead of time and stored for up to 4 hours in the fridge before serving. Leave the cocoa powder until right before serving. You can make them the day before, but the biscuits will start to lose more texture.

If you don’t mind alcohol, you can add a tablespoon of liqueur to the coffee.

Make an eggless tiramisu by whisking together 1 cup heavy cream, 1 cup mascarpone, ½ cup powdered sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

How To Store Mini Tiramisu Trifles

Cover the leftovers with plastic wrap and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. Note that the biscuits will become soggy with time.
