So, here’s how to make tiramisu truffles, a yummy and irresistible last-minute recipe. You can make it in just a few minutes.
Put the mascarpone, the powdered sugar and the bitter coffee in a bowl. Whip the ingredients with a hand mixer with the whisk attachment or with a fork (1). Mix well until combined and smooth (2). Add the crushed ladyfingers to the mascarpone mixture (3).
Mix until all ingredients are combined. Put in the refrigerator for thirty minutes or in the freezer for at least ten minutes (4). Once removed from the fridge, take a little dough in your hands and flatten it (5). Now add Nutella or a hazelnut cream in the middle (6).
Shape the mixture into bitesize balls (7). Roll the ball into unsweetened cocoa powder (8). Once your tiramisu truffles are ready, place them on flute paper cases before serving (9).
We recommend that you put the tiramisu truffles in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving, so that all the flavors are perfectly combined.
The dough will get less sticky if you put it in the refrigerator or freezer before preparation.
As for ladyfingers, stick to the amount of the recipe: adding more ladyfingers might make the dough too dry.
Instead of Nutella or any hazelnut spread, you can fill your tiramisu truffles with white chocolate or pistachio spread. If you don’t want chocolate filling, just make your truffles and roll in unsweetened cocoa powder without adding any creamy filling.
If you are allergic and you need to use eggless cookies, replace the savoiardi with eggless cookies. Even mascarpone can be replaced with ricotta.
Lastly, instead of unsweetened cocoa powder, you can roll each ball in flaked sweetened coconut.
