I love homemade tiramisu, but it is a little heavy sometimes to serve at the end of dinner, so I created this lighter version that uses more egg whites, and less cream and mascarpone cheese. We all love it!

Beat the egg whites until stiff and set aside.
In a jug, beat the egg yolks with the icing sugar until pale. Add mascarpone, cream and vanilla seeds; beat well. When the mixture is very smooth, fold in the stiff egg whites to make a mousse.
Brew some strong coffee, and let it cool in a bowl. Dip each biscuit into the coffee, and layer on the bottom of a dessert dish (or place one into clear glasses if making individual desserts).
Spoon a layer of the mousse on top of the biscuits; sprinkle a layer of grated dark hazelnut chocolate on top. Add another layer of biscuits dipped in the coffee, then a layer of mousse and a layer of grated chocolate. Repeat until all the mousse has been used up, being careful to finish with grated chocolate on top.
