Hazelnut chocolate mousse tiramisu


Be the first to make this!

About this recipe: 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!


Serves: 15 

  • 8 egg whites
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 150g mascarpone
  • 150g whipping cream
  • seeds from inside 1 vanilla pod
  • very strong brewed coffee
  • 1 packet Rich tea(® biscuits
  • 1 (100g) bar dark chocolate with hazelnuts, grated

Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr15min 

  1. Beat the egg whites until stiff and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
