Made these last night as an emergency substitute for my usual tiramisu.
The most heavenly 10-minute dessert ever!
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
(lots of vegan options - I used Soya)
1 cup mascarpone cheese, softened
(can substitute soy cream cheese like Tofutti)
2 tablespoons ground espresso coffee
3-4 tablespoons sugar
(or to taste)
4-5 teaspoons brandy
Toasted slivered almonds
Chocolate-covered espresso beans
Vegan chocolate shavings
Blackberries or strawberries
Crushed peppermint candy
Whip the heavy cream to soft peaks in a mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese to soften. Add the ground coffee, sugar and brandy. Mix until well combined.
Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture (be careful not to overmix), cover and chill for at least 2 hours.
Serve in dessert glasses and top with something to make them look festive.
