Tiramisu is a great dessert and believe it or not it is very easy to make. However, if you feel like you would love to start with something easier then this 5 minute tiramisu dessert dip is right for you. Truth be told it may take 6 minutes. This will depend on how powerful your mixer is.
Anyways, no matter how long it takes it tastes like the real deal. Like the Italian tiramisu! Just this is in a form of a dip. The only difference here is that I skipped the assembling part because why not, right? This way we cut down the prep time and didn’t go into the “trouble” of dipping ladyfingers in coffee. Plus the layering was also omitted.
So if you like rich creamy dips, then you must try this one. It is perfect for any occasion. Speaking of occasions – it could be a great homemade dessert for Valentine’s Day. Just saying.
Oh, and speaking of Valentine’s Day desserts: Are you planning on making something for your loved ones? Do you have an idea already? If you are looking for easy homemade desserts then look at this Mini Naked Chocolate Cake Hearts or Mixed Berry Charlotte Cake.
