Tiramisu Brownies

I am a huge fan of coffee and coffee-related foods, so tiramisu is obviously a favorite of mine. When the concept of a Tiramisu Brownie was mentioned, I was immediately excited.

The four flavors offered are: Colombia, House Blend, Italian Roast, and French Roast.

Luckily, I still had some Walkers Shortbread leftover! 1 tablespoon coffee flavored liqueur 1 tablespoon hazelnut flavored liqueur 2 ounces boiled water 1 heaping teaspoon espresso granules 8 shortbread cookies (I used Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread) 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 1 container (8 oz.) mascarpone cheese 1 tablespoon mini semi sweet chocolate chips 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder So before I go into the recipe, I just wanted to talk about one of the small businesses near me, Wedge + Fig in Philadelphia. They are an amazing cheese shop, brunch location, and also serve some of the best and most creative paninis … Continue reading
