TwD: Tira-mini-su Cake

I went on a trip to Italy when I was a sophmore in high school and I remember trying very hard to like tiramisu. It was just so cool, with it's layers of creamy stuff. I couldn't stand the smell or taste of coffee and so I could never muster even a bite. But hey, as I've aged I have grown to love coffee, out of habit or necessity after long nights who knows. The only for sure thing is that I love my cup of joe. 
And this week I found out that I love my cup of tiramisu. I cut the recipe in 8ths and assembled it in a wine glass. Perfect for the mini tiramisu cake. Though the chocolate chips do like monstrous! 
I'm not a big fan of marscapone, so I substituted another creamy cheese - Neufchatel. It was yummy! This was a great little 'pick me up' chosen my Megan of My Baking Adventures

Big chocolate chips are A-ok with me! And that was the perfect size - so glad you liked it!

Glad you liked it!! I've had tiramisu a few times before and never enjoyed it, but I thought Dorie's recipe was great!

Sounds like a good sub...I like Neufchatel also. This looks very yummy...I can see my family loving to cuddle up with a cup of this in the evening.
