I was pretty disappointed w/ this recipe; I'm a huge tiramisu lover, & this wasn't even close.

This recipe got a 10 on the WOW-FACTOR scale. I made a 1 & 1/2 recipe - one for a 13x9 pan to take to a potluck and 1/2 recipe for a 9x9 pan for the kids. I *thought* I had enough ricotta cheese, but ran short. Had to add in some cream cheese and extra mascarpone to come up to the total needed. I used strong brewed coffee for the Kahlua (teetotalers & pregnant women at the potluck) and rum extract for the rum. I used more twinkies in he 13x9 because 10 just didn't cover the bottom - I probably should have cut them in half length-wise and put them cut side up. Overall this was a super sweet dessert. I will make it again with less twinkies and less than the amount of powdered sugar called for. Thanks for adding this recipe to the ZaaR!

I made this to take to a tailgating outing yesterday...everyone loved it. I made a receipe and a half....turned out well. The alcohol was not too strong at all. The creamy stuff was very good, but a different consistency than we're used to....but definitely a keeper!

WoW soooo good my mom who is a big tiramisu fan LOVED it. I would have to agree about the liqour it was a lil strong for my taste and am going to cut it down next time but other than that it was GREAT.

Ha! Great idea... Everyone at work loved it. I didn't even get a chance to take a picture of it. So.. I'll be sure to make another one. I cut back on the liquor, too. I used one ounce of rum and 4 ounces of Kahlua. Also used just under 3 cups of confectioner's sugar. It was very good frozen, too!

I made this for a Father's Day BBQ. It was super easy to make and it tasted great. We do think it was a little heavy with the liquour taste. So I am going to try it again but cut the liquor in half (over the Twinkies). And be sure to pour the liquour over the Twinkies evenly (I thought I had). I had one piece of cake that was over loaded and heavy with liquor and another that was just right. But it tastes great. I love tiramisu! But if you don't like an overwhelming taste of liquour, then cut down on the amount you pour over the Twinkies. Thanks for the recipe!

Grace Lynne, I found this on the Kitsch'n site and tried it too, and IT ROCKS! I actually used about half the confectioners' sugar in the cheese mixture, and I dusted mine with cocoa powder and sprinkled a few mini chocolate chips on top! You guys DO have to try this - it's AWESOME!!!! Perfect summer dessert - no baking!
