This recipe is from Walt Disney's Pop Century Resort. I have not made it yet but my hubby loves Tiramisu and this looks fun and different.

Directions

  1. Espresso Syrup: Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium high heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat, cool and add coffee and brandy.
  2. Mascarpone Filling: Beat mascarpone, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold gently whipped cream into mascarpone mixture.
  3. To assemble: Place a layer of the Twinkie slices in the bottom of a shallow 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Drizzle with half of the Espresso Syrup. Spread with half of the Mascarpone filling. Repeat with the remaining Twinkie slices, syrup and filling.
  4. Smooth top with a spatula. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before serving. Just prior to serving, sift cocoa to lightly dust the top.

WOW! This was really good. I made it for the first time with some friends over for dinner, and EVERYONE loved it. I did however make a few changes. I don't drink Coffee so instead I used caramel syrup (like ice cream topping), and I used 2/3 C sugar instead of 1/3. I just thought it needed a little more while I was making it, but after it was in the fridge and the flavors and meshed together, I could have probabilly left out the extra sugar. I think next tine I'll try it that way and see what happends. This was wonderful!
