I literally cannot believe Summer is already here. This year has FLOWN by…mostly because I was mega pregnant for the first part and now am preoccupied with my too cute baby at all moments (hop over to IG if you need your baby fix!), so it feels like time is just slipping away. It seems like Christmas was just here, and now we are ready to break out the grills and have Summer BBQs!

Easy Tiramisu Cups

Tiramisu is such a goooooood dessert. I love the coffee flavor, the texture, and that creamy mascarpone mixture. I’ll be the first one to order it at a restaurant, and I’ve even made a couple of recipes inspired by it already (hello Tiramisu Martini!) It’s not exactly the easiest dessert to serve at parties though. So of course I fixed that problem and made an easy tiramisu recipe..in cup form.

I love that these little Tiramisu Cups are single serving. You can hold it in one hand and play yard games with the other. We love to have bags tournaments every Summer…although Pat gets way too competitive. I’ll just sit and eat my tiramisu if you don’t mind.

How to Make Tiramisu Cups

This easy tiramisu recipe is just perfect for parties because you don’t have to slice anything or worry about making a mess. Each one is made up in it’s own little cup, easy to serve and easy to eat! I kept the flavor of classic tiramisu, but changed up some of the ingredients to make it more sensible for a party.

Nilla Wafers replace lady fingers (everyone loves a good Nilla Wafer, and they’re easy to find). And I felt like the eggs were unnecessary here, so I skipped that part. But you’ve still got the delicious coffee flavor, the cocoa, and the creamy mascarpone cheese still in tact.

Easy Tiramisu Cup Ingredients:

  • Nilla Wafers
  • Mascarpone Cheese (you can make your own with this recipe)
  • Sugar
  • Milk
  • Fresh Brewed Coffee
  • Cocoa Powder

I found NILLA Wafers to be the perfect substitute for lady fingers in these easy Tiramisu Cups. I always have such a hard time finding lady fingers at the store…by using NILLA Wafers you get that extra vanilla flavor and you don’t have to wonder where to find them! They soak up the coffee quickly so no need to wait and soak. They’re just perfect and SO delicious in these mini cups. OBSESSED!
