The weather lately has been just perfect for the start of BBQ season, and today I’m sharing one of my new favorite EASY dessert recipes. This easy dessert recipe is just begging to be made for all your outdoor festivities!
These EASY TIRAMISU CUPS don’t call for any whipping of eggs or soaking of lady fingers. It’s a super simple and remixed twist on a classic, using NILLA Wafers to add even more flavor to one of the most delicious desserts of all time!
If you like classic tiramisu, you’ll love this fun version to serve at parties.
Easy Tiramisu Cups
Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts. 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.

How to Make Tiramisu Cups
This easy 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 its own little cup, easy to serve and easy to eat! I kept the flavor you know and love, 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.
- Nilla Wafers
- Mascarpone Cheese (buy pre-made at the store or you can make your own with this homemade mascarpone recipe)
- Fresh Brewed Coffee
- Cocoa Powder

Nilla Wafer Desserts
NABISCO has made it super fun and easy to remix classic BBQ recipes with their delicious line of treats. 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!

An important caveat: this recipe yields 4 restaurant-sized (i.e., smaller than I’d prefer :) servings. Definitely not 8. I also found it easier to manage the mascarpone mixture with a spoon rather than with a piping bag. Great taste. I probably prefer lady fingers, but in a pinch, this is a quick and acceptable alternative.
What size cup do you recommend? How many cups does this make per serving?
A serving should be about 1/2 of a cup. This recipe makes 8 (1/2-cup) servings or 4 (1-cup) servings!
# 5 and more chocolate…
The cocoa powder!
