Tiramisu Dip Recipe Makes a Simple Summer Dessert

As a Hamilton Beach Ambassador I was provided with the mixer I used to create this recipe but all opinions expressed are my own.

Have you ever found a recipe online and said “YES! I want to make that!” and then realized that…well, you either don’t have or can’t find several of the ingredients in the darn thing? That is where a little bit of creativity comes in! I saw a delicious Tiramisu recipe on Food.com. I thought it would make a great summer dessert for backyard barbecues or just feeding hungry children over summer vacation. However, my grocery store doesn’t apparently think that Mascarpone cheese is important enough to keep in stock and I was too lazy to drag myself to the liquor store for a bottle of Kahlua. Oh, and did I mention I have a lame coffee maker that only makes COFFEE and not espresso? Yeah…I had to do a bit of creative substituting for this Tiramisu dip but it honestly came out delicious if I do say so myself!

Tiramisu Dip

You will need a mixer of some sort to make this Tiramisu dip. Cream cheese is extremely difficult to mix by hand, even when it’s soft. I was sent the Hamilton Beach Stand Mixer to try out and it did a great job of whisking this dip together in no time. There were no spots of unmixed ingredients at the bottom of the mixing bowl and it was incredibly easy to use. You can also use an electric hand mixer like the 6 Speed Soft Scrape Hand Mixer but I definitely recommend you don’t try doing this with a plain old wooden spoon or whisk. The Hamilton Beach stand mixer comes with a whisk, dough hook and flat beater, making it very versatile.

You can serve this Tiramisu with lady fingers (light and sweet sponge cakes roughly shaped like a large finger), Graham crackers, fruit, or whatever else strikes your fancy. You can also make this up a day or two ahead of when you need it, making this the perfect party food since you can chat with your guests instead of slaving in the kitchen. This Tiramisu dip was so yummyI honestly just wanted to eat the whole thing with a spoon but forced myself to walk away and save it for the kids for an after school snack. I’m one seriously awesome mom, aren’t I? If you like the traditional Tiramisu dessert, this dip recipe will be the perfect treat for you!
