If you can’t get mascarpone cheese in your local grocery store, don’t worry, you can substitute it with cream cheese to get a perfect tiramisu flavor. BUying mascarpone cheese is not always a budget-friendly option, and sometimes you've got to find a similar alternative that works just fine. As a thrifty option, you can make a batch of mascarpone cheese in your kitchen by combining 8 ounces of full-fat cream cheese with 1/4 cup of heavy cream and two tablespoons of full-fat sour cream. This recipe has been known to make the best homemade mascarpone cheese. Just make sure that the cream cheese is not stone cold. Let it sit at room temperature long enough. Keep in mind that this is just a substitute, and the taste may vary slightly compared to the real mascarpone cheese. It does taste a lot like mascarpone and will not change the final taste of your dish. Remember that mascarpone cheese tends to become softer if you beat it too much and doesn’t firm up as desired even if you let it sit in the fridge. It’s important to keep that in mind if you do plan to use mascarpone cheese for this recipe. In the place of Whipped Topping, you can use heavy whipping cream with sugar for a healthy option. To make it extra firm, add a tablespoon of instant vanilla pudding. Adding instant vanilla pudding prevents the watery texture in the recipe.
You can save these tiramisu beauties in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You’ll notice how the mascarpone cheese also ages as it sits in the fridge and tastes better the next day. It is a good idea to make this dessert a day before serving. As a healthier option, you can replace the semi-sweet chocolate chips with dark chocolate with at least 70 perfect or more cocoa in it. Dark chocolate is not only tasty but healthy and wholesome for you. Dark chocolate is a good source of antioxidants that fight free radicals to some extent that cause cancer and other illnesses. Additionally, dark chocolate has iron and magnesium that help fight low energy levels.
