Tiramisu, the classic Italian dessert, goes kid-friendly with this recipe. We skipped the coffee flavor and gave it a fresh berry spin instead. Get the kids in the kitchen and helping prep this tasty dessert!
If there’s one thing to know about Italian culture, it’s that sharing recipes and gathering in the kitchen is a must. Oh, and don’t you dare say you’re “too full” if ever visiting an Italian family’s dinner party!
Cooking is an expression of love. “To feed my home is to feed my heart,” as my mom always says.
I recommend semi-sweet chocolate shavings for flavor purposes, but feel free to pair this treat with dark chocolate. There are many health benefits to dark chocolate such as better brain functionality, it’s rich in antioxidants, and it lowers blood pressure.
