Wifeys, it's that time of year again where we deep clean our houses and our minds and remember to leave the door open for Elijah - it's Passover. Oh, and did I mention we drink four (plus) cups of wine.
A dear friend of mine, Sayli, is a fabulous personal chef and introduced me to a dessert you won't want to "Pass-over", Matzah Tiramisu.
Tiramisu is both my dad's and my husband's favorite sweet treat. I'm also fond of it and have memories of myself at my first job, an Italian restaurant where I used to sneak into the fridge and steal spoons full of this decadent treat. I was also straight up squirting cannoli filling into my mouth. Sorry to any past customers of mine - I couldn't resist.
Back to the Passover treats. Sayli came over this weekend and showed me exactly how easy it was to whip up a Kosher for Passover Tiramisu. It took less than 30 minutes to stack the goodness together and as soon as I bit into it - dead. This sh*t was so good. It almost makes you forget how constipated you'll be after the holiday from consuming endless quantities of Matzah.
So, are you ready to make this Mouthwatering Matzah Tiramisu? Hell yeah you are girl. Let's get it.
What You'll Need:
1 large plate big enough to fit a piece of Matzah
1 large freezer safe dish
small sauce pan or double boiler to melt the chocolate
First, whip the coconut cream with cocoa and sugar until it's light and fluffy. Then refrigerate.
Second, begin to slowly melt the chocolate.
Three, pour a little bit of coffee onto the plate and soak the matzah on both sides.
Four, assemble! Soak the first piece of matzah into the coffee then place on your freezer safe dish, spread some chocolate on top of the matzah and then generously spread the coconut cream. Repeat until you've used the entire box of matzah.
Finally, freeze the entire tiramisu for 1 hour. Before serving take the Mouthwatering Matzah Tiramisu out of the freezer and let it warm up a bit before serving. It makes cutting it easier.
Sayli is an NYC-based chef and one of my homegirls. She knows more about every cuisine than I could ever imagine. I'm so happy she's sweetening up my Passover with this dessert. To drool over her food follow her on Instagram at @xoxosayli.
