  1. Combine espresso and butter in the top of a double boiler over simmering water.

  3. Combine Marsala, egg yolks, and sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisking constantly until frothy and thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  4. Stir mascarpone cheese into marsala mixture.

  5. Combine chocolate mixture with mascarpone mixture. Cool to room temperature.

  6. Whip heavy cream in a bowl until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes.

  7. Fold half of whipped cream into cooled chocolate mixture.

  8. Fold second half of whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Recipe Note

Tiramisu translates to pick-me-up. Considering that this popular Italian dessert is spiked with proven mood-elevators such as coffee, cocoa, sugar, and alcohol, the name seems to fit perfectly.
