Red, White and Blue Tiramisu <— that rhymes!

Oh you guys, you guys, you guyyyyys! THIS tiramisu – IN.SAAANE!
Sidenote: who just busted out Cypress Hill-style, singing, “Insane! Insane in the membrane!”?? I SURE DID!

By the WAY, Happy FriDAY! Look at that, rhyming again! I’m thinking, in my next lifetime I’m going to be a rapper. MC KatPet – look for me!

But, about last night. I had a total meltdown about why nobody can make ME dinner, because I’m the one making dinner for everyone else all the time, and because I was so hungry, I didn’t know what I wanted… nothing sounded good… so I attacked a bag of awesome little cheesy rice crisps and called it a night.

Okay, that’s a lie. I also had a big piece of this tiramisu. Then I went to bed, happy. Never underestimate the power of dessert.

And now that it’s fiiiiiinally summer, I believe desserts like this are absolutely appropriate.

Here’s the dealio… This isn’t an exactly waist-line-friendly tiramisu cake – even though I did try to cut out the cals just a bit with some fat free cream cheese – buuuuuut it’s the perfect dessert for 4th of July, AND we all know that holiday-calories don’t count. And the fruit on top is totally healthy. So. Take it as you will. Besides, it’s no bake! Doesn’t that count for everything?

Ugh… just hop on the treadmill for 12 hours. 😉 It’s worth it! Think about it… layers of creamy, frangelico-flavored filling, spread over espresso-soaked ladyfingers. !SWOON!

Me thinks you should find 20 minutes this weekend to make this amazingness as a trial run. Share it with friends, if you must.

Oh yeah… weekend calories don’t count either, so we’re safe.

ENJOY!

  • 1 tub (8-ounces) Mascarpone Cheese, softened
  • 2 packages (8-ounces each) Fat Free Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar , divided
  • 2 tablespoons Frangelico (you can use any other Hazelnut Liqueur)

    Delicious! I love the addition of the berries for July. I would totally skip dinner for this 🙂

  2. My husband is making dinner tonight and last night I kept telling him how bad I felt for making him make dinner. I felt like I was inconveniencing him, but I make dinner EVERY night! So, I decided that the way to get over feeling bad is having him make dinner more often so it becomes normal 🙂 I hate being hungry without dinner made.. my go-to seems to be spaghetti at that point!

  3. Oh my gosh, what a BRILLIANT idea! I never would have thought of this — I love it! This is exactly the type of thing I’d want to dive into for a 4th of July party! : )
