White Chocolate Tiramisu Recipe
Recipe Type: Dessert
This tiramisu recipe has the great combination of white chocolate and rum. You really can’t go wrong! It substitutes cream cheese in place of mascarpone, but you could experiment with that. This would be a winner any time of year but Fall or Spring come to mind. There is a recipe for nutmeg whip cream, which will highlight the dessert for sure. It makes 4 servings.
