You’ll be thankful to have stumbled across these twenty-five tiramisu recipe variations! Each recipe is a unique spin on the classic tiramisu that is innovative and delicious.
I’m about to let you in on a little family secret. While our family loves cooking at home, my daughters and I have a soft spot in our hearts, and our taste buds for the potato soup AND tiramisu from Olive Garden. We are over the moon obsessed… just a bit. We’ve even been playing with modifying our own potato soup recipe to include things like spinach, red pepper, and Italian sausage to replicate their Zuppa Toscana.
In fact, we love tiramisu so much that sometimes we skip dinner and we take mini trio dates just order dessert.
Imagine in your mind, one mom and two girls sitting around a piece of tiramisu, three spoons, slowly eating. Of course, we pre-divide the piece into three quadrants drawing lines in the cocoa powder on top, so no one has to rush to get their fair share. We love to share bite after bite of that dessert goodness.
Is it weird that my kids love a coffee-based dessert so much?
I’m certain it’s quite the sight, but a memory that will forever warm my heart. I wouldn’t change those trio dates for anything.
After many years of eating tiramisu at ANY Italian restaurant we visit when traveling, the girls and I have given up on making this classic recipe at home.
What goes into making a traditional tiramisu recipe?
At its most basic, Italian tiramisu is a classic dessert made with ladyfinger cookies dipped in espresso and along with rich layers of mascarpone cheese that have been whipped with egg yolks. Sometimes Marsala wine or a liqueur is added to the coffee to booze it up, and sometimes the tiramisu is topped with grated chocolate or cocoa powder. (Mmmmm. So good.)
Why play with tiramisu recipe variations?
At our house, we just cannot seem to get the classic tiramisu recipe PERFECT, and truth be told, we’re a group of perfectionists. So instead, we’ve decided to round a tiramisu recipe variations to play with!
Plus, there are different tiramisu options that work well with each season of the year. I love the idea of fruit-based tiramisu recipes for a cool summer treat and then playing with a pumpkin tiramisu recipe in the fall to welcome autumn!
Who knew that there were so many fun tiramisu options?
Our now mini-date “outings” have been mini-date cooking classes, right in the comfort of our own home!

Why make tiramisu and other recipes WITH KIDS?
The kitchen is such an amazing place to connect with your kids, don’t miss the opportunity!
We’ve been working through dinner recipes in The Ultimate Kids’ Cookbook lately. We love this tool for teaching independence.
I’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, so I cannot wait for the companion guide The Ultimate Kids’ Baking Book to be released (11/12/19 ). You can pre-order a copy now if your kiddo is a baking fanatic too and you’re worried you’ll forget!
The Ultimate Kids’ Baking Book will make a great holiday gift for any kid who loves to bake. It is my intention to give it to my daughter as a Christmas gift, but… I have a feeling I’ll be so inspired by the Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert recipes that I won’t be able to hold out that long! We’ll see!!!
If cooking WITH KIDS is not your thing, it’s still 100% possible to have your one “mini-dates” just by simply starting some new and fresh with your family. They don’t have to be anything over the top, or expensive but just something simple that everyone can do and enjoy together.
After all, time with your family is truly a GIFT — Giving them your full presence is an act of love.
