I think it’s official:

I am obsessed with dessert dips.

Like, shamelessly infatuated with creamy sweets that I can dunk cookies and graham crackers in.

It’s probably due to all the creamy sweets and the cookies involved.

Just a guess.

So let’s tally all these dips up:

I started off with Cookie Dough Dip, moved on to Apple Brickle Dip with Chocolate Bits, and my last endeavor was Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip with White Chocolate Graham Crackers (yeesh, longest recipe name ever).

I love all of these dips, but if any of them had a flaw, it would probably be their common ingredient: cream cheese. And I have absolutely nothing against cream cheese – cream cheese makes some of my favorite foods possible – it’s just that, well, cream cheese has a very dominating flavor. If something has cream cheese in it, you’ll just know, because there’s no denying the trademark tart bite that comes with it.

… And that brings me to exactly why I’m so excited about this dip, because it doesn’t use cream cheese.

At all.

True to its namesake, the fluffy and creamy texture of the dip comes from classic tiramisu ingredients like mascarpone cheese and heavy cream.

Sugar is added to give the dip some sweetness, plus a dash of Kahlua for that boozy coffee taste, and then cocoa powder is sprinkled on top to finish it off.

Voilà. you now have the perfect dip for dipping lady finger cookies. This dip is also very very light and not too sweet, making it an easy crowd pleaser.

And it’s also very addicting. I should know, because this dip didn’t last very long after these photos were taken…  and I was home alone that day. By obsession is clearly still in full swing.

Even still, I can’t wait to serve this at our next get together. Hopefully our guests will save me from myself by eating it all before I can, because this tiramisu dip has to be my favorite dessert dip yet!

    • I think dessert recipes are worth the hype, but I’m probably a little biased 😀 If you try this one, I hope you like it!

  1. Such an amazingly good looking dip! I can only imagine how delicious it tastes!

  2. Ok, not only does this sound amazing, but it will possibly satisfy my son’s endless nagging to make Tiramisu! 😉 I can’t wait to try it.

  3. Wow this looks seriously awesome! Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts, what a quick and easy variation on that Italian favorite, thanks for sharing!

  4. I love Tiramisu this looks delicious! Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  5. Ohhhhh myyyy gosh. I am pinning this immediately and making it for my next party..I can’t believe the ingredients list is so short (that is always promising to me). This looks fabulous – I think I may have to jump on your train of dessert dips. YUM. I got here from the Merry Monday link party – so great to link with you!

  6. Tiramisu is my all time favorite dessert. The only part I don’t absolutely love is the sometimes over soaked lady fingers…this dip takes that out of the equation. Love! I will definitely be trying this soon. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Hi Crisy – I don’t suppose you know whether this might freeze ok? Make ahead / Freeze / Thaw in Refrigerator?

    • Hey Carey! You “could” freeze this, but it would need to be in a quality freezer bag and the mascarpone cheese would likely lose some of it’s flavor and texture, though I haven’t tried this myself to test how big of a difference it would make.

  8. wow not ONE comment from someone who ACTUALLY made this. I guess if I wanted to be assured that this dessert does in fact look tasty I know I can count on your subscribers.
