Tiramisu parfaits for Meredith and Paolo


a sheet of yellow cake- i used one box of yellow cake mix, and baked it on a baking sheet- use lots of baking spray to make sure it will be easily removed- it will cook in about 10 minutes.

Cream filling:1 cup of heavy cream

1 cup of heavy cream

half a block of cream cheese

1/2 cup of powdered sugar- mix thoroughly either with a stand mixer, or by hand

Coffee syrup

1 cup of extra strong coffee

1/2 cup of sugar- combine and boil until the coffee is reduced by about half.


1 cup of heavy cream

1 cup of dark chocolate chips- combine in microwave and  heat in 30 second intervals stirring until it is silky and smooth

Now, using the screw on lid of your jars cut circles from the cake- once they are in the jar- use a brush to soak with the coffee syrup(do Not do this before- you will end up with a handful of syrupy cake.  this is not altogether a bad place to be, but not what we are aiming for here…  Layer, cake,syrup, cream filling, ganache.  End with cake and sprinkle cocoa powder.  Now- screw your lids on. these can easily park in the chill chest for up to two days.
