Ingredients:  
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups strong hot chocolate or
3 tablespoons sugar or more to
postum, cooled

24 hard ladyfingers (Savoiardi)
2 cups mascarpone cheese, room
bittersweet chocolate shavings
temperature
and/or cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:
Directions:
Beat the egg whites in a grease-free bowl until stiff peaks form. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Add mascarpone cheese and vanilla and beat until smooth. Fold in egg whites.

In a small shallow dish, add hot chocolate or postum. Dip each ladyfinger into liquid for only 3-5 seconds. Letting the ladyfingers soak too long will cause them to fall apart or be too soggy. Place the soaked ladyfinger on the bottom of a 8"x8" baking dish, breaking them in half if necessary in order to fit the bottom.

Spread evenly 1/2 of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers. Arrange another layer of soaked ladyfingers and top with remaining mascarpone mixture. Cover tiramisu with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Before serving, sprinkle with chocolate shavings and/or powdered cocoa.

Personal Notes:
Tiramisu means "pick me up" in Italian. It is a national favorite that contains liquor and coffee. This is an alcohol- and coffee-free version that is still ultra delicious. Mascarpone is an Italian cream cheese, but it is at least 10 times creamier and richer. I have also made this using crushed berries instead of hot chocolate if you like a fruity route.
