Tiramisu Twists

Try these twists once and you'll never go back to normal tiramisu again! This take on the classic Italian dessert is a perfect addition to your family's breakfast or afternoon snack. Once again, few ingredients and simple steps make for the perfect sweet tooth recipe.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams Mascarpone
  • 2 tablespoons Kahlua, plus extra for glaze
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 sheet all-butter puff pastry
  • 30 grams dark chocolate, divided

Steps

  1. In a small mixing bowl, beat the mascarpone until soft. Add the Kahlua and, once completely mixed through, beat in the sugar. Lay the puff pastry sheet out with a short edge towards you. Spread the tiramisu filling evenly over the sheet.
  2. Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut the pastry into 8 long vertical strips. Grate 20 grams of dark chocolate over the filling. Working with one torsade at a time, take hold of the end furthest from you and fold it down, in half, on top of itself. Transfer to a nonstick or lined baking sheet, twisting it around twice as you lay it down. Gently press the bottom edge closed, then repeat with the rest and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C / 180C fan. After the pastries have chilled for one hour, lightly brush them with Kahlua and grate over a fine dusting of the remaining chocolate. Bake for 15 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, or serve warm.
