Mini Oreo Tiramisus with Kahlua

by on August 27, 2008 · 6 comments

I was having so much fun with Rita’s Oreomisu that I decided to try another version – specifically, one with coffee. After all, tiramisu means something like “pick me up” and while sugar might do it for a little while, I think it needs some caffeine.

So here’s version 2.0.(Adapted from Clumbsy Cookie)

Mini Oreo Tiramisu

Mini Oreo Tiramisus with Kahlua

12 Oreos
3 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
1/2 teaspoon Kahlua
About 1/3 cup brewed black coffee
Whipped cream and strawberries

1. Break apart the Oreos and scrape the filling into a little bowl.
2. Add mascarpone to bowl with filling and stir until thoroughly combined.
3. Stir in the Kahlua. Taste for sweetness. Feel free to add more Kahlua.
4. Crush 2 of the Oreo halves into crumbs. Set them aside.
5. Assemble towers. Working one Oreo half at a time, quickly dip each Oreo half into coffee and spread with a heaping ½ teaspoon of filling. Stack so that you have 5 Oreos layered with 5 layers of filling mix (end with filling mix). Do this twice to make two towers.
6. Dollop a couple of tablespoon of whipped cream on each of two plates. Set one tower in the center of each whipped cream topped plate. Sprinkle crushed Oreos on top layer of tower.
7. Chill for a few hours to soften (if needed)
8. Surround with strawberries

Makes 2

Great Anna! I loved that you used Kahlua! I must try your version now, it is more tiramisuy with the coffee! It’s passed 12am in Portugal and I’m out of Oreos, otherwise I would make now. You made me crave it you evil woman! ;)

Have you seen the latest creation from oreos?
They have banana flavored oreos? I always want to try the new products…but why mess with the original!!
Oreos….Kahlua….oh gosh….do you think they would look at me goofy at the grocery story if I went in and bought just those products? For fun I would add a box of tampons and midol….and just laugh!!!

I double dare you to do this!!
