Chocolate Mocha Tiramisu Parfaits

For a sweet treat to enjoy for your midday coffee break or after dinner, make these easy Chocolate Mocha Tiramisu Parfaits – creamy chocolate mocha mascarpone is layered with a rich mocha sauce and ladyfingers for the perfect pick-me-up!

I often joke that if I was stranded on an island, ice coffee MUST be with. I have been drinking ice coffee since I can remember. What can I say – I come from a coffee loving family.  There was no way we were going to be dealing with tour press if I couldn’t have an ice coffee at the ready.  I can deal with many rolls and punches but dealing without my ice coffee is just not a wise idea – for anyone.

Do you ever find yourself having a midday slump and want a little sweet sip to get you through the rest of the day?  For me, these fit the bill perfectly.  No matter what I’m dealing with, I can take a few minutes of “me” time and enjoy this cool and rich iced coffee.  With the single serve containers, I can be a bit greedy and refuse to share.  However, if you bring the larger size to work, I can guarantee there will be new office friends just wanting to join you for a little coffee break.

I wanted to share a sweet treat that you would love – a Chocolate Mocha Tiramisu Parfait. This parfait is so creamy and rich – with just the right amount of mocha flavor. To take it over the top, I made a to-die-for mocha syrup that you are going to want to use for everything, including adding a bit more mocha love to your Caribou Premium Chocolate Mocha Iced Coffee – trust me on this.

This easy to whip up dessert will have friends and family swooning at first bite – between the creamy mascarpone mousse, the iced coffee soaked ladyfinger cookies and the mocha drizzle – the Chocolate Mocha Tiramisu Parfaits will be a family favorite.

Ingredients

  • For the Mocha Syrup:
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 6 tablespoons of Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons of instant espresso
  • 1/8 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • For the Chocolate Mocha Tiramisu Parfaits:
  • 1 1/4 cups of Caribou Coffee Chocolate Mocha Ice Coffee, divided
  • 8 ounces of mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 3 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup of super fine sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
  • 24 ladyfinger cookies
  • 1/3 cup of mocha syrup
  • Chocolate Covered Espresso beans for garnish
  • Extra unsweetened cocoa powder for garnish

Instructions

  1. To make the Mocha Syrup:
  2. In a heavy bottom saucepan, whisk together the sugar, Dutch process cocoa powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, instant espresso and salt until everything is mixed.
  3. Add the water and whisk until everything is combined and the cocoas and sugar are dissolved.
  4. Bring to a boil over medium heat and let bubble for about 5 minutes, whisking often. If you find that it starts to bubble dangerously close to the top of the saucepan, remove from the heat and whisk until the mocha volcano recedes a bit. Put back on the heat and keep whisking.
  5. When the mixture is thicker, remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Whisk the vanilla throughout and let cool for a bit.
  6. Pour into a container and it should keep in your fridge for a few weeks (if it lasts that long)
  7. To make the Chocolate Mocha Tiramisu Parfaits:
  8. In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, mix together 1/4 cup of Caribou Coffee Chocolate Mocha Ice Coffee, the softened mascarpone cheese, unsweetened cocoa powder, super fine sugar and salt. Mix until everything comes together and it is a lovely chocolate color. Set aside.
  9. In another large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, whip the heavy cream to soft peaks.
  10. Fold the chocolate mocha mascarpone cheese mixture into the pillowy whipped cream until it is a gorgeous cappuccino shade throughout, taking care to not deflate the cream.
  11. Pour the remaining cup of Caribou Coffee Chocolate Mocha Ice Coffee into a square dish.
  12. Dip each ladyfinger cookie into the ice coffee and flip on the other side; let the coffee permeate for a minute or so.
  13. Break the cookie in half and put into a parfait dish. Repeat until you have about 5 pieces in each parfait dish.
  14. Dollop some of the chocolate mocha mascarpone cream on top of the ice coffee soaked ladyfingers and then drizzle with a bit of the chocolate mocha sauce.
  15. Repeat the process again until you have 2 layers of ice coffee soaked ladyfingers and 2 layers of cream, each accented with a drizzle of mocha syrup.
  16. Dollop the tops of each parfait with one more thin layer of chocolate mocha mascarpone cream and spread evenly with a small offset spatula so that the top of the parfait is flat.
  17. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to set up.
  18. Before serving, dust each parfait with some of the unsweetened cocoa powder and garnish with a couple chocolate espresso beans.
  19. Enjoy!
