"Not Too Tricky" Tiramisu

This is by far one of my FAVORITE dessert recipes and I dont even rally like Tiramisu.  But my dad found this recipe years ago and it is a family favorite.  Most tiramisu recipes are complicated to make...but this one is not bad at all.  The taste is addicting and you are guaranteed to love this recipe!!

Now, you can make this either Gluten Free or regular.  There are 2 brands I'm going to recommend for the lady fingers.

Gluten Free Lady Fingers:
Regular Lady Fingers:
So if you are Gluten Free, you can STILL enjoy this dessert and for those who can eat Gluten...Alessi is an AWESOME brand!  And Jellos Instant Devils Food Chocolate Instant Pudding is Gluten Free!  Check out their site:

Here is the recipe!  Enjoy - but I'm warning you...this is addictive!!


2 Tablespoons Instant Coffee Granules
1 1/2 cup of water
4 cups of low fat milk
2 Packages (3.8oz Each) Instant Devils Food Chocolate Instant Pudding (Yes - this is Gluten Free!!)
1 package (8 oz.) Light Soft Cream Cheese at Room Temperature
24 Lady Fingers
3/4 cup 8 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Carton (16 oz) Lite Cool Whip Topping
1/2 tsp Cocoa Powder for Garnish


Mix the coffee granules with water and microwave on high for 1 min.  Leave in microwave and proceed with recipe.  Mix the milk, pudding and cream cheese in a large mixing bowl on medium speed.  Mix until well blended.  Split the ladyfingers in half length wise.  Place half of package in trifle bowl cut side up.  Drizzle 1/4 of coffee mixture evenly over the Ladyfingers.  Spread half of the pudding mixture over the Ladyfingers.  Spread 1/4 of the whipped topping over pudding.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup of chocolate chips over the topping.  Repeat these layers 3 more times.  Sprinkle cocoa powder on top to garnish.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hrs.
