Ingredients

12 Vicenzovo Ladyfingers

1 cup of coffee

50 ml Rum

FOR THE MASCARPONE CHEESE CREAM:

125 g mascarpone cheese

75 g sugar

2 egg yolks

250 ml fresh cream

FOR THE CHOCOLATE CREAM:
430 g fresh cream

175 g dark chocolate

DECORATION:

100 g sugar

20 ml water

Preparation

Prepare the mascarpone cheese cream. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar, then add mascarpone cheese gradually and stir until you will obtain a quite stable cream free of lumps; whip the cream in another bowl. Combine the two mixtures and store in the refrigerator.

Prepare the chocolate cream. Heat 130 ml of cream and, as soon as it starts boiling, remove it from heat and add the previously ground dark chocolate. Stir until it melts down completely and let it cool down. Whip the remaining cream and blend all the mixtures by amalgamating gently.

Spread the creams in two baking trays covered with baking paper and form a 1-cm-thick layer.

Put them in the freezer in order to harden the creams.

Meanwhile, prepare the sugar frosting. Melt the sugar in water inside a small pot and cook it until it turns amber. Remove from heat and let it thicken a little (do not solidify completely). Take some sugar with a spoon and pour it on a sheet of baking paper by giving it the shape you prefer. Let it solidify.

Extract two squares of 5 cm per side from the two creams. Put a Vicenzovo Ladyfinger cut in half and dipped in

coffee, previously spiked with Rum, in each plate, add a square of mascarpone cheese cream, another Vicenzovo Ladyfinger and finish with a square of chocolate cream. Decorate with the sugar you prepared earlier
