Boy, what'll the gang say when you tell 'em you're having tiramisu in trifle-form? This Tiramisu Trifle looks so company-fancy, but only you will know how easy it really was. What a fun way to enjoy this delicious Italian dessert!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) frozen pound cake, thawed
  • 1 (8 ounce) container mascarpone cheese (see Note)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee, chilled (see Note)
  • 6 (1.4 ounce) chocolate-covered toffee candy bars, crushed

What to Do

  1. Cut pound cake into 1-inch cubes.
  2. Beat mascarpone cheese at medium speed of an electric beater until creamy; gradually add powdered sugar, and beat until smooth. Stir in 1 cup whipped topping.
  3. Place 1/3 of cake cubes in a 2-quart trifle bowl. Pour 1/3 cup coffee over cubes. Top with 1/3 of cheese mixture and 1/4 of candy bars. Repeat layers twice. Spread top later with remaining 2 cups whipped topping and remaining crushed candy bars. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.


  • Mascarpone cheese is a soft and fresh triple cream dessert cheese with a fluffy texture. Stir up a strong cup of coffee by spooning 1 tablespoon of instant coffee granules into an 8 ounce cup of hot water; mix and then chill.

Trifles are probably one of my favorite desserts to make...mostly because in a trifle everything seems to be equally distributed, so no matter how big the bite is you won't miss any of that deliciousness. Plus there are so many different flavors and textures you can create in a trifle. I've tried making a savory trifle once with meatloaf, sauteed mushrooms, mashed potatoes (with peel), and some brown gravy...it was so good! I never realized there was toffee in tiramisu and I know usually ladyfingers are used...but, does the pound cake hold up to the moisture of the coffee?

Hi there! The pound cake holds up really well in this trifle, and you can always use less coffee if need be. Enjoy!
