Tiramisu Toffee Torte Recipe
Tiramisu is Italian for "pick-me-up," and this treat truly lives up to its name. It's worth every bit of effort to see my husband's eyes light up when I put a piece of this delicious torte in front of him. —Donna Gonda, North Canton, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:12-14 servings
