White Chocolate-Strawberry Tiramisu Recipe

Here's a twist on a classic dessert that highlights another flavor combo my husband and I love: strawberries and white chocolate. Lighten it up if you'd like—I've had good luck with light nondairy whipped topping and reduced-fat cream cheese. —Anna Ginsberg, Austin, TX
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:15 servings


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) mascarpone cheese
  • 9 ounces white baking chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) ladyfingers, split
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 4 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • Chocolate syrup, optional


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form. In another bowl, beat cheeses until light and fluffy. Beat in cooled chocolate, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Fold in 2 cups of the whipped cream.
  • 2. Brush half of the ladyfingers with half of the orange juice; arrange in a 13x9-in. dish. Spread with 2 cups cream cheese mixture; top with half of the strawberries. Brush remaining ladyfingers with remaining orange juice; arrange over berries.
  • 3. Gently stir remaining confectioners' sugar into remaining cream cheese mixture; fold in remaining whipped cream. Spread over ladyfingers. Top with remaining strawberries. Refrigerate until serving. If desired, drizzle with chocolate syrup before serving. Yield: 15 servings.

"I made this for my son's birthday dinner and it was wonderful. His wife and daughter both asked for the recipe. Making it several hours ahead helps it firm up. It definitely needs the chocolate drizzle on top."

"I plan on making this at my family reunion for a dessert contest. I do have one question. As far as I'm understanding; in your dish you put in cheese mix then ladyfingers & strawberries then the rest of the cheese mix then rest of the ladyfingers & strawberries. Or do you put all ladyfingers & strawberries in the center?

To me it makes sense to just mix the cheese mix all at one time instead dividing it like someone else said. Does anyone know if it makes a difference?"

"This is a great recipe! Easy to put together and just the right amount of sweetness. I may add blueberries to the layers for the 4th of July."

"I made this recipe for a friends birthday cake. I was very simple to make for a basic baker like myself. It definitely looked and tasted like it came from a store. My girlfriends LOVE it. I also added some crushed strawberries to the icing top layer to make a strawberry cream... that was spectacular... must try that!!!!! I didn't have a problem with the cream being too soft. After refrigerated for a day it stiffened well."

"2 cups heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks should give you about 4 cups whipped cream.

The first bullets says to Fold in 2 cups whipped cream. - that should leave with about 2 more cups of whipped cream to fold into the final step."

"In response to sstetzel's reply...there is no "remaining" whipped cream.  In the 1st bullet section of directions it says to fold in the 2 cups whipped cream and that's all the recipe calls for.  Here's what I did...  I did what it says in 1st bullet of directions, using the 1/2 cup conf. sugar plus a bit more (maybe tablespoon).  I deleted 1st sentence in 3rd bullet of directions and spread the remaining cream/cream cheese mixture on top of lady fingers and finished off with reminaining strawberries, added chocolate syrup drizzle...  Yum!"

"You're also adding the remaining unsweetened whipped cream to the mixture, that would tone the sweetness down."

Reviewed Jun. 15, 2011

"There is a problem with this recipe. Had to read it several times. It shows using the whipping cream in the very beginning of the recipe and then in the 3 bullet of directions shows using "remaining" whipping cream. It also says to mix the remaining cream cheese mixture with confectioner's sugar when you have already put confectioner's sugar in it. Some of the cream mixture was already used so you would have less of the mixture and be adding more sugar to it???? Wouldn't that make it extra sweet?? I'm trying it with just the mixing entire ingredient list with instructions in 1st bullet and using that as my "cream" filling. Will respond as to what happens..."

"Love this dessert. But I am having a problem with it getting firm enough. It makes a great triffle cake. The first time I added more of the mascapone cheese and thought maybe I didn't whip the whipping cream long enough. The second time I used the exact amount the recipe calls for and whipped the cream longer but still no change. Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? I really love the flavor of this dessert and don't want to give up on it. Help!!!"
