Ingredients

  • 12 large egg yolks
  • 1-2/3 cups sugar, divided
  • 2-3/4 cups water, divided
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 4 cartons (8 ounces each) mascarpone cheese
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coffee liqueur
  • 1/3 cup instant espresso powder
  • 70 crisp ladyfinger cookies

Directions

In a double boiler or metal bowl over simmering water, constantly whisk the egg yolks, 1-1/3 cups sugar, 1/4 cup water, rum, brandy and nutmeg until mixture reaches 160° or is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 25 minutes. Remove from the heat; gradually whisk in the cheese.
In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold into mascarpone mixture.
Place chocolate chips in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped.
In a small saucepan, bring remaining water to a boil. Stir in the coffee liqueur, espresso powder and remaining sugar until sugar is completely dissolved. Dip 14 ladyfingers into mixture; arrange in a single layer in a 5-qt. glass bowl. Spread 2 cups mascarpone mixture over ladyfingers. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons chocolate. Repeat layers four times. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Yield: 21 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was prepared with Alessi brand ladyfinger cookies.
