I did not care for this. Perhaps I just don't like tiramisu. The texture of the wet lady fingers just didn't do it for me. My husband took one bite and that was it. The filling is good though. I won't make this again.
Better than restaurant tiramisu and light! One thing I did that really improved the texture was add a tub of Fat Free Cool Whip to 1/2 of the cheese mixture. I put a layer "Non-Cool Whipped" cheese mixture on top of the first layer of ladyfingers then added Cool Whip to the remaining half of the cheese mixture and topped the second layer with that.
While this was very easy to make AND very tasty, I think next time I too will add some Cool Whip, the marsacpone/cream cheese mixture lacked a "fluffy" quality that is found with most authentic tiramisu. The taste of Kahula is VERY subtle, so if you want it more pronounced I suggest adding more. Also, putting the cocoa powder in a small sieve and then tapping it works great to sprinkle it evenly over the top. This tasted MUCH better after it sat overnight. Overall, a very yummy recipe, but it needs just a little tweaking to make it perfect!
