The dessert to die for !

1  large tub Marscapone Cheese (16 oz)

4 Egg Yolks

3 tablespoon Sugar

1/4 teaspoon finely ground Coffee

pinch Salt

1  pint Heavy Cream – whipped to soft peaks

Beat marscapone, yolks ,sugar, coffee grounds, and salt  for 5 minutes. Set aside.

Whip cream until soft peaks form. Carefully fold cream into marscapone mixture until combined.

In a bowl combine cold coffee and Rum.

Quickly dip ladyfingers in cold coffee mixture and place them side by side

six in a row on a flat serving plate .

Carefully cover lady fingers with about 1/3 of the marscapone mixture.

Place another layer of  ladyfingers, this time in the opposing direction on top . Again Cover with about 1/3 of marscapone on top, repeat with the final layer side by side, opposing direction, and top with remaining marscapone

bringing the remaining marscapone cream down the sides like frosting a cake.

Refrigerate at least 4-5 hours. (overnight is best)

Before serving , sprinkle top with cocoa powder or chocolate curls.
