One of my all-time FAVORITE dessert recipes is this one for tiramisu. Whenever I host a large get-together you can bet that my tiramisu will be present. I recommend making this the night before to let all the flavors have a chance to settle. I find it really does taste better after spending a night in the fridge, trust me on this one.
