This Chai Tiramisu is so easy and flavorful! Chai, vanilla, cream, and rum…all in an easy-to-assemble and transport dessert. You will not forget this one!

  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp light cream or half & half
  • 2 tsp Rodelle Gourmet Vanilla Extract
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 Rodelle Vanilla Bean, split and scraped
  • 2/3 cup Chai concentrate mix (ex: 3rd Street or Oregon Chai)
  • 3 tbsp dark spiced rum (ex: Captain Morgan or Meyer's)
  • 1 package soft ladyfingers, or make your own
  • 1/2 cup pistachio nuts, chopped
  1. Beat the mascarpone with 1/4 cup sugar, light cream, and Rodelle Gourmet Vanilla Extract until smooth.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream with the powdered sugar and Rodelle Vanilla bean seeds until soft peeks form. Fold into mascarpone mixture.
  3. Combine chai concentrate and rum into a shallow dish.
  4. Assemble into 8 ounce custard, pudding or dessert cups for cute single servings:
  5. Halve the ladyfingers and dip into the Chai mixture. The ladyfingers should absorb some of the Chai, but not enough that they start to fall apart.
  6. Layer soaked ladyfingers on the bottom of the dessert cup, follow with a heaping spoonful of cheese mixture.
  7. Build another layer and sprinkle chopped pistachio nuts over the top.
  8. Repeat with remaining dishes.
  9. Refrigerate for 24 hours to allow the flavors to blend and develop.
  10. To make this kid-friendly, leave out the rum! And, try our traditional Tiramisu recipe, it's a fan favorite! Love all things Italian? Try our Vanilla Bean Pizzelle recipe!
