How to prepare Five spice tiramisu

To prepare the 5-spice tiramisu, start with the cream. In a bowl, pour the mascarpone, yogurt 1, room temperature coffee 2, and sweeten with sugar 3.

hazelnuts 10, Chinese spice mix 11, and Macadamia nuts 12.

Operate the blades until you have obtained a crumbly and slightly coarse mixture 13. Then arrange the glasses and move on to the composition. Squeeze a little cream onto the bottom of the glass 14, then dip the ladyfingers broken into 2 or 3 parts for a few moments 15.

Place them in the glass 16 until you create a layer on which to add more cream 17. In total, use 2 ladyfingers per glass. Finally, garnish the top with a spoonful of crumble 18

and some chocolate shavings scraped directly from the chocolate block with the help of a blade 19. Then arrange them on the surface of each glass 20 and your 5-spice tiramisu is ready to be enjoyed 21.
