Tiramisu Teacups

This was a lovely little dessert I whipped up for a weekday pudding! They are only small so you get a little taste of what you fancy, without the extra calories!
Tiramisu is one of Scott's favourite desserts so I always feel a bit of pressure when making this particular pudding! But this is a simple quick and easy version for when you have some cream left over in the fridge.
This recipe made 5 teacups!

1 Pint double cream
1 1/2 tablespoons icing sugar
1 cup of strong sweetened coffee
 lady fingers (trifle sponges)
5 teaspoons Nutella
chocolate to flake onto the top
Soak the lady fingers on a plate with the sweetened coffee.
Place 1 and a bit lady fingers in the bottom of the cup.
Layer a teaspoon of Nutella on top of the lady fingers. 
Drizzle over a litte more of the coffee mixture,
You could keep repeating these layers if you had a taller glass but you'd obviously have to adjust the ingredient quantity.
Now whip the cream with the icing sugar until it is thick but not over whipped.
Spoon over the top of the puddings.
Finally sprinkle over some chocolate gratings or shavings,
And pop in the fridge to cool!
You can see here the lady fingers soak up the moisture from the coffee mixture and become soft and tasty.
I love chocolate, so ultimately it had to make it's way into a coffee dessert!

The sizes are great when you want that little treat after your meal.
