Chocolate Curls:

  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening

Directions:

1. In a saucepan, bring some water to a boil, then reducethe heat to a simmer. Have ready 2 mixing bowls that will fit over the top ofthe pan but not sink all the way in.

2. Put the egg yolks in one of the mixing bowls off heat.Add ¼ cup of the sugar and whisk until the yolks start to turn pale. Place themixing bowl over the saucepan with the simmering water. Slowly add ½ cup of theMarsala wine and whisk to combine. Cook over the simmering water until thick,using a rubber spatula to scrape the bowl, about 5 minutes. Cover with plasticwrap and refrigerate until cool.

3. Put the white chocolate in the second bowl and melt overthe pan of water. Set aside to cool.

4. Put the mascarpone in a bowl and stir until smooth. Pourin the cooled white chocolate and mix to combine.

5. Combine the cream and remaining ¼ cup sugar in a mixerand whip until not quite stiff. Add the mascarpone-white chocolate mixture andchilled egg yolk mixture to the bowl of whipped cream and fold gently. Coverwith plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

6. Put the brewed espresso, vanilla and remaining ¼ cupMarsala in a bowl or measuring cup. Arrange about a third of the ladyfingers ina single layer in a 9-by-13-inch pan. Spoon a small amount of the coffeemixture over each ladyfinger (keep it under 1 tablespoon per cookie and you’llbe fine). Plop one-third of the cold cream mixture on top and spread it into alayer. Make a layer of one-third of the halved strawberries and grate over somesemisweet chocolate. Repeat the layers 2 more times.

7. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours before serving;this allows for more moisture to soften the cookies and the whole mixture tomeld together. To serve, spoon out helpings onto individual plates. Top withChocolate curls.

Chocolate Curls:

8. Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl with the vegetableshortening and microwave until melted and hot, 30 to 45 seconds. Stir tocombine.

9. Pour the melted chocolate mixture onto the underside of aclean baking sheet and then spread it in a very thin layer with an offsetspatula or knife. Put in the freezer for a few minutes.

10. After a few minutes, check to see if it is set bypressing with your fingertip; it should leave the slightest mark but not adepression. Using a sharp-edged spatula, begin to scrape the chocolate from thebottom of the baking sheet–it will curl. Transfer the curls to a cold pan orplate and put in the freezer to harden. Store in the freezer in a ziptop baguntil needed.

Note from Ree Drummond: Tiramisu does not last beyond 24 to36 hours, as everything eventually starts to break down and become soupy.
