Tiramisu is my favorite dessert. HOWEVER, there is one thing that makes me nuts. I hate the dark cocoa on top. A lot. In my world, it should be topped with crushed amaretti cookies. Are you pickin' up what I am throwin' down friends? Uh huh, my fantasy and reality collided, and made ice cream. That was so cheesy.....teetering on sounding like an 80's love song.
You will notice some odd ingredients. Trust me on this one. I wanted to still have different textures, and all the "mouth feelings" of tiramisu. Now, if you want to omit the amaretti cookies, and crush a different kind of cookie on top, don't let me stop you. But don't skimp on the espresso sprinkled on top and please love this as much as I do!!
1 pkg vanilla pudding
2 1/2 tsp. espresso powder
1 cup milk
Add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until completely combined, set aside.
Then you will need:
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup coarsely crushed amaretti cookies
In the bowl of your stand mixer OR just a bowl and a hand mixer, whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks. Add in vanilla extract and whisk a couple of more seconds. Now, fold in the sweetened condensed milk. When the mixture is completely combined, add spoonfuls of the pudding mixture on top.
Carefully use your spatula to swirls the pudding mixture through the whipped cream mixture. You don't want it to mix all the way in, just swirl it.
Slowly pour mixture into a container suitable for freezing.
Take your cookie crumbs and cover the top. Sprinkle a little espresso powder on top and freeze for at least 5 hours.
