Tiramisu Brownies

As a K-cup brand ambassador I received a recipe from Keurig/Green Mountain Coffee for Tiramisu Brownies. I love Tiramisu! It is one of my favorite deserts and every time I go to an Italian restaurant I have to order it. These brownies are absolutely delicious and taste like the real deal without the custard. If you are a tiramisu fan, this is the recipe for you! I personally enjoyed these brownies with a cup of Italian Roast coffee from Brista Prima Coffeehouse. It made me feel like I was back in Italy!

 Ingredients:

  • 12 oz chocolate chips (dark chocolate is great with this recipe)
  • 1 c butter, softened
  • 1 c sugar
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 c cake flour
  • coffee extract to taste
  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 package soft ladyfingers
  • 1 c of Barista Prima Italian Roast (or a strong coffee)
  • 2 T Dark Rum
  • Optional: Mint extract, nuts, Raspberry preserves.

Directions:

In a large bowl, melt the chocolate.  Stir until smooth and leave it to cool.  Heat the oven to 350.  Line a 13″ x 9″ baking pan with parchment paper.  Add chocolate to a mixing bowl with paddle attachment on.  Beat in the butter followed by 1 cup of sugar and the 4 eggs and 4 egg whites.  Add the coffee extract, then the flour.  Mix on low until just combined.  Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, reserving 1 cup of batter for the top.

Lay the lady fingers upside down on top of the batter and push down slightly.  Combine the hot coffee and dark rum. Using a pastry brush, carefully brush the Barista Prima Coffee and rum mixture over the lady fingers until they are saturated.

In another bowl, combine the mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, 1/4 c sugar, 4 egg whites and vanilla extract.  Spread the topping over the ladyfingers.  Place dollops of brownie batter on top and swirl lightly with a toothpick or knife.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until center is almost set and brownies begin to pull away from sides of the pan.  Cool completely in the pan before slicing.

K-Cup Favorites

My Keurig is part of my daily lifestyle. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is turn it on so it can warm up while I’m getting ready for my day. Most people think it’s just a standard coffee maker but it really is so much more than that! It’s become my personal beverage maker. I make everything from coffee, tea, hot chocolate, apple cider, and even iced beverages. Below are my current K-Cup favorites, what is your favorite?

Wild Mountain Blueberry Coffee: not too strong and has the perfect balance of coffee and blueberry flavors. Drinking this coffee reminds me that spring isn’t too far away.

Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa: With only 70 calories per cup, this hot chocolate satisfies my chocolate cravings. I like to add mini marshmallows on top!

Hot Apple Cider: This is J’s favorite. Since he’s not much of a chocolate person this apple cider is his go to when he wants something sweet. Add some rum to make it a spiked apple cider. YUM!

Blood Orange Star Fruit Green Tea: This sweet and tangy tea is part of the Wellness Brewed Collection. It has 20% of your daily antioxidant vitamin C per cup.

New Keurig Treats!

I am so happy to be a K-Cup ambassador again! I love trying all of their new products and sharing them with you. Besides, how are you supposed to know what’s good out there unless I tell you!?

I first received Donut Shop Coffee Sweet & Creamy iced coffee. I am obsessed with this! Not only is it delicious, you don’t need to add cream or sugar. Simply brew in your Keurig over ice and you’re ready to go.

Both the regular and nutty hazelnut are delish!

 Summers are short here in Chicago but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to make the most of it. I received a shipment of Green Mountain Coffee’s Wild Mountain Blueberry flavored coffee. Sipping on this delightful treat reminds me to savor the summer, with a hint of blueberry this is my new favorite coffee to drink in the morning.   I walk to work every morning, sipping on my coffee in my spill proof travel mug as I listen to my favorite jams. This always puts me in a good mood, especially on Monday.

Things to do this weekend

1. Get 10% off ALL Keurig products with the promo code LUCKY1-8153

2. Subscribe to Club W: as I am sipping on a glass of California Chardonnay I can’t help but think how awesome this wine club is. I get 3 bottles of wine every month and I can either pick my selection or have it picked for me. If I want to skip a month or two I have the flexibility to do so. With that saying, I regretted it that last time I skipped a month. I never have to go to the store to pick up a bottle of wine last minute or worry about what to bring to a party.

3. Take a bikram yoga class at Bikram Yoga Andersonville. As most of you know I love barre burn and my co-workers rave about bikram yoga. Fitness expert and Bikram yoga instructor, Jessica Rask, says that Bikram yoga can put you on the fast-track to bikini body bliss. “Because Bikram is done in a 105-degree room with approximately 40% humidity, you sweat a great deal more than you would with other exercises, allowing the body to detoxify on a cellular level, ensuring all of your organs are working in optimal condition” she says.  “Over time Bikram yoga can really help take inches off your waist, hips and thighs, while building muscle tone all over.”

4. Animate your photos with the Cinemagram app. I’m addicted. How cool are my flowers blowing in the wind? 

 Have a great weekend!
