  • Place half of the strawberries into the blender pitcher. Blend until smooth. Mix the remaining whole berries with the pureed strawberries in a large bowl.

  • Layer 1/3 of the angel food cake cubes in the bottom of a trifle or serving dish. Cover with 1/3 of the strawberries and blueberries and gently spoon 1/3 of the cream mixture over the fruit. Repeat the layers twice, ending with the cream mixture. Chill until ready to serve.

  • When ready to serve, run a vegetable peeler over the edge of the dark chocolate bar, letting the curls fall onto the top of the dessert.

Very pretty presentation but really lacked in flavor. The cream/cheese mixture does need some added flavor whether it be some sugar or vanilla. We had to mix the whole thing together because the cream just overpowered everything else. Will try it again sometime with some adjustments to the cream layer. Read More

This is a very refreshing twist to a classic tiramisu. I could only give it four stars because it does lack a little in flavor without the coffee liquer. I will definatly make this again. Read More

This is an excellent recipe as others have said. However I agree with other reviewers that it requires a couple of tweaks to make it truly outstanding. First of all you really should use fresh fruit not frozen. Also you need sugar and some type of flavoring both for the berry mixture and the cream mixture. Otherwise it really is quite bland. I found Grand Marnier was the perfect flavor to complement the berries much better than coffee liqueur would be. With those changes it was a hit both times I've made it so far. And it's beautiful to look at too bonus! Read More

Everyone enjoyed this recipe and it seemed to be a hit. Next time I think I'll try fresh fruit instead of frozen. Although it was good with the frozen and still not too sweet. Read More
