Valentine’s Day gives the perfect excuse to dive into dessert decadence. Like a cake-cream-coffee-chocolate combination? Go ahead, fall in love with tiramisu.
Tiramisu for Two
Lunds and Byerly’s has a terrific tiramisu treat. Rich coffee-infused sugary Italian cake and cream flavor comes with all the trimmings, ready to go. Tiramisu for two has a catchy name that suggests this is a dessert to share with your sweetheart. In reality, Tiramisu for Two easily becomes a big splurge for one.
Like clockwork, come every February, Tiramisu for Two appears in Lunds and Byerly’s stores. Off to the nearest market I go, to buy a few for two.
Lovely Layers of Lusciousness
Piped swirls of whipped mascarpone cheese filling surrounds moist buttery sponge cake. Coffee liqueur adds a depth of European sophistication to this thick as butter, creamy-rich dessert. A dusting of espresso-dark powdery cocoa adds contrasting flavors of chocolaty goodness. A ladyfinger cookie garnish, half enrobed in dark chocolate, looks like a fancy made-edible version of a wooden spoon, the kind that comes with a frozen malt cup in the summertime.
But it is winter, the dead of a long snowy, cold winter full of gray shadowy days. A bit of tiramisu sparkles like a ray of warm Italian sunshine veiling through rows of cypress trees. With or without the dreams of Italy, all 8 ounces of Lunds and Byerly’s, Tiramisu for Two are a befitting translation of the Italian translation for tiramisu, “lift me up” or “pick me up”.
Charitable Chow and Cupid Favored
Lunds and Byerly’s tiramisu is something to feel good about buying for just $6.99. Proceeds go to a charity for kids and in keeping with the Valentine’s Day holiday the cause is heart related. Children’s HeartLink helps children with congenital heart disease in underserved regions of the world.
