Tiramisu Semifreddo Recipe | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

A semifreddo is semifrozen dessert, and can typically include ice-cream cakes, and semifrozen custards. When entertaining at home, a semifreddo is a fantastic dessert option because you can make it even a couple of days before, and then just slice, garnish, and serve when needed. This dessert is creamy smooth with the addition of mascarpone cheese and whipped cream, though the coffee dipped sponge cookies add some needed texture. Include the flavor combination of chocolate and coffee, and how could you possibly go wrong?
