Tiramisu Jar Recipe
Single serving desserts don't get enough credit! These little tiramisu jars with Espresso Skinny Dipped Almonds are perfect for serving at dinner parties. There's something about a dessert in its own little jar that makes it seem a little more upscale and fancy.
Ingredients for 4 jars: 
For the sponge cake:
4 extra large eggs at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
1 cup all purpose flour
For the filling:
3 eggs (whites and yolks separated)
3/4 cup powdered sugar
8.8 oz mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp almond extract
For the assembling:
1 cup of brewed coffee
3/4 cup of crushed Dark Chocolate Espresso Skinny Dipped Almonds
Method for the sponge cake:
  1. Preheat the oven to 340 F° (170 C°).
  2. Spray a 13x9 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray, line it with parchment paper and set aside. 
  3. Place the eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk on high speed for 15 minutes. 
  4. Once very fluffy, remove the bowl from the stand mixer. Sift the flour on top a little at a time, and fold it gently with a wooden spoon.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Let it cool before flipping it on a wire rack.
Method for the mascarpone cream:
  1. With an electric mixer, whisk the egg yolks and powdered sugar until very pale and airy.
  2. Add the mascarpone cheese and whisk until incorporated.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites to form stiff peaks.
  4. Fold the egg whites very gently into the mascarpone mixture, using a silicone spatula.
Method of assembling:
      1. With a round cutter corresponding to the size of your jars, cut out 8 pieces of sponge cake.
      2. Quickly dip each piece of cake into the brewed coffee.
      3. Start to assemble the jars by putting one piece of cake in the bottom. Spoon in some of the mascarpone mixture, then add a spoonful of
      4. Espresso Skinny Dipped Almonds. Continue by putting a second piece of cake, some mascarpone mixture and finish with some more crushed Espresso Skinny Dipped Almonds
      5. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours before serving. Enjoy!
