Kid-friendly and delicious, this malted milk tiramisu is a taste of Italy—without the 'boozy' finish.


  • 6 tbsp malted milk powder, divided

  • 5 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, divided

  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar, divided

  • 1 cup 35% cream

  • 275-g tub mascarpone

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 24 ladyfinger biscuits

  • 1/2 cup Maltesers, coarsely chopped (optional)


  • Beat cream in a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high, about 3 min, until soft peaks form. Beat in mascarpone, vanilla, remaining 2 tbsp each malted milk powder and sugar, and 1 tbsp cocoa powder until combined.

Kitchen tip

To avoid overlap, break ladyfinger cookies into pieces to create a single layer. They will soften as they set.
