This post was created through a partnership with Goodie Girl Cookies.


Both my husband and I love food and trying new restaurants. When we were still in the get to know you phase of dating, we would take turns picking restaurants neither of us had ever been to. This was before I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, so we had tons of options.

One of the first places we went to was an Italian place, it was small and had some nice tables outside. We had high hopes for the place, but the food was just okay, however the Tiramisu dessert we split was delicious! This was not the Tiramisu you buy at Publix that is super sweet, but had those bitter notes laced with sweetness that you would expect from a dessert that had been soaked in super strong espresso.

I actually haven’t had Tiramisu in 4 years, not since I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. When I received the new Vanilla Slims Cookies from Goodie Girl, I had a great idea.

One of the best parts of being a gluten free blogger is getting to try out new products. When I received the new Goodie Girl Vanilla Slims I was in cookie heaven- crispy vanilla cookies dipped in chocolate. They are to die for. The best part of Goodie Girl cookies is that you would never know they are gluten free. They have lots of different flavors (read my first review here!) and several of them are now available at Publix (Get your dollar off coupon!).  These Vanilla slims are currently only available online, but , but if you place an order online you also get 6 free packs of their mint slim go packs (perfect for lunches!).

I miss Tiramisu. I love the strong flavor of the espresso and the creaminess of the mascarpone cheese. These gluten free chocolate truffles have all the flavors of Tiramisu, but are really easy to make! Plus, they are perfect for any holiday parties you may have coming up!

Recipe Notes

Mascarpone Cheese- Traditional Tiramisu uses mascarpone cheese, but if you have trouble finding it, you can use cream cheese instead.

Espresso Powder- Instant espresso powder is the secret to infusing the coffee flavor, without creating a runny mess.

Dark Chocolate- Feel free to use semi-sweet chocolate if the dark chocolate is to strong.

    I love recipes like this with so few ingredients. I really need to test good alternatives for mascarpone to make great desserts like this dairy-free!

    Yesssss! I love tiramisu too! I agree, though, the Publix version is just too sweet for me. I looked at their ingredients and they use cream cheese instead of marscapone so, to me, it really makes a difference. I love your idea about making these into a truffle. Genius! I gotta try these out. I’m not gluten-free so I might just use vanilla wafers or amaretti cookies. Thanks for sharing!
