We Love the Dessert Italiano Tiramisu Cups at Costco

The Costco tiramisu cups, from Dessert Italiano, are a delightful dessert featuring coffee soaked sponge cake, sweet marsala wine, creamy mascarpone cream and cocoa powder.  The tiramisu comes in a six pack and are filled into glass cups that are delightful and fun to reuse.

These desserts need to be refrigerated and will last about a month if you do not eat them all in one day 🙂

Taste Test!

The folks at Dessert Italiano did a great job of balancing out all of the different flavors happening in these little cups.

The tiramisu is sweet, but not as sticky sweet as one might expect from a dessert whose primary ingredient is glucose syrup.  The mascarpone cream and cocoa are a delightful combination and the coffee soaked sponge cake gives the dish a nice change in texture.  You get a hint of the sweet marsala wine followed by the pleasant bitterness of the coffee.

Ready to Eat Tiramisu

How the dessert tastes is also influenced by how you eat it.

If you just stick your spoon in and grab a bite then you will get a big slug of cocoa powder in your first bite that will dominate the flavor profile.  If you use your spoon to mix everything up first then you will get a more balanced flavor profile.

Some folks might be upset that tis dessert uses sponge cake instead of the traditional lady fingers but I feel like it is an acceptable substitution.

The Reusable Glass Cups are Adorable!

One of the things people love about these deserts is that the glass cups they come in can be recycled and put to use in creative fashions.  If you want to get some ideas on what you can do with these cups then here is an article from Hunker and here is a fun Reddit thread.

My daughter has a neat trick that is more of a “hack” than a reuse.

After my daughter finishes the tiramisu she places the glass cup under our Keurig and makes a small cup of coffee.  The hot coffee dissolves/dislodges the last of the dessert which in turn adds a delicious sweet and chocolate note to the coffee.

Costco Value

I bought the six pack of the tiramisu at Costco for $9.59 which works out to a cost of $1.59 per dessert cup.

The only other place I have seen these for sale is at Gourmet Kitchen where they are priced at $22.98 for the six pack which works out to $3.83 per cup.

Obviously it makes more sense to buy these at Costco where they cost half as much!

I think the real value is that I was able to serve an elegant and delicious dessert to my family for $1.59 per serving and little to no effort on my behalf.
