Made with a mixture of whipped egg yolks, mascarpone, sugar, cocoa, and lady fingers dipped in coffee, this specialty graces the dessert menu of practically every Italian restaurant or trattoria. If you like chocolate mousse and coffee, you’ll be a fan of the texture and indulgent flavor of this classic dessert. Origin: Treviso in Veneto
