The use of Dutch Chocolate SweetSticks in this classic Tuscan Tiramisu recipe is an inspired improvement on the use of ladyfingers and gives the dish flavor and texture elements missing from normal Tiramisu.
Its hard to improve on a classic, but this recipe makes a good argument!

1/3 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup espresso
1/4 cup coffee liqueur
2 packages John Wm. Macy’s Dutch Chocolate SweetSticks
1 1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
16 oz. mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup shaved dark chocolate
To make syrup, combine water and sugar and bring to a boil in a small saucepan. Simmer until dissolved. Remove from heat and add espresso and coffee liqueur.
To make filling, whip the cream and sugar to soft peaks. Add vanilla and fold into softened mascarpone cheese. To assemble, place one package of SweetSticks in a single layer on the bottom of a shallow baking dish. You may break some sticks to cover the bottom. Pour half of the syrup over sticks. Top sticks with half the cheese mixture and half the chocolate shavings. Top this layer with the second box of SweetSticks, followed by the remaining syrup and filling. Smooth filling and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. When ready to serve, remove plastic and top with remaining chocolate shavings. Cut into squares to serve.
You may reduce quantity of espresso if you prefer milder coffee flavor.
