Nice idea, but....., Member NHNonni

I liked the concept of this recipe but the actual dish wasn't so great. I'm trying to cut calories where I can but I guess when it comes to some things - like tiramisu - the real deal is worth the calories. The one thing I did that may have affected the outcome was to use lady fingers instead of pound cake. This influenced my satisfaction with the dish - there wasn't enough heft to it. It was too 'soupy'. So I'll take responsibility. Also, given the quantity of chocolate in the recipe, I'm not certain that low calorie applies. All in all, for a reduced calorie version of a terrific classic dessert, it was just OK.
