I love tiramisu and black forest anything so I created this easy no bake dessert. Quick and delicious, it is a combination of tiramisu and my family’s favourite black forest trifle.
It makes a great last-minute dessert for summer BBQ’s or a potlucks, especially on those hot days or when you want the taste of homemade in an easy dessert without actually having to turn on the oven.
