Ingredients

Syrup:
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup Kirsch
Ganache:
  • 12 ounces white Belgian chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
Strawberry puree:
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons Kirsch
Mascarpone cream:
  • 3/4 cup mascarpone
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh sliced strawberries
  • 20 dry ladyfingers

Directions

For the syrup: Combine the sugar, water, and Kirsch in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Let cool completely. 

For the ganache: Place the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. In a medium saucepan, heat the cream over medium until steaming; pour over the chocolate. Let sit until room temperature and cover with plastic. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill at least 4 hours. 

For the strawberry puree: Combine the strawberries, lemon, and Kirsch in a medium saucepan; cook over medium heat until it softens and has a jam-like consistency, about 5 minutes. Chill completely (can be kept in the refrigerator up to overnight). 

For the mascarpone cream: In an electric mixer, combine the mascarpone, cream, eggs, sugar, and vanilla until thickened. 

Stir the strawberry puree into the ganache. In 8 dessert cups, layer the mascarpone cream, ladyfingers dipped in syrup, strawberry ganache, dipped ladyfingers and mascarpone. Top with whole strawberries. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
