About 18 ladyfinger cookies (the quantity will depend on the size of the dish)
250 g mascarpone
20 cl strong coffee
150 g sugar
100 g grated dark chocolate (70%)
2 soup spoons bitter cocoa powder
4 soup spoons Amaretto liquor
Add the amaretto, stir well, and the mascarpone little by little.
Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and beat them until stiff. (Remember, it is ready when you can put the bowl upside down and the eggs don't fall).
Pour little by little the rest of the sugar, keep beating until the mixture is firm again.
Add them little by little to the other mixture.
Pour the coffee in a plate and soak the ladyfinger cookies. Place them in the bottom of a dish, they must cover it all. Pour half the cream. Cover with grated chocolate and some cocoa. Repeat the procedure. Finish with a layer of coca.
Store at least 4 hours in the fridge.
Bon appétit !!!
