4 egg yolks
¾ cup (150 grams) granulated sugar
1 pound mascarpone
8 ladyfingers
2 shots espresso
8 ounces Marsala wine
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar

Beat the eggs and sugar until firm. Add the mascarpone and continue whipping until thickened. Combine the espresso and the Marsala in a small bowl. Dip the ladyfingers into the liquid mixture. Place the moistened ladyfingers in the bottom of a glass dish and top with the mascarpone mixture. Decorate with cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Chill and serve.
