  1. Mix the sugar and egg yolks in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks. In a third bowl, combine the egg yolk mixture with the mascarpone cheese. Add in the egg whites and mix to form a creamy mixture.
  2. Arrange a layer of ladyfingers in a large serving dish. Drizzle half of the liqueur or brandy and half of the espresso over the ladyfingers.
  3. Cover the ladyfingers with the mascarpone mixture from step 1 and the grated chocolate. Then dust the mixture with half of the cocoa powder.
  4. Prepare another layer of ladyfingers on top. Then drizzle them with the remaining liqueur or brandy and espresso.
  5. Refrigerate the tiramisú for at least 12 hours, then dust with the remaining cocoa just before serving.
