Pan di Stelle Tiramisu

Here is an imitation of tiramisu made with Pan di Stelle biscuits, the famous Mulino Bianco biscuits. We could say that it’s a tiramisu for children, because the coffee is replaced by the milk, but I must say, as well, that it is much loved by adult gourmands too.
Milk is not the only difference, obviously: the biscuits are replaced by the Mulino Bianco biscuits, as previously mentioned, and there is no mascarpone either.
 This is a very delicious and easy to prepare dessert, the procedure is very similar to the traditional tiramisu, maybe that's the reason why it’s called like this.
Here's the recipe:

 1 package of Pan di Stelle biscuits (450 g15.87 oz)
 1 cup of cold milk
 Nutella chocolate 200 -300 g (7.05 – 10.58 oz)
 Whipping cream 500 ml

To decorate
Unsweetened cocoa powder as much as required (and, if you prefer, dark chocolate chips)
 Put on the heat a small saucepan with a little water and let warm up in a bain-marie the Nutella jar (photo 2), it should be smoother.
 Meanwhile, whip the cream until stiff. Put some milk in a bowl, quickly sop up the Pan di Stelle biscuits and make a biscuits layer in a glass oven dish, or of another sort. Fill in the blanks between the biscuits with small biscuits pieces (photo 3).
 Cover the biscuits layer with a thin layer of whipped cream (photo 4) and a layer of smoothened Nutella chocolate (photo 5).
 Repeat three times the same procedure (if you prefer you can make even more then this) (photo 6), complete with a layer of whipped cream and decorate as desired, simply with unsweetened cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips (photo 7)or with strips of Nutella chocolate (put the smoothened Nutella chocolate in a pastry bag with round nozzle and spread it on top).
Preferably prepare this dessert the day before and put it in the fridge, or at least prepare it 3 hours before serving.
 Bon appetit!
