Why Hello there... Have you been eatened?

Chocolate Mascarpone Cake (courtesy of
This dessert looks really hard to make is actually really easy... and the best part is that it's a no bake!

What you need:
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. of vanilla or 2 tbsp. of imitation vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of blackberry liquor (optional) or fresh berries (I used blue berries)
  • 2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 8 oz. container of mascarpone cheese (find at an Italian grocery store or Central Market)
  • 1 box of chocolate graham crackers

Equipment: mixer, spatula, platter or a springform pan or really whatever you have to make this in

The "How to":

  1. Combine the cream, sugar, vanilla, liquor and/or berries, cocoa powder and mascarpone cheese in a mixing bowl. Mix on medium speed until mixture becomes thick
  2. start layering the graham crackers in your pan and then the cream mixture. Alternate the layers until you reach the top
  3. Cover and place in fridge for 4-5 hours

I'll admit this one made quite the mess in the kitchen... there was a "uhm where did the sink go?" moment. Next time, I'll post a picture of Hurrican Piyusha and the deadly kitchen disasters!
