R.I.P CHOCOLATE MASCARPONE MOUSSE

Today is National Chocolate Day. With Halloween just days away, I thought it would be fun to combine a scary refreshment with a cocoa flavored confection.

R.I.P MASCARPONE MOUSSE


MOUSSE

4 ounces semisweet baking chocolate
4 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, divided use
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules, dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups cream

Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave until chocolate melts, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of confectioners sugar and the mascarpone. Whisk the warm coffee into the mascarpone mixture, stirring until fully combined. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whip the cream with the remaining confectioners sugar to stiff peaks. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.
Spoon the mousse into 6 dishes.

ASSEMBLING THE DESSERTS

Microwave 1/4 cup chocolate chips until melted, and transfer to a resealable plastic bag. Snip a very small amount off a corner and squeeze bag to write R.I.P onto 6 Milano cookies.
Stand 1 cookie into each dish of mousse, crush 1 cookie and sprinkle on top of mousse, around the "tombstone".
Enjoy!
