 Ingredients List

  • 16 oz. mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tbsp. amaretto
  • 1 1/3 cup brewed espresso (you may have some leftover)
  • 24 lady fingers
  • 1 cup finely chopped dark chocolate


In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk together mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, and sugar. Whisk on high speed until soft peaks form. Then add in the amaretto and whisk until just incorporated. Do not over-mix or you”™ll get stiff peaks!
Line the bottom of a 8×8”³ baking pan with lady fingers. You might have to break some to get it to fit correctly. Pour 1/2 cup of brewed espresso on top of the lady fingers and let them soak it all in. You can pour more if it looks like they”™re too dry. Don”™t over-soak them or you”™ll end up with a soggy bottom!
Spread half of the mascarpone mixture on top of the lady fingers and sprinkle 1/2 of the chocolate on top. Take the remaining lady fingers and dip them in the remaining espresso. Layer the dipped lady fingers on top of the mascarpone layer then layer again with the remaining mascarpone layer and sprinkle the remaining chopped chocolate on top.
Chill in the fridge for 4-6 hours before serving.
Tightly wrap with plastic wrap and keep in fridge for up to 4 days.
