This pie was created after working with Wisconsin mascarpone in a variety of fashions including simply blending equal parts of mascarpone and chocolate. I took it one step further and created a crispy crust of fresh chopped pretzels, a little bit of butter and some brown sugar for sweetness. It’s a nice dessert to have ready in a few minutes and that all it takes to make this delicious creamy dessert. You need about 6 minutes to cook the crust to set it and then about 5-8 minutes to blend the chocolate that you melted into the fresh mascarpone cheese. It really is that simple and your guests will think you went to great lengths; going to a bakery to purchase the pie or that you spent a lot of time in the kitchen creating this masterpiece.
-OHHHH SCOTT, I CANT WAIT TO MAKE THIS, I AM SALIVATING AS I WRITE THIS. I AM GOING TO TRY IT WITH CHAMBORD, RASBERRY N CHOC, OH YAH, AS FOR THE MASCARPONE CHEESE, EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND IT IN YOUR BIGGER CHAIN GROCERY STORES IN THE SPECIALTY CHEESE SECTION, USUALLY LOCATED IN THE DELI DEPARTMENT. WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT IS WITH THE CHAMBORD
-Definite Blue Ribbon worthy! I made this today, after I made my own mascarpone cheese…. ($6 for 8 oz in our local market! EEEK) But so worth the effort to make it myself for this lovely dessert! I just may make again for Easter Sunday brunch at Church!! Thank you so very much for sharing!!
-I am diabetic which rules out chocolate chips. In some recipes I have found you can play with sugar free pudding mix and you still get a very good option. Not as good probably but still good. Sugar free cocoa mix is very handy too.the cheese with 1/2 brown sugar—1/2 Splenda always works too. Sounds very good and will make soon! Thx Scott
