Chocolate Berry Mascarpone Tart


Oh yes, you done heard right.  Mix it all together, and what do you have?  A fat slice of chilled mascarpone cream with a cookies and cream crust, studded with lots of fat and gorgeous berries (and pssst, go crazy with the ganache drizzle)!


Chocolate Berry Mascarpone Tart
Prep time

Total time



  • 25 crushed oreo cookies
  • ½ stick melted butter
  • 8 oz room temperature mascarpone cheese
  • 1 ts vanilla extract
  • ¼ c agave
  • 8 oz heavy cream
  • 3 tb powdered sugar
  • 2 ts almond extract (or vanilla)
  • Lemon zest
  • Berries
  • Optional: melted chocolate or ganache

  1. Combine your cookie crumbs with your butter and press down into your pie/tart pan.
  2. Spoon your softened, room temperature cheese into a bowl and beat it with your vanilla and agave. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whip up your cream, sugar, extract, and lemon until it reaches stiff peaks. Using a whisk attachment and building up your speed helps. Additionally, whipping it up when it’s cold is easier.
  4. Fold in your whipped cream to your cheese mixture. Dollop this mixture into your prepared crust.
  5. Dot with lots of fresh berries on top and drizzle with chocolate. Chill for at least 4-6 hours before serving.

I envision that this might be a fabulous addition to a mid-week meal…something bright and summery to look forward to perk you right up on, let’s say, a Wednesday.  Wednesdays are funny because you’re so close to the weekend, you can almost taste it but yet, you can’t celebrate it just yet *face palm*  You quickly realize you’ve got two more freaking days left.

Make this tonight, pop it into the fridge and your belly may want to write me a thank you card tomorrow.

So, grab a glass of red and dig in, my friend!  To hell with Wednesdays!


Your weekend enthusiast friend,

The Squishy Monster
