A creamy dessert with hints of coffee and chocolate. This one is a keeper!
Put the mascarpone and sugar in a large bowl and use a mixer to blend until well whipped. It should look a lot like whipped butter. Add in the vanilla extract and blend well.
In a separate bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream to the firm peak stage.
Mix about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture and blend well. Gently fold in the remaining whipped cream. Mix the coffee and liqueur. I like to use a squeeze bottle from here. So if you’re going this route, put the mixture into a squeeze bottle.
Line the bottom of an 8″ x 8″ pan with a single layer of ladyfingers. Squeeze about half the coffee-liquor mixture on top of the ladyfingers, evenly coating the cookies with liquid.
Dollop half of the mascarpone mixture on top and smooth out with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips on top.
Arrange a final layer of ladyfingers on top and coat the cookies with the remaining coffee-liquor mixture.
Dollop the remaining mascarpone mixture on top of the ladyfingers and smooth out. Place cocoa in a small sieve and sprinkle it evenly on top. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips.
Wrap tightly and refrigerate at least 4 hours (overnight is better).
Serve cold and enjoy!
I chose to use semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate, so that the chocolate flavor would really punch through. This provided the perfect balance of chocolate to make the whole frosting completely “milk chocolate” in flavor.
