No bake Salted dark Chocolate Mascarpone Tart

Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy reader.  Have a good one.



I managed to trim down my weight back to before Oct's scale.  I was really happy because, that extra weight really makes me sluggish and lousy.

Was craving for a cheese tart after I spent some time browsing Pinterest.  It is definitely not a good idea if you are on diet but hey, I am on celebration mode!

Went on to buy myself some cheese and tada ..... No bake Salted Dark Chocolate Mascarpone Tart.  I fell in love with this the moment I saw it.  It looks good and I was enticed.

I am also happy that I can participate this round of Bake Along as I kept missing out the dateline.  Well this always happens to procrastinator right?  



Verdict: This is a delicious pie, my family loves it to bits.  It tasted like light ice cream.  This is best eaten at home, not a pie that you will bring to a party as it melts rather quickly.

My family prefers it with salt as the orea base already has a hint of saltiness in it.

  2. Hi Edith
    I read your predicament in the Facebook page when a blogger share it out. I understand how you feel by now and I support you. I was ticked off by that "lion" too. Tsk....tsk....tsk.....I can't believe it!!! She did that to you on her blog. I think she is mean in what she is doing now.

    1. Jasline, it is light and somehow tasted like ice cream. Only setback is that it melts easily.
