Chocolate Mascarpone Dirt Cakes

Chocolate Mascarpone Dirt Cakes recipe

This isn't your average dirt cake made with a cake mix. It's a very creamy more adult version.

Recipe Ingredients


  1. Melt chocolate in microwave in brief intervals or in double boiler. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.
  2. In bowl of electric mixer, combine heavy cream and confectioners’ sugar. Whip on low speed, increasing speed gradually to medium and high speeds, beating until stiff peaks form (do not overbeat). Transfer to another bowl; set aside.
  3. In mixer bowl, beat mascarpone until smooth. Do not overbeat. Add melted chocolate and vanilla and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. With spatula, gently fold in half the whipped cream into mascarpone chocolate mixture to combine. Fold in remaining half of whipped cream.
  5. In small serving cups or jars, place a gummy worm or 2 in bottom of each dish; leave 1 or 2 partially hanging over edges. Spoon or pipe chocolate mixture into each dish. Top with crushed chocolate wafer cookies.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
