Ingredients










Cooking Instructions

1

Grease a 10-inch fluted tart pan with a removable bottom (at least 2-inches deep). Place cookies in a food processor; cover and process until fine crumbs. Melt ½ cup butter in a bowl. Add butter to cookie crumbs; process until combined. Press cookie mixture into bottom and up sides of prepared tart pan; freeze for at least 15 minutes.


2

Combine ½ cup butter and brown sugar in small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture begins to boil. Cook and whisk 1 minute longer. Remove from heat. Whisk in 1/4 cup cream until combined. Cool caramel for 15 minutes; pour over bottom of prepared crust. Freeze for 30 minutes.


3

Meanwhile, combine remaining butter, 1/2 cup cream and chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl; microwave on high for about 2 minutes, whisking every 30 seconds, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Whisk in mascarpone until smooth. Set aside.


4

Beat 3/4 cup cream in another large bowl until it begins to thicken. Add 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whipped cream into reserved chocolate mixture. Spoon into crust. Freeze for 30 minutes.


5

Beat remaining cream in a large bowl until it begins to thicken. Add remaining confectioners’ sugar and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form. Pipe whipped cream on tart. Garnish with chocolate curls. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers.


Recipe Tips:
  • Any brand of Wisconsin mascarpone cheese can be used.
  • Crush cookies by hand if you don’t have a food processor available: Place cookies in a large resealable plastic bag. Remove air from bag and tightly seal. Crush cookies with a rolling pin (a soup can works, too) until fine crumbs.  
  • When making whipped cream, chill your bowl and clean beaters before beating the heavy whipping cream; it will help your cream remain cold during whipping. 
  • To make chocolate curls, microwave a 3 to 4-inch long chocolate block or bar on 50% power just until it is warmed slightly. Use a vegetable peeler to peel curls from chocolate block. Gently lift curls from block with a toothpick. Refrigerate curls until serving.
