Recipe adapted from ClintonKelly.com
1 box Chocolate Graham Crackers
3 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup Mascarpone Cheese or See Substitution Below
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 candy bars chopped or shaved for topping
1 cup Mascarpone Cheese Substitution: Cream together 6 oz. softened cream cheese, 2 Tablespoons sour cream, and 3 Tablespoons heavy cream.
Directions: If using Mascarpone cheese substitute, cream ingredients together with kitchen mixer and set aside in separate bowl. Whip 3 cups of heavy cream for about 2 minutes until peaks form. Add sugar, vanilla, and Mascarpone cheese/cheese substitute. Combine all ingredients. In a casserole dish, place a layer of graham crackers on the bottom. You may need to break a few crackers to get an even layer. Spread 1/3 of the cream mixture over first layer, and continue until you have three layers of crackers and cream mixture. Chop or shave chocolate bars with a vegetable peeler over the top of dessert to garnish. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight. Serves 8-12 depending on size of squares.
