Chocolate Mascarpone Spread
This incredibly easy spread is a light-tasting, delicious, natural option to the more commonly known chocolate hazelnut spread.


  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate (I used Hershey’s baking squares)

Optional garnish

  • confectioner’s sugar


  1. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Cool slightly.
  2. Beat the mascarpone cheese until light and fluffy, about a minute. I used my hand-held mixer.
  3. Add the chocolate and beat until thoroughly combined.
  4. Spread on whole grain toast–we like the sprouted grain Ezekiel muffins–or the bread of your choice.
  5. Enjoy!
