  • 12 savoiardi cookies (lady fingers) (crushed)
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons mascarpone (remove 30 minutes from the fridge before using)
  • 1 tablespoon cream (whole or whipping)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons strong coffee


  • 3 ounces dark chocolate (good quality)
  • 3 ounces milk chocolate (good quality)
  • cocoa for sprinkling
  • chocolate curls for decorating



  • In a food processor add the Savoiardi Cookies and the sugar and pulse until completely crushed, then add the mascarpone and the cream, combine. Then add the coffee a little at a time and combine (start with 1 tablespoon if the dough sticks then leave at that).  The dough will be thick. 
  • Place the dough in a glass bowl, cover with plastic and refrigerate 3-4 hours.
  • Remove from the fridge and roll the dough into golf ball size balls (or slightly smaller if desired).  Freeze for approximately 15-20 minutes.
  • While they are in the freezer, melt the chocolate, place half the chocolate in a bowl over a pot of boiling water, stir until melted, remove from heat then add the remaining chocolate stirring until smooth, let cool slightly.
  • Remove from the freezer, place a toothpick in every ball and dip into the melted chocolate, place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet with the toothpick still attached. 
  • While the chocolate is still wet, add chocolate curls.  Let harden.  Then dust with cocoa.  Enjoy!
  • **my house is quite cool so they became firm without the need of refrigeration.
