NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE MASCARPONE TART. Oreo cookie crust with a melt-in-your-mouth mascarpone cream filling and topped with salted chocolate ganache.With the temperature cooling down this past week, I was worried that the summer weather was over. But, I’m glad the heat is back because summer is so short here in Ontario, and as hot and humid as it can get at times, I always try to make the best of it and not complain. And hey, what better time to put together a no-bake recipe, right?

NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE MASCARPONE TART. Oreo cookie crust with a melt-in-your-mouth mascarpone cream filling and topped with salted chocolate ganache.We were having company over and I decided to splurge and make something with mascarpone. As much as I love mascarpone, I don’t cook with it very often because I find it quite expensive. Although, I’ve read online that you can make your own for only $2 compared to $8 from the supermarket.  If you’re interested, check out the how-to from Pastry Affair. It seems pretty easy. You can also substitute the mascarpone with cream cheese in this recipe.

The whipped cream mascarpone is light and creamy, paired with the smooth dark chocolate ganache, and topped with a little sprinkle of sea salt to enhances all the flavors as everything just melts-in-your-mouth.

  2. Hello,

    I am not familiar with desserts so.. this will be my first one. I want to try this tomorrow but I have two questions;

    Is it 1 tablespoon vanilla – extract or..?
    And what is the size of the cups I should use? I am from the Netherlands so our plastic cups are not the same size as American/Canadian cups…

    I am looking forward to your response and thank you for sharing this recipe:D

    • I used 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and for the measuring cups, I used a liquid 250ml cup for the whipping cream and dry measuring cups for everything else, ranging from:
      1 cup = 250ml
      1/2 cup = 125ml
      1/3 cup = approximately 80ml
      1/4 cup = approximately 60ml

      Also tbsp means tablespoon for the butter and sea salt. I hope that clarifies everything. Please feel free to email me back if you have any further questions. Thanks for visiting my site and have a wonderful day:)

  6. So pretty and decadent! I too think mascarpone is too expensive, but a once in awhile splurge is worth it!

  7. This recipe looks delicious and fancy too (yet not too hard to make) 🙂 Can you please tell me about how many oreos you need to make get 2 cups of crumbs? Thanks!

    • Hi Valerie,
      I’m guessing about 10-15 cookies with the filling and you can omit the butter since the filling should make it sticky enough to press onto the tart pan. I buy my cookie crumbs pre-packaged, must be a Canadian thing bc I received a similar question for one of my other recipes. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy:)

  8. wow, this looks and sounds delish!

  9. This is the MOST gorgeous thing! It looks divine–I can’t wait to try it out myself!

  20. can you use graham cracker crumbs as a substitute?

    • yes, I don’t see why not, it will give the tart a different taste from the oreo cookie crumbs, but I think the flavors will still work together, thank you for your question:)
