Mascarpone Clouds

Made these last night as an emergency substitute for my usual tiramisu.

The most heavenly 10-minute dessert ever!

Mascarpone Clouds

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
(lots of vegan options - I used Soya)

1 cup mascarpone cheese, softened
(can substitute soy cream cheese like Tofutti)

2 tablespoons ground espresso coffee

3-4 tablespoons sugar
(or to taste)

4-5 teaspoons brandy

Suggested Toppings:

Toasted slivered almonds

Chocolate-covered espresso beans

Vegan chocolate shavings

Blackberries or strawberries

Crushed peppermint candy

Whip the heavy cream to soft peaks in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese to soften. Add the ground coffee, sugar and brandy. Mix until well combined.

Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture (be careful not to overmix), cover and chill for at least 2 hours.

Serve in dessert glasses and top with something to make them look festive.
