Chocolate Mascarpone Mousse

Chicken cacciatore requires 2 tablespoons of mascarpone but there is no way I can buy just 2 tablespoons of mascarpone. So I was left with a 8oz tub minus 2 tablespoons of mascarpone.

Mascarpone isn't cheap. A 8oz tub costs about HK$60++ and it's not good to waste food. There are people in third world countries who have nothing to eat!

Thus I turned this tubful of leftover goodness to a chocolatey treat.

I was supposed to serve these with whipped cream and more chopped banana. But I used up all the cream and banana to make these cuppies :X

There are sliced banana layered at the bottom of each cup. I am not a fan of banana as a fruit but I like them when they are baked or when they are accessories to some yummy cold chilled chocolate desserts. Chocolate and banana are BFF… they compliment each other so well.

These cookies and banana bread (not in picture) are current staples in our house :)
