    15g chunk dark chocolate
    2 tsp cocoa powder (unsweetened)
    1 serving jar


  1. Place the cream, mascarpone and sugar in a bowl and whisk until all ingredients are mixed and form a thick whipped cream.
  2. Take your serving jar and layer the bottom with sponge fingers (cut in half).
  3. Pour half of the espresso over the sponge fingers and leave for a few minutes until absorbed.
  4. Grate the dark chocolate chunk and sprinkle grated chocolate over the sponge layer.
