A rich, easy, no-bake dessert with layer after layer of chocolate wafers and blackberry-laced mascarpone cream.
Marie Brizard Blackberry Liqueur is great in this recipe, but you could also use crème de mûre.
Note: Cover the cake well before putting it in the refrigerator to set so that it doesn’t take on any odors in your fridge.
Beverage Pairing: Convento Cappuccini Brachetto d’Acqui, Italy. The best way to pair wine with this ultra-rich dessert is to contrast it with something light and effervescent. Brachetto d’Acqui is such a wine. Red and sparkling, it has the sweetness to pair with the dessert, but the buoyancy and delicacy to leaven the heavy chocolate and mascarpone.
It's Halloween party season, which means candy corn, punch bowls with floating eyeballs, lots of pumpkins...
