In a saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate with cream, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Scrape into a medium bowl and stir in Mascarpone until it is completely blended. Stir in coffee liqueur.

Refrigerate, uncovered until quite firm, 3–4 hours. Meanwhile, using a food processor, process ladyfingers into coarse crumbs. Place crumbs on a plate.

Scoop out about 1 tbsp (15 mL) chocolate mixture and roll into a ball measuring about 1˝ (2.5 cm). Roll in crumbs, then place on a baking sheet. Repeat. Refrigerate until ready to enjoy.


The coffee liqueur may be substituted by 2 tsp (10 mL) instant coffee granules dissolved in 1 tbsp (15 mL) water.

Cheese alternative: Canadian Cream Cheese.
