Hi Siriously Delicious readers! I'm so excited to be guest posting for Siri while she takes a little time to bond with her precious baby girl. Since we both have a considerable amount of love for sugar and Siri makes such amazing desserts, I knew I could only contribute a deeelicious treat! This Mocha Chocolate Icebox recipe was shared with me because of its overwhelming goodness. It's an Ina Garten recipe (love her desserts) and I've been dying to make it! Get ready to drool... it consists of homemade chocolate chip cookies, layered with a chocolate, mocha, mascarpone whip and then set out so the flavors can blend together. Almost like a tiramisu, but with chocolate chip cookies! Honestly, it tastes too good to be true, but you'll have to make one to believe it. It's fairly easy to make and to save time (if you don't want to actually turn your oven on), you can use chocolate chip cookies from a bakery. Besides the cookies, this is a non-bake dessert : )
Instead of buying cookies, I made my own and used the simple chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the Ghiradelli chocolate chip bag (minus 1/4 cup flour) and they were great!
