Chocolate  mascarpone grilled cheese is my recipe of the day. I am  posting with the blogging  group From Our Dinner Table. We group  together on Sundays to post on  a variety of topics. And  this week  the focus is on grilled cheese for dessert.

I  decided to  make a grilled  cheese using chocolate bars and mascarpone cheese. I think  it is  probably an Americanized version of Cioccolato e pane, which is  chocolate bread in Italian. Although  it is possible that is a name stretch.  I am no expert on  Italian culinary words. So hopefully  the food police will  cut  me  some  slack.

But  I  am  an expert on  delicious. And  delicious this is. You’ll  need to let it cool down so you don’t burn your mouth with hot chocolate. But even so, it is still crispy and also nicely gooey, so  have a napkin ready. Or just lick your fingers as I did.

My husband says it reminds him of the taste of a chocolate  cannoli. And  he  is pretty much right about that. Except this has crispy buttery bread.

And besides being  wonderful for dessert, who is with me in having one of these for  breakfast with a hot cup of coffee? OMG I can’t wait for  morning to come.

Because you see, I have extra mascarpone  leftover, since I didn’t make these  all at once.  But I did measure the filling  to see how  many  the recipe makes. And you can enjoy these again and again.
