Total Time 20 mins



  •  2 cups heavy cream
  • 12 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua (coffee liqueur)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 (7-ounce) packages of thin, crisp store-bought chocolate chip cookies, like Tate's
  • Chocolate shavings, curls or shards, for garnish


Using a [easyazon_link identifier="B00005UP2P" locale="US" tag="thskchcaba-20"]stand mixer[/easyazon_link] fitted with the whisk attachment or a [easyazon_link identifier="B00CPSRE4U" locale="US" tag="thskchcaba-20"]hand mixer[/easyazon_link], combine the heavy cream, mascarpone, sugar, Kahlua, cocoa powder, [easyazon_link identifier="B002BTI9B0" locale="US" tag="thskchcaba-20"]espresso powder[/easyazon_link], and vanilla.
Mix on low speed to combine, then whip until firm peaks form.
To assemble the cake, arrange [easyazon_link identifier="B00CQABEQG" locale="US" tag="thskchcaba-20"]chocolate chip cookies[/easyazon_link] flat in an [easyazon_link identifier="B0050DHBMC" locale="US" tag="thskchcaba-20"]8-inch springform pan[/easyazon_link] to cover the bottom. Break a couple of the cookies to fill any open spaces.

Using an [easyazon_link identifier="B00004OCNM" locale="US" tag="thskchcaba-20"]offset spatula[/easyazon_link], spread approximately a fifth of the mocha whipped cream evenly over the cookies. 

Repeat with another layer of cookies and another layer of mocha whipped cream until there are five layers of each. You will end with the mocha cream.

Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight.
When ready to plate , run a small sharp knife or your offset spatula around the outside of the cake, then remove the sides of the pan.

Top cake with chocolate shavings or make my easy chocolate shards. Cut into slices and serve.
