Instructions
  1. Blend the ingredients for the mascarpone filling layer. Blend for a minute, then let the mixture rest for 2 mins, then blend again until very smooth and silky,
  2. Taste and adjust the sweet and tang and mix. Transfer to a bowl.
  3. In the same blender (no need to wash), Blend the cocoa coffee layer filling until smooth. Blend for a minute, then let the mixture rest for 2 mins, then blend again. Taste and adjust sweet and flavor if needed. I make these bars mildly sweet, so add sweet if needed, and blend in.
  4. Line a loaf pan with parchment. Pour the coffee cocoa mixture in and even it out. Freeze for 20 to 30 mins.
  5. Pour the mascarpone mixture on top and even it out. Sprinkle shaved chocolate or cocoa powder on top and freeze for 2 hours or longer. Then slice and store. I prefer to slice these into small bite size pieces. Serve after thawing for 5 mins or when they are soft enough to bite or use a spoon but not melting. .
Recipe Notes

*If using liquid sweetener, reduce water by the amount of sweetener used.

To sub cashews, use other nuts such as macadamia, or use coconut cream, or use silken tofu and no water. I havent tried these variations with this recipe, but they work in similar applications.

To sub coconut oil: Use melted cocoa butter or more cashews
