Ever seen this stuff before? I came across this product at the supermarket the other day. It is a ready made chocolate cheesecake filling from the fine folks that make Philadelphia Brand cream cheese. Well, when I’m making a cheesecake, Philly is always the brand I reach for, so I guess that is good enough for me. I picked up a tub and took it home to see what it was all about. I have to say, it wasn’t bad. In fact, it was pretty good. With a little doctoring up, it made a pretty darn tasty dessert!
Later that day, I was trying to figure out what to do with my new discovery. I decide to make you a little something to get you in a “chocolate” kind of mood so that you might think of me when casting your vote in Culinate’s Death by Chocolate contest . (Now, you knew that was coming, didn’t you?). Seriously, if you haven’t already done so, please take a moment to click on over to Culinate  and vote for your favorite entry in the contest. If not for me, then for one of the other fabulous food bloggers who have submitted such mouthwatering entries. By voting, you will also be entered in the contest yourself. There’s nothing to lose but a few minutes of your time.

Anyway, I made you a Chocolate Mascarpone Cheese Pie. I made a chocolate cookie crust with chocolate wafer cookies and melted butter. Then, I added mascarpone cheese to the cheesecake filling to make it richer and smoother. To top finish it off, I topped the pie with strawberry Cool Whip . I loved the pretty pale pink color! It is perfect for Valentine’s Day.
I hope you like it. It was the least I could do after bugging you so relentlessly about the contest!
