ingredients

1 canister (13.5 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Pirouette® Chocolate Fudge Rolled Wafers

cup confectioners' sugar
1 container (8 ounces) mascarpone cheese, softened
2 tbsp. sweet Marsala wine
1/4 cup prepared coffee or espresso
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup grated bittersweet chocolate

directions

Reserve 8 wafers for garnish. Cut the remaining wafers into 2-inch-long pieces.

Beat the heavy cream and sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.

Stir the cheese, wine, coffee and vanilla extract in a large bowl with a fork or whisk until the mixture is smooth.  Fold in 1/2 cup whipped cream.

Divide the coffee cream among 8 parfait glasses. Top each with about 1/3 cup wafer pieces.  Top with the remaining whipped cream and the chocolate.  Garnish with the reserved wafers.  Serve immediately.
