This would have been better had the directions said to beat the mascarpone, first, to get it creamy, then add the other ingredients. When you simply put them all together, the mascarpone does not get blended in well enough and you can see little bits of the cheese in the pumpkin mixture and the whipping cream gets whipped before the mascarpone gets blended in!
I made this for a formal dinner that served 150 people and everyone really loved it. I served it as a small bite in 3 oz dessert cups and it was the perfect addition to the dessert tray. The store that normally carries the chocolate wafers was sold out, so I crushed up some Tam Tams and it was really good. A big hit in my book!
