Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Mousse

Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Mousse

I love using Mascarpone in a variety of my dessert recipes, the Mascarpone has a tangy and sweet taste that’s hard to replicate or find in other ingredients. This Mascarpone Mousse recipe is so clean and easy to make that I have used it in our White Russian Cake and perfectly enjoy it on it’s own or topped with some freshly cut fruit. I decided to add Vanilla Bean to the Mascarpone Mousse, although you can use Vanilla extract, or leave the Vanilla out completely, it’s your call. The mousse texture in the Vanilla Bean Mascarporne Mousse is light and airy, the perfect recipe for anyone looking to please a family, crowd, or themselves. You can top your Mascarpone Mousse with chocolate shavings, chocolate covered nuts, fresh cut fruit or a delicious fruit reduction.
