No bake Salted dark Chocolate Mascarpone Tart

Happy Mother's Day to all my mommy reader.  Have a good one.

I managed to trim down my weight back to before Oct's scale.  I was really happy because, that extra weight really makes me sluggish and lousy.

Was craving for a cheese tart after I spent some time browsing Pinterest.  It is definitely not a good idea if you are on diet but hey, I am on celebration mode!

Went on to buy myself some cheese and tada ..... No bake Salted Dark Chocolate Mascarpone Tart.  I fell in love with this the moment I saw it.  It looks good and I was enticed.

I am also happy that I can participate this round of Bake Along as I kept missing out the dateline.  Well this always happens to procrastinator right?  

Verdict: This is a delicious pie, my family loves it to bits.  It tasted like light ice cream.  This is best eaten at home, not a pie that you will bring to a party as it melts rather quickly.

My family prefers it with salt as the orea base already has a hint of saltiness in it.
