Mocha Chocolate Ice Box Cake

This mocha chocolate ice box cake was the perfect finale to our incredible Valentine's Day dinner.  It took the traditional ice box cake to another level with the addition of espresso powder, Kahlua, and Mascarpone cheese.  I used a combination of chocolate wafers and Trader Joe's Highbrow Chocolate Chip Cookies for each layer.  That just wasn't enough so I spread each cookie with a little of Trader Joe's Crunchy Cookie Butter.  This stuff is INSANELY delicious, trust me on that!  Instead of the chocolate shavings the recipe calls for I used some cake stencils and cocoa powder.  For a no bake dessert that will definitely impress your guest this cake is the way to go.
