5T dark rum
1 t vanilla
1 t chocolate extract (optional)
8 oz Mascarpone

|Is there a better sight than chocolate melting into cream?|
|Looks like we'll need some more rum for making Dark n Stormies*|
Pampered Chef. I was a doubting Thomas and did not think it was going to be worth it but I bought it anyway (Thank you Tracy). It's is called Core & More - what a multi-tasker it is! It can core a apple** pear, strawberry, seed tomatoes, seed squash and on and on.
|This end works especially well on strawberries|
|This end works great on squash|
*A Dark 'N Stormy is 1.5oz dark rum and 5 oz Ginger Beer and totally yummy!
