 Valentine’s Day Celebrations are as Easy as Pie with Crave Brothers Mascarpone


Waterloo, WI, January 15, 2015—Create your Valentine’s Day celebration pie with Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone. Crave Brothers’ Chocolate Mascarpone Pie, incorporating their creamy, award-winning cheese, is now a tradition for many Valentine’s Day celebrations.  This simple four-ingredient dessert calls for Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone, melted dark chocolate, a mini bottle of Kahlua coffee liqueur and a chocolate cookie crumb crust. You can even send a Crave Brothers romantic Chocolate Mascarpone Pie Gift Basket packed with all the ingredients needed to create a taste memory.

Not everybody is a traditionalist, though, so you can also customize Crave Brothers Mascarpone Pie recipes to suit the tastes of the one you love.  Here are five variations on this classic.

The Gourmet will appreciate a pie made with Crave Brothers Mascarpone and a combination of melted white chocolate chips and cherry-flavored chips in a graham cracker crust. Add a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream, if desired.

The Trendster is all about hip flavor combinations, so why not create a Salted Caramel Mascarpone Pie with caramel liqueur and melted butterscotch chips in a graham cracker crust? Sprinkle a grain or two of fleur de sel on each pie slice just before serving.


The Nostalgia Buff likes old movies, reminiscing and embracing favorite flavors of the past. Create a rich, Chocolate Mint Mascarpone Pie, reminiscent of peppermint patty candy bars, by substituting mint chocolate chips for dark chocolate chips in the traditional recipe.

The Grown-Up Kid will find it hard to resist a pie made with Crave Brothers Mascarpone and chocolate peanut butter chips in a chocolate cookie crumb crust.

The Luxury Lover believes there’s never too much of a good thing, which is why

you can’t go wrong by drizzling raspberry puree or dessert topping over a slice of traditional Chocolate Mascarpone Pie.

The Crave family farms 2000 acres of rich land in south-central Wisconsin, growing soybeans, corn and alfalfa to use as nutritious feed for their Holstein cows. From the manure digester to water recovery, sustainability is top-of-mind on the farm. Every pound of cheese made by George Crave, a licensed cheese maker, is made with milk from the family’s herd. Crave Brothers also manufacture Fresh Mozzarella, Farmer’s Rope String cheese, and Oaxaca.
