12/5: Holiday Desserts with the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board


Eau Claire (WQOW) -- Are you still wondering what desserts to whip up for your holiday party? Well look no more, we have some recipes to pass along from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

Start your planning for seasonal entertaining and eating with inspiration from the new holiday issue of Grate Pair Share magazine. Grate Pair Share is an easy and approachable resource for eating and entertaining with Wisconsin Cheese. 

Today's recipes feature real Wisconsin butter and whipping cream combined with award-winning Wisconsin cheese to create a flavor that's rich, pure and natural.

Coffee and Doughnut Truffles:


  • 4 old-fashioned cake doughnuts, broken into pieces

  • 1 container (8 ounces) BelGioioso Tiramisù Mascarpone cheese

  • 6 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped

  • 2 tablespoons espresso powder

  • Coffee beans or chocolate-covered coffee beans, optional



Place doughnuts and mascarpone in a food processor; cover and process until mixture is smooth. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.


Line a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Roll doughnut mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls; place on prepared pan. Refrigerate 1 hour.


Melt chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl on 50% power in 30-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Dip balls in chocolate, let any excess drip off. Return to parchment-lined pan. Dust with espresso powder. Garnish with coffee beans if desired. Refrigerate until serving. 


  • Any brand of Wisconsin mascarpone cheese can be used.
  • When dipping the truffles, use a table fork or candy fork to lift each ball out of the melted baking chocolate. The excess chocolate will drip through the fork tines, leaving a smooth chocolate coat. Use a toothpick to gently place it on the pan.
