Set aside half of custard and place chocolate into TM bowl with remaining custard.

Stir for 1 minute on speed 3 until chocolate has melted. Turn dial slowly until you reach speed 8. Scrape down sides of bowl if necessary. When fully combined and smooth, pour into cooled crust.

General Tips

Replace mascarpone with whipping cream if desired.
