Step 1

In large heatproof bowl set over saucepan of simmering water, combine chocolate, granulated sugar and cocoa powder, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Whisk in butter.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together egg yolks, cream and coffee; whisk slowly into chocolate mixture. Whisk in cinnamon and cayenne pepper; remove from heat. Whisk in cookies, almonds, apricots, figs, and ginger (if using), until well combined.

Step 3

Divide chocolate mixture in half. Place half of the mixture in center of large sheet of plastic wrap, shaping mixture into log, about 8 inches long x 2 inches wide. Roll up in plastic wrap, tightening both ends. Repeat with remaining chocolate mixture; refrigerate logs until set, about 3 hours. Remove logs from plastic wrap. Roll in icing sugar.

Step 4

Meanwhile, using electric mixer, whip mascarpone cheese with honey until light and fluffy.

Step 5

Slice each log into twelve 1/4-inch thick slices; place two slices on each plate and serve with whipped mascarpone and mixed berries.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

• Flavor whipped mascarpone with vanilla or orange liqueur if desired.
• Substitute any nut, such as pistachios, pecans or walnuts, for almonds.
• Substitute any dried fruit, such as raisins, cranberries or cherries, for dried apricots and figs.
