For any of you who have felt a lack of creamy goodness in your life, this cream is the answer for you. It's richer than regular whipped cream due to the addition of mascarpone cheese and fancier than whipped cream due to a large amount of dulce de leche. These fancy additions are the reason I chose to call this "classy" cream. I mean really, the majority of its ingredients are in a foreign language. Classy. It can be served with a bowl of fresh strawberries for dessert. Classy. It looks good in a glass dish. Classy. And above all, my friend Eunice enjoys this cream and, if you know Eunice, she loves luxurious things and has some pretty high standards. Classy.
Classy Cream (Dulce de Leche Mascarpone Cream)

2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup + 1 Tbs. dulce de leche sauce
8 oz. container of mascarpone cheese
Chill bowl and mixer beaters in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

This recipe makes a whole lot! Layer it in a trifle, spread it on graham crackers, dip things in it, do what your heart desires. Or you can halve it and no one will be the wiser.
This recipe can be made a day ahead of time, just make sure you beat it well in order to get a good consistency.
