ING: 250g philly cream cheese; 1/3 cup sugar; 3 tbs coffee liquer (I just used vanilla here as it is a baptist church & we're new & I don't want to rock any boats); 1 tsp vanilla essence; 900mls cream (definitely not for people on a diet - I promise to just have a teeny tiny piece); 24 ladyfinger sponge fingers; 1 cup strong brewed coffee; 1 cup chocolate (grated);
METHOD: * Mix with an electric beater the cream cheese, about 1/4 cup cream; sugar, liquer (or vanilla as I used); & vanilla.
* Whip rest of cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into cream cheese mixture.
* Arrange 1/2 sponge fingers in a glass dish ( I use a 4.5L dish, but it really is too big - my smaller ones have both been broken - yes I am very clumsy at times). Sprinkle with half of the coffee & spoon half of the cream mix on top. Sprinkle with 1/2 the grated chocolate. Repeat this layering process.
* Cover & refrigerate. Best if left overnight!
Hope the people we're going to are prepared for very busy toddler twin boys!
