This cool and light dessert is delicious dairy or parve, large or small. It is super easy to prepare and can be made in a minimal amount of time.


2 packages lady fingers

1 cup water

2 tbsp. instant coffee grounds

2 tbsp. coffee liqueur

1 large Rich Whip

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

1 package cream cheese (parve or dairy)

1 chocolate bar

Directions For Mini Cups:

(Square, 3-inch cups work beautifully with this dessert.)

1.    Whip up cream in an electric mixer.

2.    When fully whipped, add vanilla, confectioners’
        sugar, and cream cheese. Set aside.

3.    Dissolve coffee and coffee liqueur in water
        and place in a wide bowl.

4.    Place lady fingers in coffee mixture for ten seconds,
        then remove.

5.    Place two lady fingers at the bottom of the cup.

6.    Pipe cheese mixture over.

7.    Continue layering lady fingers dipped in coffee
        and cheese mixture until cup is full.

8.    At the top of the cup, pipe cream cheese mixture
        with a large star tip to give it a professional finish.

9.    With a vegetable peeler, scrape the side of a
        chocolate bar. This will form chocolate curls.

10.  Place chocolate curls on the top of the cups
        for garnish.

11.  Freeze cups and thaw 30 minutes before serving.

Directions For Large Tiramisu:
