  • Yield: 12 servings


  • 24 ladyfingers (2 (3-ounce) packages)
  • 1/4 cup Kahlúa (coffee-flavored liqueur)
  • 1 (2.6-ounce) box whipped topping mix (such as Dream Whip)
  • 1 1/2 cups cold fat-free milk, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa

Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Brush cut sides of ladyfinger halves with Kahlúa; arrange, cut sides up, in bottom and up sides of a 10-inch springform pan. Cover with plastic wrap.

Prepare whipped topping mix according to package directions using 1 cup cold milk and vanilla extract.

Combine sugar and cocoa. Beat sugar mixture and cream cheese at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (mixture will not be completely smooth). Add 1/2 cup milk to cream cheese mixture; beat well. Gently fold in whipped topping. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Cover and freeze 4 hours or until firm.
