Prep: 20 Minutes

3/4 cup espresso, cooled
1/4 cup dark rum or coffee liqueur
1 (3-ounce) package soft ladyfingers
3 cups vanilla ice cream or coffee ice cream
3/4 cup finely grated bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
Garnish: cocoa powder


1. Line an 8- x 4-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap, allowing 2 to 3 inches to extend over sides.

2. Combine espresso and rum in a shallow bowl. Brush or quickly dip one-third of ladyfingers (about 8) on both sides in espresso mixture, and place in bottom of prepared loaf pan.

3. Layer 1 cup ice cream over ladyfingers, and sprinkle evenly with one-third grated chocolate. Repeat 2 times with remaining ladyfingers, espresso mixture, ice cream, and grated chocolate.

4. Cover and freeze at least 3 hours or until ready to serve. Invert pan onto a serving platter, and remove pan and plastic wrap. Cut into 1 1/2- or 2-inch slices. Garnish, if desired.
