Tiramisu Toffee Dessert

Hubby and I were invited to dinner at a friend's place Saturday night.  I offered to bring something, ... she requested dessert.
Dessert!  Not really my specialty, but ...

In haste I scrambled to my favourite food web site ... All Recipes and found a recipe that was sure to wow.

I made a few variations ... Tip:  Always read the comments that others make on the recipes ... and it turned out to be a blue ribbon winner.  A zillion calories, but sometimes you just have to indulge.

Tiramisu Toffee Dessert

1 (10.75 ounce) package frozen prepared pound cake, thawed; cut into 1” chunks 
3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered English toffee, chopped  (No toffee in the house, so I substituted chopped-up butterscotch chips and added chocolate shavings)

  1. Arrange ½ of the cake chunks on the bottom of a trifle dish or glass bowl.  Drizzle ½ of the coffee over cake.
  2. Beat sugar, chocolate syrup, and cream cheese in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. 
  3. In another bowl beat the whipping cream at medium speed until light and fluffy. 
  4. Fold whipping cream into 'frosting' mixture.
  5. Spread half this mixture over cake. 
  6. Sprinkle with chocolate-covered toffee candy. 
  7. Arrange remaining cake chunks on top.  Drizzle with coffee.  Spread remaining frosting over cake.
  8. Sprinkle with toffee candy.
  9. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, but no longer than 24 hours to set dessert and blend flavors. 
Yummy in my Tummy
