ICE CREAM-TOFFEE DESSERT

Note: i have placed this recipe on my Quick Fix blog because it only requires about 15 minutes to prepare. It does, however, need to freeze for at least 8 hours. It is a great quick and easy make ahead dessert!

2 pkgs (3-oz each) ladyfingers
2 tbsp instant coffee granules
1/4 cup boiling water
3 (1.4-oz) toffee candy bars, divided
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
2 tbsp coffee liqueur, optional
1 container (8-oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Stand ladyfingers around the edge of a 9-inch springform pan; line the bottom of pan with ladyfingers.

Combine the instant coffee granules with boiling water in a small bowl, stirring constantly until all granules have dissolved; let cool completely.

While coffee cools, chop 2 of the candy bars into small pieces. Stir chopped candy and the cooled coffee into the softened ice cream. Spoon into the pan over the lady fingers in bottom. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 8 hours.

Stir the liqueur, if using, into the thawed whipped topping. Dollop around the edge and one dollop in center of the frozen dessert.

Chop the 3rd candy bar and sprinkl over the top of the ice cream mixture. Using a knife dipped in warm water, cut into thin wedges to serve. Store any leftovers in freezer.
