  • Serves8 - 10

Ingredients

    • 1 pint heavy cream
    • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 Tablespoon strong brewed coffee (or 1 teaspoon instant espresso dissolved in 1 of water)
    • 1 teaspoon brandy or vanilla extract
    • 1 package chocolate wafer cookies

Instructions

Whip the cream in the bowl of a mixer until it holds soft peaks. Scrape the bowl and add the powdered sugar, coffee and brandy. Whip another few seconds until the cream is coffee-colored and holds stiff peaks. 

 To assemble the cake, working in batches of 10 cookies, spread one side of each cookie with a small amount of Love’n Bake™ Hazelnut Praline. Spread one to 2 tablespoons of coffee-flavored whipped cream on top of the Hazelnut Praline. Stack the wafers into a small pile. Fill in any gaps between the wafers with more coffee cream. Repeat with the remaining wafers, Hazelnut Praline and coffee cream until there are 4 stacks. 

 Lay the stacks of hazelnut and coffee-cream-filled cookies on their sides in parallel rows touching each other. Frost the “cake” generously with the remaining coffee cream, filling in all the gaps to make a neat rectangular cake. Refrigerate overnight. 

 Garnish the cake with grated chocolate and chocolate covered coffee beans. Slice on the diagonal when serving

Additional Notes
