1 2/3 c Chocolate wafers; crushed
1/3 c Butter; melted
2 pk Gelatin, unflavored
1/4 ts Salt
1 tb Coffee, instant
2 c Milk
4 Egg; separated
1/3 c Irish cream liqueur
1 lb Cream cheese
1/2 c Sugar
4 oz Chocolate, semi-sweet
CRUST: In bowl, combine wafers and butter. Press into 13 x 9 inch glass
baking dish. Refrigerate.
FILLING: In saucepan, cook gelatin, salt, coffee and milk, stirring
constantly, over medium heat until hot and coffee is dissolved. Reduce
heat. Stir a little coffee mixture into egg yolks, then pour egg mixture
back into saucepan. Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens

Using an electric mixer or food processor, blend cream cheese and 1/4 cup

water. Let cool. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add
remaing sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into
coffee mixture. Transfer 1-1/2 cups of coffee mixture to small bowl and
fold in chocolate. Using large spoon, alternately spoon two mixtures over
chocolate crust. Use knife to swirl chocolate through coffee mixture.
Refrigerate until firm, at least 6 hours.
