3/4 c
granulated sugar
1 c
boiling water
8 oz
whipped cream cheese
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
heavy cream
10
vanilla cream-filled snack cakes,twinkies, halved lengthwise
4 oz
finely chopped semisweet chocolate

Step-By-Step

1Place espresso powder and 1/2 cup sugar in a heatproof bowl. Pour boiling water into bowl and whisk to dissolve. Let cool to room temperature.
2Combine cream cheese, vanilla and remaining 1/4 cup of sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
In another large bowl, beat heavy cream until it holds stiff peaks. Gently fold cream cheese mixture into whipped cream.
3One at a time, dip the Twinkies halves into coffee mixture just to moisten. Place them alongside each other in bottom of a shallow 11x 7-inch baking dish. Spread 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture over Twinkies, then sprinkle with 1/2 the chopped chocolate.
4Repeat with remaining Twinkies, cream cheese mixture and chocolate. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.
