    Combine 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.

    One 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.
