Pantry Raid #18: Lady Finger Cheesecake with Chocolate Sauce

lady finger dessert baseStill lingering around are large packages of lady fingers from when I had planned to make tiramisu. Also, hiding in the pantry was a food service size package of sugar-free cheesecake mix. Just a bit of cool whip was found in the freezer. A chocolate sauce was the only “new creation” that was needed.

Fill the bottom of a large glass dish with a  layer of (24) lady fingers. Spread 1/2 of the prepared cheesecake mix over them. Place another layer of lady fingers on top then add the second 1/2 of the cheesecake mix. Top that with cool whip. Then pour chocolate syrup over it and refrigerate.

In a small saucepan, mix 1 cup cocoa powder, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, dash of nutmeg.  Whisk to blend and bring to a boil, stirring for three minutes or until beginning to thicken. Remove from heat and add 2 teaspoons vanilla and stir to mix. Cool before pouring on dessert.
