One of my favorite Italian desserts, is their popularly known as Italian pick-me-up. This version of this delightful treat, adds in toffee candy, which adds crunchiness to the texture.
1 pound cake (bread loaf size), cut into slices
3/4 cup brewed coffee
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered English toffee, chopped
Slice cake, and arrange slices on bottom of a 11 x 7 inch rectangular baking dish. You can cut cake slices as necessary to fit the bottom of the dish. Drizzle cake with coffee.
In a large bowl beat sugar, chocolate syrup, cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add whipping cream. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Spread mixture over cake. Sprinkle with chocolate-covered toffee candy.
Spread frosting over cake. Sprinkle with toffee candy. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend, and for dessert to set.
