 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1                    Lady fingers -- hard
    8                    Egg yolks
      1/4  cup           Sugar
    1      pound         Mascarpone cheese
    2      cups          Cream heavy
    2      cups          Coffee -- strong cooled
    2      tablespoons   Sugar
    2      ounces        Kahlua
    2      ounces        Rum
 
 Whip heavy cream until stiff. Whip egg yolks with 1/4 cup sugar until pale
yellow. Add mascarpone and whip until mixed well. Whip in the stiffly beaten
heavy cream until all is mixed well. Use almost any size container, usually a 9 x
13 clear dish. Put half of the cheese mixture on the bottom, spreading evenly.
 Mix the coffee with the kahlua, rum and 2 tbls sugar.
 Soak the lady fingers, with the coffe mix, one at a time, until they absorb some
of the liquid, but still feel a little crisp. Place the soaked lady fingers over
the cheese layer in the dish. Top with the rest of the cheese mixture and smooth
over all with the back of a spoon. Coarsely chop some bittersweet chocolate and
sprinkle it over the top. Let stand chilled at least 6 hours before serving.
