Prep: 30 min., Cool: 5 min., Cook: 5 min., Chill: 1 hr.


1 1/2 cups NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

2 (3-ounce) packages ladyfingers

1 (13-ounce) jar hazelnut spread

20 caramels

2 1/3 cups whipping cream, divided

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

1/3 cup DOMINO 10-X Confectioners Sugar

1 (8-ounce) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened

2 tablespoons crème de cacao

3 (1-ounce) semisweet chocolate baking squares

2 tablespoons DOMINO 10-X Confectioners Sugar

Microwave chocolate morsels at HIGH 90 seconds or until melted, stirring at 30 second intervals; cool 5 minutes, and set aside.

Split ladyfingers, and stand halves around edge of a 9-inch springform pan, placing rounded sides against pan; line bottom of pan with remaining halves. Reserve remaining ladyfingers for other uses. Spread hazelnut spread evenly over ladyfingers on bottom of pan.

Cook caramels and 1/3 cup whipping cream in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, just until melted. Stir in pecans until coated; spoon caramel mixture evenly over hazelnut spread.

Beat 1/3 cup confectioners sugar and cream cheese in a medium bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add crème de cacao; beat until blended. Beat in melted morsels until blended.

Beat remaining 2 cups whipping cream in a medium bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until stiff; fold into cream cheese mixture, and spoon evenly over caramel layer in pan.

Shave baking squares with a vegetable peeler evenly on top. Sprinkle evenly with 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar. Chill 1 hour. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Nutella for hazelnut spread.

Yield: Makes 12 servings
