To assemble, split each ladyfinger in half, dip in coffee, liqueur mixture and layer bottom of glass (9 x 13) dish. Top with half the cheese mixture and half the heath bits; repeat layers ending with Heath Bits.
Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving; overnight is better.
Serves 8 generously.
You can substitute cream cheese for the Mascarpone (it isn't as good though); and you can use Amaretto or Kaluha in place of the Tuca. Some of my friends substitute brandy. that's a little strong for my taste, but feel free to experiment!
