Directions

  1. Blend mascarpone, ricotta cheese, pudding mix, and Splenda until smooth.

  4. Gently fold in the whipped topping.
  5. In a small shallow bowl combine the coffee flavored liqueur and espresso.
  6. Quickly dip 1/2 of the lady fingers into the espresso mixture until moistened, not wet.
  7. Line them up along the bottom of a trifle bowl.
  8. Gently spoon in 1/2 of the cheese mixture over the lady fingers.

  10. Line them up on top of the cheese mixture.
  11. Gently spoon the remaining cheese mixture on top of the lady fingers.
