Double Chocolate Tiramisu

This got thumbs up from all that had it. It's excellent and very easy to make.

Double Chocolate Tiramisu

2 TBS. unsweetened cocoa powder, more for garnish
1 1/2 c. heavy cream
4 ounces chocolate chips, ( I used 60% cocoa darker chocolate chips)
1- 8oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
24 ladyfinger cookies ( 7oz package)

1. In a medium bowl, mix cocoa powder with 1 1/2 c. very hot water until dissolved; set aside.
In a small sauce pan combine 1/4 cup cream and chocolate on medium low heat until melted. Cool to room temperature.

2. Transfer cooled chocolate mixture to a mixing bowl and add cream cheese and sugar. Beat using a mixer until blended. Add remaining 1 1/4 c. of cream and beat until fluffy. Approx. 2 mins.

3. Spread 1/4 cup chocolate filling in the bottom of a loaf pan. One at a time dip 6 lady fingers in the cocoa mixture, then arrange in a single layer in dish. Spread 3/4 cup chocolate mixture over lady fingers and repeat until cookies are used up and end with chocolate mixture on top.

4. Cover the tiramisu and refrigerate at least 2 hours (or up to 2 days). Dust with cocoa powder before serving.
