Braly: Ladyfingers alternative to cake or pie

Here’s a delicious alternative to cake or pie from Nestles. Paired with a smooth chocolate sauce, these crisp but delicate sponge cakes offer an elegant end to your meal.

Crisp Ladyfingers with Chocolate Dipping Sauce

1 cup (6 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons Grand Marnier or Kahlúa liqueur (optional)

1/4 teaspoon instant coffee granules

16 to 24 crisp ladyfingers

Place chips and cream in medium, microwave-safe dish. Microwave on high power for 60 seconds; stir with whisk until smooth. Whisk in liqueur and coffee granules until coffee is dissolved.

Divide chocolate sauce between 8 small dessert glasses. Add 2 to 3 ladyfingers to each glass; serve immediately.

Cook's Tip: Cubed pound cake, amaretto cookies and/or sliced fruit are also great with the chocolate sauce.
