cup water
⅓ cup coffee liqueur or Kahlua
⅓ cup dark corn syrup
2 tbsp instant coffee powder or espresso powder
2 tbsp, plus cup powdered sugar, divided
8oz cream cheese, softened
cup powdered sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
cup sour cream
3-4 packages (3oz each) lady fingers, thawed if frozen and split in half horizontally
Unsweetened cocoa powder (droste brand or hershey in silver can)
cup sliced almonds, toasted
Chocolate curls for garnish (melt milk chocolate, spread on back of cookie sheet, let set but not too hard. Cut in strips and then push with spatula to curl)

Whisk water, coffee liqueur, corn syrup, coffee powder and the 2 tbsp powdered sugar in a small bowl until blended. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat cream cheese, the cup powdered, and ⅓ cup of coffee mixture until smooth and fluffy. In medium bowl with electric mixer, beat whipping cream until peaks form. Add the cup powdered sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in sour cream. Fold whipped cream mixture into cream cheese mixture.
