Faux Tiramisu Cheesecake

Over the years, I've tasted hundreds of desserts with my eyes and my imagination. Knowing the ingredients is usually enough for me to create my own version of something wonderful. This recipe was inspired by an exquisite Italian confection that is the chosen dessert of true romantics. Isn't love grand?
Serves 8

2 (8-ounce) packages Philadelphia fat-free cream cheese
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 cup cold coffee
1 teaspoon brandy extract
3/4 cup Cool Whip Lite *
1 (6-ounce) Keebler chocolate piecrust
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

In a large bowl, stir cream cheese with a spoon until soft. Add dry pudding mix, dry milk powder and coffee. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in brandy extract, and 1/4 cup Cool Whip Lite. Spread mixture into piecrust. Evenly drop remaining Cool Whip Lite by tablespoon to form 8 mounds. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cut into 8 servings.
