Ingredients

Directions

HEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 9-inch round fluted tart pan with removable bottom with no-stick cooking spray.

COMBINE shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Sift flour into small bowl; add to shortening mixture. Mix on low speed until mixed.

TRANSFER to lightly floured surface; shape into disk. Press onto bottom and up sides of prepared pan (make sure the finished edge is flat). Chill until firm.

PLACE a square of aluminum foil over crust; fill shell with 2 cups dried beans or rice to keep crust flat. Bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and beans; bake about 20 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Cool.

HEAT 3/4 cup cream and 1 tablespoon shortening in microwave in medium bowl until boiling (about 90 seconds). Add chocolate chips; whisk until smooth. Set aside.

RESERVE 1/2 cup chocolate mixture. Pour remainder into cooled crust. Refrigerate 1 hour. Remove from refrigerator. Beat cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy.

ADD remaining 1/2 cup cream, 1 cup whipped topping, coffee crystals, cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Beat on high 2 minutes (or until coffee has dissolved), scraping down sides occasionally.

STIR in 1/2 cup toffee bits. Spread over chocolate layer. Refrigerate 2 hours (or overnight, if desired). Spread remaining whipped topping over coffee layer; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup toffee bits.

CUT tart into 8 slices; place slices on serving plates. Place remaining chocolate mixture in small resealable plastic food storage bag. Microwave until warm. Cut small corner off bag; squeeze to drizzle over tart slices; serve.
