    1 2/3  c             chocolate wafers  -- Crushed
      1/3  cup           butter  -- melted
                         FILLING:
    2      Envelopes     unflavored gelatin
      1/4  ts            Salt
    1      tb            Instant coffee granules
    2      c             Milk
    4                    Eggs, separated
      1/3  c             Irish Cream liqueur
    1      lb            Cream cheese
      1/2  c             Granulated sugar
    4      oz            Semisweet chocolate
 					
 
    This can be made a day ahead, and it freezes well too.
  
    CRUST;  In bowl, combine wafers and butter.  Press into 13 x 9 inch
    glass baking dish.  Refrigerate.
  
    FILLING;  In saucepan, cook gelatin, salt, coffee and milk, stirring
    constantly, over medium heat until hot and coffee is dissolved.
    Reduce heat. Stir a little coffee mixture into egg yolks, then pour
    egg mixture back into saucepan. Cook, stirring frequently, until
    mixture thickens slightly, 4 - 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add
    liqueur. Using electric mixer or food processor, blend cream cheese
    and 1/4 cup of the sugar until smooth. Slowly blend coffee mixture
    into cream cheese. Chill, stirring occasionally, until consistency of
    raw egg whites, about 1 - 1-1/2 hours. Meanwhile, melt chocolate in
    double boiler over hot water. Let cool. Beat egg whites until soft
    peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar and beat until stiff peaks
    form. Gently fold egg whites into coffee mixture. Transfer 1-1/2 cups
    of coffee mixture to small bowl and fold in chocolate. Using large
    spoon, alternately spoon two mixtures over chocolate crust. Use knife
    to swirl chocolate through
