Pancakes
4 oz cream cheese
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1pkg sweetener or Stevia
Filling
4 oz of cream cheese, softened
2 T sugar free caramel flavored syrup...
1 cup heavy cream

Hot Fudge Sauce
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup cream or half and half
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1 teaspoon pure real vanilla extract

Easy Caramel Sauce
1 packed cup brown sugar
1/2 cup half-and-half
4 tablespoons butter
Pinch salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Instructions - 4 servings
Pancakes
Put all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Let rest for 2 minutes so the bubbles can settle. Pour 1/4 of the batter into a hot pan greased with butter or Pam spray. Cook for 2 minutes until golden, flip and cook 1 minute on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

Filling
Mix the cream cheese with the caramel syrup until smooth and creamy. Whip the heavy cream until stiff. Fold about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the caramel mixture. Add the caramel mixture back to the remainder of the whipped cream and fold gently until fully combined. Chill for a few minutes.

Hot Fudge Sauce
Whisk cocoa and sugar together well and put into a heavy saucepan. Add the chocolate and the butter and let them melt, stirring all to make a thick paste. Slowly add the cream, stirring constantly so that you have a smooth sauce. Add the salt. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly so it doesn't burn. Cook to desired consistency and remove from the heat. Stir in the vanilla and serve immediately. Makes about 1 1/2 cups of sauce.

You can store this sauce in the refrigerator. Reheat gently, stirring often before using.

Caramel Sauce
Mix the brown sugar, half-and-half, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook while whisking gently for 5 to 7 minutes, until it gets thicker. Add the vanilla and cook another minute to thicken further. Turn off the heat, cool slightly and pour the sauce into a jar. Refrigerate until cold.

Note
If you prefer, make a batch of crepes...instead of the Pancakes above - and fill with the Tiramisu filling or even Ice Cream, Hot Fudge Sauce and Caramel Sauce.

To Assemble, You'll Need:
12 4x4” square of cream cheese pancakes
Filling
Hot Fudge Sauce
Easy Caramel Sauce
1 cup espresso or coffee, cooled
Unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting
Soak the pancakes in the coffee for about 2 minutes. Since they aren’t very porous it takes a little time for them to absorb the coffee flavor.
Add the cream filling to a pastry bag with a large star tube attached.
Have four small plates ready. Place a coffee square on the plate. Pipe a layer of cream on it. Dust with cocoa powder. Repeat until you have three layers. Repeat with the rest of the plates.
