Make it Easy
For easy removal of dessert from pan before cutting into bars, line empty pan with foil or parchment paper, with ends of foil extending over sides. Then, use the foil handles to remove chilled dessert from pan before cutting into bars.

Blend 3 Tbsp. coffee-flavoured liqueur with 2 tsp. Maxwell House Coffee granules. Substitute this for the 3 Tbsp. milk used to prepare custard layer.
