Ingredients

    1 Angel Food Cake
    2 8oz packages fat-free cream cheese (room temperature)
    ¼ cup powdered sugar
    ¼ cup dark chocolate chips (at least 58% caco)
    2 tablespoons instant coffee or instant espresso
    1/3 cup water
    2 tablespoons rum or rum flavoring
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 cup heavy whipping cream (cold)
    1 tablespoon coffee liquor (or flavoring or other type; can also just use vanilla extract)

Directions

Cube the angel food cake and set aside. Put your mixer bowl and whipping attachment in the freezer.

Beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Blend the water, sugar, and instant coffee or espresso in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and add the rum or rum flavoring. Allow to simmer a few minutes.

Get your now frozen mixing bowl and whipping attachment. Put the whipping cream and coffee liquor (or other) in the bowl and beat on high speed until solid.

In a bowl, put 1/3 of the cake cubes (if the bowl has sloping sides, you might have to use less so you’ll have enough on the third layer) Top with 1/3 of the coffee (I find it best to spoon it onto each cube so it soaks in), then ½ of the cream cheese mixture. Top with 1/3 (or so) of cake cubes, then 1/3 coffee, then the other half of the cream cheese mixture. Add the last of the cake and coffee, then top with the whipped cream mixture. If desired, toss another handful of chocolate chips on top for a pleasing finish. Refrigerate until serving. For best flavor, make 24-48 hours ahead of time.

Note: I have cut the sugar in half from this and no one can tell! The flavor is so rich in and of itself, it doesn't need the extra sugar!
