This camping-friendly version of a classic Italian tailoring is so good you’ll probably dream of it. Makes 3 servings


1/3 cup water
2 teaspoons of instant espresso powder
2 tablespoons of Kahlua
1 3.4-ounce pkg. Of instant white chocolate pudding
2/3 cup powdered milk
16 lady fingers
Dark chocolate
Cocoa powder and coffee beans for garnish (optional)

At home: Pack all the ingredients separately.

In the camp: Heat the water to a boil, then mix in the espresso and Kahlua. Rehydrate the milk according to the package, then use it to make pudding according to the package directions. Place six ladyfingers at the bottom of a saucepan; drizzle with half the espresso mixture, then spread half the pudding over it. Repeat to form a second layer. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and use a pocket knife to shave thin strips of chocolate on top and serve. (You can also top with a few whole coffee beans.) Pour into plates or eat it straight from the pot.
