  • In small saucepan, combine 1 bottle coffee drink and the 1/3 cup sugar. Sprinkle gelatin over top; let stand 5 minutes.

  • Heat gelatin mixture in saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until gelatin and sugar are dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Place cream cheese in a large bowl. On low speed, beat until smooth. Slowly beat in remaining bottle coffee drink and gelatin mixture until evenly blended. Gently pour mixture over crust. Refrigerate until mixture just begins to set, about 2 hours.

  • Coarsely chop the remaining 5 cookies. Sprinkle evenly over the cheese mixture in pan; lightly press the crumbs down into the cheese mixture. Refrigerate overnight to set.
