Gradually add mixture to softened cream cheese, mixing until well blended.  Stir in Creme de cacao and brandy. Chill until slightly thickened.

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.  Gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating until meringue is stiff.  Fold egg whites and whipped cream into dessert.  

Wrap a 3-inch collar of foil around top of 1 1/2-quart souffle dish. Secure with tape. Pour mixture into dish.  Chill until firm.  Remove foil collar before serving.  Serves 8 to 10.
