Prep Time



Total Time






slices (1/4 inch thick) frozen (thawed) pound cake (from 10-oz package)
cup water
1 1/2
teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 1/2
teaspoons rum extract
container (8 oz) mascarpone cheese
cup powdered sugar
cup whipping cream
oz semisweet baking chocolate
espresso coffee beans, if desired
  1. Line 24 mini muffin cups with petit four paper cups. Cut 2 (1 1/4-inch) rounds from each cake slice. Place 1 cake round in bottom of each cup.
  2. In small bowl, mix water, coffee granules and 1/2 teaspoon of the rum extract. Drizzle about 1/2 teaspoon of the coffee mixture over cake in each muffin cup. Set aside.
  3. In medium bowl, beat cheese, powdered sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon rum extract with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. In another medium bowl, beat whipping cream on high speed until soft peaks form. On low speed, beat cheese mixture into whipped cream. Spoon or pipe a rounded tablespoon whipped cream mixture into each cup, covering cake.
  4. Grate semisweet chocolate over each cup. Top each with coffee bean. Refrigerate at least 4 hours to blend flavors. Store covered in refrigerator.
