I created this recipe as a ‘thank you’ for a friend who loves Tiramisu and chocolate. It has all the makings of pure decadence – chocolate, whipped cream, raspberry and creamy mascarpone cheese! Using a cake mix makes it fast and simple!


  • Chocolate Cupcakes
  • 1 box Chocolate cake mix
  • 1 Tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 18 lady fingers
  • 1/4 cup brewed vanilla coffee (or substitute regular coffee with 1/2 tsp vanilla)
  • 2 teaspoons Kahlua
  • Filling/Topping
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 3 Tablespoons Kahlua
  • 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 Tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
  • 4 Tablespoons piping gel
  • 3 cups whipping cream
  • Garnish:
  • sprinkled chocolate sugar or cocoa


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake tin with large cupcake liners.
  2. Make Cupcakes: Mix cake mix, as per directions and add 1 Tblsp instant coffee granules to mixture.
  3. Mix coffee and Kahlua together. Dip each lady finger in the coffee mixture and turn to coat . Break each lady finger into 4 pieces and put in bottom of each cupcake liner. Bake as per cake mix instructions.
  4. Make Filling /Topping: In a medium mixing bowl, beat mascarpone cheese, raspberry jam, condensed milk and Kahlua together.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat whipping cream to soft peaks, then add white granulated sugar and piping gel. Beat to stiff peaks.
  6. Fold whipping cream mixture into mascarpone cheese mixture.
  7. Fit a pastry bag with a #7 or #10 tip and fill bag with raspberry mascarpone whipped cream mixture. Insert tip into bottom of cupcake (make a hole with a sharp knife if necessary) and fill for about 2 seconds or until you feel the weight shift slightly in the palm of your hand and the cupcake filling out.
  8. Set filled cupcake on a plate. Using a 1M tip, on the top of the cupcake, pipe in a circular motion (from the outside to the inside). Sprinkle chocolate sugar (or cocoa) on top of cupcake. Serve and enjoy
