I love tiramisu, but sometimes when I'm entertaining, I like to stick to desserts that guests can easily pick up and eat--no utensils required! Perfect for a party, the flavors of tiramisu really shine through in these cupcakes. Sweet, but complex with an espresso and mascarpone frosting, these are sure to become a new favorite treat. I use box cake mix to make it a bit easier for party prep, but of course feel free to make the cake mix from scratch!

Ingredients

    For The Cupcakes:

  • One 15.25-ounce box yellow cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sweet marsala wine
  • For The Frosting:

  • Two 6-ounce containers mascarpone cheese
  • One 8-ounce block cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder (for dusting)

Instructions

  1. This recipe originally appeared on Giada Entertains: Big Hair Rocker Party.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 18 muffin cups with cupcake liners.

For the cupcakes:

  1. Combine the cake mix, eggs, water, oil and marsala in a large bowl. Using a hand held mixer, beat on medium speed until combined, about 2 minutes. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 of the way to the top (about 3 tablespoons). Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

For the frosting:

  1. While the cupcakes are cooling, combine the mascarpone, cream cheese, espresso powder, sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Using a handheld mixer, beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Divide the frosting evenly on the cupcakes and spread over the tops. Dust with cocoa powder and serve. Store in the refrigerator.
