  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee or you can use cold brewed coffee, see step 1
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream may substitute whipped topping
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6-8 unfrosted baked and cooled vanilla cupcakes
  • Cocoa for dusting


  • Stir instant coffee into hot water and let cool. Alternately, you can use cold leftover coffee.
  • Beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form using a stand or a hand mixer. Set aside. (Alternately you can use one 8 ounce tub of whipped topping.)
  • Beat cream cheese with powdered sugar until smooth, then mix in vanilla and 1-2 tablespoons of coffee to taste. Fold in whipped cream (or whipped topping, if you're using).
  • Slice each cupcake in half or thirds, depending on the size of your cups or how big you want each tiramisu to be. Place one cupcake slice in the bottom of a clear plastic disposable cup. Brush it with remaining coffee, then top with some of the tiramisu cream. Dust it with cocoa, then repeat for 1-2 more layers. Dust the top with cocoa.
  • Store in refrigerator until ready to serve. To take these to-go, wrap the tops with plastic wrap. They make a great party treat or easy potluck item.
