Drunken Tiramisu Dessert Shooters

I had been planning to make some red hot cinnamon Jello shots for one of our holiday parties but never found the time to experiment with a recipe. Anyway, Mr. Rainbow Creek is not a big fan of Jello shots so he was pretty happy when I came up with the idea to do Drunken Tiramisu Shooters instead to take to Missy's for a Christmas night poker game.

These are just a tad more than a dessert. After assembling them I drizzled each one with a little Kahlua and Bailey's Irish Cream, so in other words this is for adult only parties.

Mr. Rainbow Creek didn't turn them down whenever the tray was passed around. He likes his sweets and flavored coffees, and the extra kick from the liqueurs added a little to the festivities.
 They were actually kind of pretty before I smashed them down with the lids to the little plastic Jello shot cups. I used my Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator to pipe the creamy filling in and sprinkled them with chocolate wafer cookie crumbs. If I was doing them at home I would have just refrigerated them without the lids.

Recipe for Drunken Tiramisu Dessert Shooters:

1 8oz pkg Mascarpone Cheese
2 teaspoons instant espresso powder (to be honest I used Folgers Crystals because my store didn't have instant espresso)
1 Tablespoon each Kahlua and Baileys Irish Cream

Mix above ingredients together with electric mixer, set aside.

1 cup heavy cream
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Beat heavy cream in electric mixer with whisk attachment until soft peaks begin to form. Add sugar and vanilla and continue beating until whipped cream consistency is reached.

Fold in the cheese mixture gently until well mixed.

I used a store bought frozen pound cake, thawed and cut into small cubes for the base. Place cake cubes in bowl and sprinkle with a little of the Kahlua and Bailey's. Fill each cup about halfway with cake cubes, pipe a little of the cream mixture on top. Pour a 1/2 and 1/2  mixture of the liqueurs into a measuring cup and drizzle over the top of each filled shot cup. Sprinkle with chocolate cookie crumbs or shaved chocolate for garnish. Chill before serving.
