Mocha Madness

Directions

  1. In a large bowl combine 2 tablespoons hot whipping cream and 1 tablespoon espresso powder or instant coffee powder; stir until dissolved. Add one 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened; 1/4 cup butter, softened; and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in 2 1/2 to 3 cups powdered sugar to make a frosting of spreading consistency. Using half of the frosting, spread a thin layer onto 18 large soft sugar or chocolate cookies. Using a sieve, sift 1 to 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder lightly over tops of cookies. Beat 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder into the remaining frosting. (If necessary, beat in a little additional whipping cream to make a frosting of piping consistency.) Spoon cocoa frosting into a decorating bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe frosting stars in centers and around the edges of the cookies. If desired, garnish with whole or chopped chocolate-covered espresso beans.
  2. Using half of the frosting, spread a thin layer onto 18 cookies. Using a sieve, sift 2 teaspoons cocoa powder lightly over tops of cookies. Top with the final 18 cookies.
  3. Beat 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder into the remaining frosting. (If necessary, beat in a little additional whipping cream to make a frosting of piping consistency.)
  4. Spoon cocoa frosting into a decorating bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe frosting stars in centers and around the edges of the cookies.
  5. If desired, garnish with whole or chopped chocolate-covered espresso beans.
