Tiramisu Cupcakes

My in-laws inspired me to put together this recipe.  If you even mention the word around them, they perk up.  What?  Tiramisu?  Where??  Right here!

This cupcake is rich, deliciously combining the flavors of coffee and cream cheese…and of course, garnished wish some dark chocolate.
