Warm the pancakes according to the package directions.
- 2 packages frozen pancakes (12 pancakes per package)*
1 8-ounce package cream cheese - softened
1 8-ounce package mascarpone cheese
2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, mascarpone cheese, and confectioners' sugar until well combined. In a small bowl, dissolve the coffee granules in the water then add to the cheese mixture; mix well.
Place a pancake on a plate then dollop with cheese mixture; repeat the layers two more times, ending with a dollop of the cheese mixture topping the stack. Repeat with the remaining pancakes and cheese mixture. Sprinkle with cocoa and serve immediately.
*Note From Mr Breakfast:
Rather than using frozen pancakes, I would recommended making the pancakes from scratch. It's super easy and pretty quick. Here's one of my favorite basic pancake recipes.
Turn simple pancakes into a treat worthy of the best Italian restaurants in just minutes!
Mr Breakfast would like to thank darlin for this recipe.
