Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Remove foil baking cups.
  3. In small bowl, beat 4 oz (½ cup) of the mascarpone cheese, ¼ cup of the powdered sugar and ½ teaspoon of the coconut extract with whisk until smooth; set aside.
  4. In large bowl, beat remaining 12 oz (1½ cups) mascarpone cheese, the chocolate spread, remaining ½ cup powdered sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon coconut extract with electric mixer on medium speed 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Spoon about 2 tablespoons chocolate mixture into each cookie cup. Top with 1 teaspoon mascarpone mixture; sprinkle with toasted coconut. Store covered in refrigerator.
