  4. Press about 2 tablespoons into the bottom of each cup of a 12-cup muffin pan.
  5. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium speed, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
  7. Mix in the remaining 1 1/4 cups sugar on low speed, then gradually mix in the lime peel, lime juice, rum and chopped mint.
  8. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  9. Fold into cream cheese mixture.
  10. Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly among the muffin cups; smooth over tops.
