Summer is coming, and what better way to celebrate than with some delicious, home-made, ice cream cupcakes? Fair warning – this recipe takes time, but as most of it is just waiting for the ice cream to set, there is not a lot of actual work involved, and the end result is definitely worth the wait! This also means that you can make these cakes well in advance and leave them in the freezer until you are ready to decorate and serve them. They are the perfect addition to a summer bbq or garden party, for some sweet relief on a hot, sunny day.

Who is the mood for a cupcake milkshake? Before you ask, “a cupcake WHAT?” rest assured that they are exactly what they sound like. A cupcake (unwrapped of course) tossed into a blender along with heavy cream and an ice cream cone that is blended into a milk-shake-like consistency. Another version includes a cupcake, a scoop of ice cream and some milk. Either way, the results are a tasty, thick, cake-flavored milkshake served with sprinkles and a smile. Yum.

Are you ready for a no-bake cupcake? Actually, make that a no-bake ICE CREAM cupcake. Sounds yummy, right? Not to mention the fact that these are easy to make, since the ingredients consist of non-frosted chocolate cake, the ice cream flavor of your choice, whipped cream (although you could make your own as directed by the recipe) and sprinkles. A little ingenuity, some patiences, and a few cooking tools are all that separate you from these sweet treats.

Root Beer Float Cupcakes are cute little imitations of the popular ice cream desserts. These are cupcakes that are made with root beer in the mix. It is a very subtly flavored cupcake that is easily made more pronounced by substituting Root Beer Schnapps for the root beer. The float similarity continues with a small scoop of ice cream surrounded by whipped cream and topped with a maraschino cherry garnish.

This Ice Cream Cupcake Peanut Butter Cups recipe has a lot of steps. It looks daunting. You may be tempted to move on, but don’t. The amazing end result makes all the effort, which really isn’t that much, worth it. This multi-layered indulgence is worth the “oohs” and “ahs” that will ensue at any gathering. The combined flavors of chocolate, peanut butter flavored ice cream, and chocolate cupcake are a consistent fan favorite and you will be too for making them.

Cool, savory and sweet combined, this banana ice cream cashew chocolate cupcake contains several intense flavors that astonishingly enough, mingle harmoniously. Starting with a flourless cashew chocolate cake base, then topped with banana ice cream, white chocolate caramel (made from the simple combination of white chocolate and coconut oil) and then salted hot fudge and several carmelized banana slices, this treat is as complex as it is tasty. The only caveat: it must be eaten with a spoon!
