It is fairly easy to make your own Funfetti cupcakes from scratch – just combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, butter, vanilla extract, sour cream and several other ingredients in a bowl. Then dump in one half cup of rainbow sprinkles and stir so that the sprinkles are distributed throughout the batter. Once these treats have baked, you can turn them into sundae cupcakes with the addition of a scoop of vanilla buttercream frosting, a drizzle of chocolate ganache, and some sprinkles.

Ice cream cupcakes are tasty, but have one downside – they melt and quickly get soggy, and thus need to be served and eaten right away. However, if you can make ordinary cupcakes look like sundaes, without using ice cream, you have far more options when it comes to eating and storing them. These sundae cupcakes fall into that category. They are topped with a scooperful of frosting that looks like a scoop of ice cream, and are drizzled with chocolate ganache and a few other toppings. Yummy!

Ice cream is a classic summer treat – but these ice cream topped cupcakes may just take over that honor. These angel food cupcakes (made from a boxed mix – nothing complicated) are topped with ice cream. But, it’s not just ANY ice cream. Rather, it’s vanilla ice cream that has been mixed with either homemade strawberry sauce or homemade blueberry sauce. You can leave one portion of the ice cream unmixed in order to have a batch festive red, white and blue patriotic treats.

Not only are these ice cream cupcakes a great treat to enjoy on a hot summer day, but they are easy to make as well. The cupcake “base” is made from a brownie mix, only poured into a series of cupcake liners instead of a single pan. Once they’ve baked, they are frozen, topped with melted ice cream, and then frozen again. Before serving, toss on some frosting (homemade ganache works well) or a spoonful or two of whipped cream.

Brownie Bottom Ice Cream Cupcakes. That’s right you heard correctly, ice cream cupcakes. Just imagine a miniaturized ice cream cake and wallah, you have ice cream cupcakes. With this recipe we have taken it a step further and added a gooey, chocolaty homemade brownie to the bottom. Not only does it help the cupcake keep its form, the added flavor is to die for. As if there wasn’t enough chocolaty goodness already, they are topped at the end with a creamy chocolate ganache.

Oh what a treat when you can mix two favorite desserts such as you do with this Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes. You start with a chocolate cupcake, (although if vanilla is more your fancy that could surely be substituted) and add a scoop of your favorite flavor of ice cream on top. Lightly drizzle chocolate sauce and a dollop of whipped cream followed by a cherry on top of it all and there you have it; the perfect ice cream sundae cupcake. Add a banana and some pineapple sauce and you have created a banana split cupcake. The possibilities are endless with these ingredients.

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.

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.
