Several months ago we had a pot luck at the house and I made the best cupcakes ever. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cupcakes! They were the easiest thing to make and just perfect for any occasion, especially for the summer when you have a BBQ outside with the family. It is perfect to hand out to the guests. I made the cake with chocolate batter and then a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Purely delightful! Then top it off with some chocolate chips and you got yourself a delicious mint chocolate chip ice cream cupcakes!
I made my batter using Chocolate Cake. You can either buy the store box or make your own chocolate cake from scratch. Either or will do! Then I bought a tub of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream or any variety ice cream you like. After that, I made my own Whipped Cream Frosting. And there you go… Now you got yourself some delicious cupcakes! Enjoy!
Cake part: chocolate cake mix (store bought)
Ice Cream: Blue Bell or Ben & Jerry’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Whipped Cream Frosting: 1 ½ cups heavy cream, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/2 cup powdered sugar.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put cupcake liners into the muffin tins and measure out about 1 Tbsp. of batter into each liner. Bake for about 15 minutes. Do not take the cupcakes out of the pan just yet.
Once cooled, scoop some of your softened ice cream on top of the cake until it reached the top of the liners. Place it in the freezer and freeze until the ice cream is hardened.
While the cupcakes are in the freezer, make the whipped cream frosting. Pour the chilled whipping cream into the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat the cream until soft peaks form. Lightly pour the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and beat until soft peaks form. Do not over beat.
Right before serving top the whipped cream frosting and add the chocolate chips!
We devour it before I could take a picture of the actual cupcakes. So the only pictures I have is when I took it out of the freezer and when I put whipped cream frosting on top. Sorry! But I do plan to make some soon, so I will definitely post more pictures up soon or maybe do another post on a different ice cream flavor. Thank you for reading!
