I don’t know about y’all but I’m a huge lover of ice cream!  Sometimes the boyfriend brings me home ice cream when I’m having a bad day and it cheers up my mood instantly.  Now that we are FINALLY in the warmer months here in the Northeast I’m even more excited to eat ice cream on those nice summer nights.  I also love sundaes and adding things to my ice cream.  That’s why for today’s post I wanted to do something a little different.  I wanted to make ice cream sundaes, but on cupcakes.  It’s the perfect mix, and the best of both worlds!

I made funfetti cupcakes and added Blue Bunny® PB 'N Cones™ Ice cream, Smucker's Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream topping and Reddi-Wip® original whipped topping on top as the sundae portion.  Now really funny story about the cupcake recipe.  I had made them first and completely forgot they were in the oven so they were in the oven for about an extra 20 minutes (I went and took a shower and forgot to put on a timer) so over one of the recent weekends I had went upstate for a mini vacation with my boyfriend’s family and his sister helped me make the cupcakes and this time they didn’t stay in the oven for an extra 20 minutes haha.  She was watching them like a hawk!  I got all of my ingredients at Walmart.  I’m not going to lie either, when I tried the Blue Bunny® PB 'N Cones™ Ice cream by itself (for research purposes of course lol) I fell in love.  It has such an interesting taste to it and the cones in the ice cream make it that much better.

Anyway, let’s get into the recipe/tutorial, shall we?

*Recipe adapted from Brown Eyed Baker


Topping (instead of icing)

Funfetti Cupcakes
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temp cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and mix together on low speed.  With the mixer on low add the butter a few cubes at a time.  The mixture should resemble coarse sand.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time on low speed.  Slowly pour the milk and vanilla and mix until everything is combined.  If you need to, scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure everything is mixing properly together.  Now, gently stir in the sprinkles.
  4. Fill each liner (24 cupcakes worth) about two-thirds of the way.  Bake for 15-20 minutes (and make sure to set a timer and NOT take a shower in between like I did the first time around) until the centers are not liquidy. 
  5. Make sure to cool your cupcakes until they are room temperature.  You will be adding ice cream as an icing so you don’t want the ice cream melting before you can even enjoy the cupcakes in their entirety.
  6. Before you scoop the Blue Bunny® PB 'N Cones™ Ice cream, make sure to microwave your Smucker's Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream topping so that it’s already melted and ready to serve (in case you didn’t check like myself it’s hard as a rock and has to be microwaved haha!).
  7. Once you microwave your desired amount of Smucker's Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream topping you will be starting with your Blue Bunny® PB 'N Cones™ Ice cream.  Scoop your ice cream and put about one scoop on each cupcake.  Take your Reddi-Wip® original whipped topping and make a little dollop (in between eating some yourself because let’s be honest when it comes to whipped cream I can’t control myself), then top with your Smucker's Hot Fudge Spoonable Ice Cream topping
  8. Voila, dessert is served!

Now, since the boyfriend’s sister helped me, I just had to take pictures with her and eat some cupcakes, although we did eat the ice cream off first because we loved it haha.  I mean if it was a team effort baking, it HAS to be a team effort in taste testing!
