As the hot and humid days of summer settle in, we’ve never been so thankful for sprinklers, water parks and popsicles. We love Canadian summers as much as anyone, but sometimes you just need to chill out for a while.
Enter Carolyn from The Crafty Penguin with a brilliant idea for a summery dessert that will help you beat the heat while it tickles your taste buds: Ice Cream Cupcakes. Yes, ice cream AND cupcakes, together in one delicious treat. What could be better?
What you’ll need:
• Brownie batter (whether from a recipe or a mix)
• Chocolate ice cream
• Vanilla ice cream
• Strawberry ice cream
You’ll find the full recipe and instructions (complete with step-by-step photos) for this dessert over at The Crafty Penguin site. We love that you can easily customize this recipe with your family’s favourite ice cream flavours, so it’s different every time. And if you’re feeling really festive, you can add a few sprinkles on top. We’d warn you about the melting factor—but we’re pretty sure they won’t last long enough for that to be a problem!
