Chocolate Pepperment Ice Cream Cupcakes

So it's a peppermint cupcake with chocolate ice cream and some espresso whipped cream.

I know, personally I think that the flavor combo was weird at first, but my boyfriend told me that it would be the perfect flavor combination.

Well, it all started at the beginning of the month, when I found the Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup. I live for competition. It makes my life complete. Well, one Sunday, I went out with some friends (Alex and Macky) and I decided to get some ice cream for this competition. I bought the EXTREME! Moose tracks. It was pretty yummy and I decided to make a cupcake to go with it. A chocolate cupcake would have been TOO much while I didnt want to be too plain and go with a vanilla cupcake. Instead, I decided to ask around. I finally decided on the Sprinkle's Peppermint Cupcake. I had used the recipe as printed, but I added some extra peppermint and vanilla extract. I also subbed the regular milk with soy milk. It was light and really good.

Being OCD like I am. I tested it out with no cupcake liner = didnt work so well.
Then tested it with the cupcake liners. two at a time. That's how I baked the rest of them. I mean it was time consuming, but it was fun baking and watching Food Network at the same time.

I have finally finished the cupcakes and the ice cream part and end result of those parts had two different results. Part of them were really ice creamy like right out of the freezer, the rest of them were a soupy mess =(. But freezing them overnight in a friend's freezer since I have no room made all the difference. I decided to top these off with an espresso whipped cream from here. But I kind of ran out, and then I made some chocolate whipped cream (not pictured). Regardless, they were still pretty good.
These are my pictures...
Thanks for Dmitriy for the pictures again even though it was during finals! <3
These came out really beautifully!

This is my entry into the Ice Cream Cupcake Roundup!

  1. Thanks for joining the roundup! Your cupcake liners are so cute! Isn't it funny how sometimes flavor combos that you never think will work end up going great together!

  2. Oh, those weren't my cupcake liners; I just colored some of the batter green and dripped it in the batter. That's why there's different part of green.

  3. I was wondering whether it was the liners or the recipe. I love the green! these look so yummy! wow!


  4. haha yeah, just the recipe. I just dripped some green batter and it came out beautifully.

  5. Hi, I was wondering if you have the recipe for this saved? Since it's been a while, I'm not surprised that the recipe in the link has been replaced with a different recipe, but I really want to try yours! Thanks :)



Thanks for your comments!
