So, the beginning of this month marked the beginning of the annual Ice Cream Cupcake competition by Cupcake Project and Scoopalicious. I wanted to make a couple of different for my friends to try to see which ones are best. Since this is the only week I'm basically going to see my friends who tried my first ones, I have to make all my best combinations this week.
I started this week off with relaxing since I just finished finals, but I have started to get back into baking again.
This is my first ice cream cupcake to try. This was inspired by the Ben and Jerry's ice cream flavor Half-Baked.
It starts out with a brownie cupcake [recipe below].
I added chocolate ice cream and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.
Then I topped it off with some homemade whipped cream.
It's a great alternative to the real ice cream flavor and my friends and I thought that they were an AMAZING combination.
