Not even Hollywood Hot Moms can resist ice cream sundaes! Gwyneth Paltrow raves about them, Trista Sutter makes them for Father’s Day, Kelly Ripa builds them for charity and Katie Holmes treats daughter Suri to them for a late night snack. Ice cream sundaes are clearly a hit with Hollywood’s hottest moms.
While we all love sundaes, sometimes you need a dessert that you can prepare ahead of time and bring along to those fun summer time parties. The solution? Ice cream sundae cupcakes! These darling treats, inspired by Living Locurto, look exactly like ice cream sundaes, but are made of cupcakes and frosting. Whip up a batch for your next party, and you will be the celebrity!
You will need the following items:
1. A batch of your favorite cupcakes (approx 24), baked and cooled. You could also pick up a batch of un-frosted cupcakes from your favorite bakery.
2. Melting Chocolate, such as Wilton Candy Melts, Candiquick coating or a chocolate almond bark. Please note that using chocolate chips will not create the same results, as the chocolate will not set up. Most grocery stores carry at least one form of a chocolate disc or bark, and you can always find some at your local Michael’s or Hobby Lobby.
4. Candy to use as your “cherry on top”. Bubble gum and M&M’s are both great options.
