12 pre-baked cupcakes, any flavor
1 quart ice cream
Wax paper or aluminum foil
Canned white frosting
Chocolate chips (optional)
Scoop out the center of each cupcake. Eat the centers or give them to the birds.
Fill each cupcake with ice cream. Freeze the cupcakes overnight until the ice cream is solid.
The next day, remove the cupcakes from the freezer. You may want to remove only a few at a time so the others will stay cold in the freezer.
Place the cupcakes upside down on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or aluminum foil.
Spread frosting on each cupcake to make it resemble a small white igloo. Make vertical and horizontal lines in the frosting with a wooden pick to make it look like blocks of ice. You may want to add chocolate chips to outline a door.
Keep cupcakes in the freezer until ready to serve.
