Banana Split Cupcakes
Who doesn't love a delicious Banana Split Sundae in the summer? 🍨 July is National Ice Cream Month and I decided to make some tasty Banana Split inspired cupcakes! Yum!
To make the banana cupcakes you will need:
-1 1/2 cups of flour
-3/4 cup of sugar
-1 tsp of baking powder
-1/2 tsp of baking soda
-1/2 cup of melted butter
-4 mashed bananas
-1/2 ts of vanilla extract
-Chocolate Ganache(or chocolate frosting)
Combine all of the dry ingredients first in a bowl for your banana cupcakes and mix well. Then add your wet ingredients and combine. Place into cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Once the cupcakes are cool the fun part is decorating! I placed vanilla and pink frosting into individual piping bags(cut the tips) and then placed both into a larger piping bag to create a swirl of the two colors to mimic vanilla and strawberry ice cream. You can also use sandwich bags.
Top with either a Chocolate Ganache or just simply melt chocolate frosting slightly to be your fudge of the banana split cupcake. Then sprinkle with some rainbow sprinkles and lastly top with a cherry!
Say whaaatt? Melt-proof ice cream? July is National Ice Cream Month so I wanted to make a unique ice cream inspired treat. This recipe is for very delicious Cheesecake Ice Cream Cones! It is so easy and won't melt like regular ice cream.This is a cute idea for parties and you can get very creative by flavoring the cream cheese filling and decorating the cones.
-8 oz of softened cream cheese
-1 conatiner of thawed Cool Whip
-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
-1/2 cup of powdered sugar
-food coloring(I used pink)
In a bowl blend the cream cheese with half of the container of Cool Whip(reserve the rest), vanilla and powdered sugar. Then mix in a few drops of food coloring. I decided to use pink so that it looks like strawberry "ice cream." Then place the cheesecake filling in a piping bag or you can use a sandwich bag and just cut off the tip. Pipe the cheesecake filling into the sugar cone. Then pipe the Cool Whip that you saved as the whipped cream topping. Lastly decorate with sprinkles and top with a cherry.
