It’s so hot this summer, and it seems like this heat wave is not going to weaken any time soon. All I want is to sit in the air conditioner all day, make and eat frozen things. Even my regular meals change in the summer – I prefer fresh salads and less hot dishes, summer fish or tofu with vegetables rather than boiling hot dishes that are too heavy to deal with.
And, of course, this also affects the desserts I make. Mostly I like to make frozen desserts or cool ice cream cakes – just like these next ice cream cupcakes. These cupcakes are the ultimate chocolate indulgence for the summer and it is also a great activity with the children during the summer break. These ice cream cupcakes are so easy to make; individual chocolate cakes topped with ice cream scoops, chocolate and roasted coconut for decoration.
This is definitely one of my favorites summer desserts that children will crave madly. Of course, you can serve the cupcakes with any kind of ice cream that you love according to personal taste and decorate any melted chocolate and topping you like.
