Doctored Cake Mix cookies made with melted ice cream and butter instead of water and oil.
Sinfully delicious, that’s what these are. I wanted to do something nice for the girls in my dorm who have birthdays, and being a baker, my first thought was cupcakes! I didn’t quite want to make a recipe from scratch; not having much time or resources with school and work.
So, I doctored a cake mix, and it’s still easy and just as good- not like those recipes that have 7-8 other ingredients and it would have been easier just to make the cake mix in the first place. This uses all of the ingredients from the box, but I replaced the oil with an equal amount of butter, and instead of using water, I used ice cream. Yes, I went there- Ice cream in cupcakes.
I didn’t make my own frosting either- I just used a can of duncan hines frosting creations. It was easy, good, and convenient.
These cupcakes are delicious, easy, and perfect when you want to doctor up a cake mix in a pinch! I freeze them unfrosted and pull them out when needed, letting them thaw before frosting.
