Ice Cream Buttercream Frosting

Author Dorothy Kern

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 12 ounces (about ¾ cup) melted ice cream, any flavor (I used 2 single serving size cups of mint chip)
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cups mini chocolate chips or other garnish to reflect your ice cream flavor

Instructions

  • Using a hand mixture in a large bowl, beat butter and ice cream until lumps are gone. Slowly beat in powdered sugar, starting with 3 cups and working up to 4 depending on the sweetness of your ice cream. Here’s the hard part – chill for at least one hour before frosting cupcakes. Sprinkle with garnish.
