Funfetti Ice Cream Cupcakes

This is a perfect summer picnic treat.
It's like a cupcake, in a cupcake liner, but it's ice cream.  It tastes like a cupcake though.

If we're being honest...

I'm running out of ice cream ideas.

Some people, apparently, like to bake up treats everyday.  Not me!  I'm all about how I can get those treats into my mouth (which is perched on the couch) as soon as possible.  Baking takes time.  And, usually, you want people around to share those baked goods with.  Ice cream lasts forever in the freezer.  (As long as I'm not around to eat it.)

So if I spend the extra 15 minutes making an ice cream treat one day, I can have my treat all week long, in less than 30 seconds.  Because that's how long it takes to scoop into a bowl.

I am above eating out of the container.  I have my limits.

Funfetti Ice Cream Cupcakes
makes 20 ice cream cupcakes

1 container (1.5 quart) vanilla ice cream
1 cup dry Funfetti cake mix
Colored frosting and sprinkles (for that "fun" look)

In a large mixing bowl, let the ice cream soften.  Fold in the dry cake mix.  Re-freeze.  Scoop into cupcake liners and re-freeze again.  Decorate with frosting, sprinkles, whatever floats your boat.  Store in the freezer until ready to serve.
