This is a fun dessert to make and serve! These hot fudge sundae cupcakes are like having an ice cream cake in a cupcake. It’s a cupcake filled with hot fudge, layered with ice cream, topped off with a brownie truffle. It’s got all the delicious flavors of ice cream, cake, brownies, and hot fudge.
My sweet daughter knows I am addicted to all things Michael’s, Joann’s, Wilton, and Hobby Lobby so for Christmas she gave me a gift card to Michael’s. I stocked up on more Wilton supplies. I bought these cute Wilton cupcake liners, they are lined with foil and larger than regular sized cupcake liners, so that makes them perfect for holding ice cream and a truffle.

For the ice cream I used a WILTON OPEN STAR TIP 1M. To fill the cupcakes with hot fudge I used a WILTON TIP #230. It’s long so that you can stick it down into a cupcake and fill it. For a tutorial on how to use a pastry bag with these tips check out my post How To Assemble A Pastry Bag. I love using these tips, they make the cupcakes look like you spent all day decorating them, when actually it only takes 5 minutes. It’s all in the tips!
For the brownie truffles I baked a regular boxed brownie mix, rolled some up in a ball and dipped them in wilton candy melts or you can use candiquik. I bought a set of Wilton Candy Melt Dipping Tools that I use for dipping truffles. It makes it a lot easier for dipping and dripping off excess chocolate.
For the drizzle I fill a small plastic baggie with a small amount of melted candy and cut off the very tip of one corner of the baggie. It works perfect!
