How to Make Caramel Praline Ice Cream Cupcakes

If you are looking for a fun and easy dessert to make this summer, these Caramel Praline Ice Cream Cupcakes are the perfect recipe. They are no bake and can be made ahead of time!

To start, make the caramel sauce. Measure sugar into a saucepan and heat over medium-low heat. Stir until the sugar clumps together and starts to turn golden.

1. Preparing the Crust

A no-bake crust, a scoop of Caramel Praline Ice Cream and whipped cream is all it takes to make these easy desserts. Serve them as a sweet treat or as a gift to celebrate special occasions!

These Ice Cream Cupcakes are the perfect summer dessert. They are easy to prepare and can be made ahead of time so you can enjoy them when the mood strikes!

To make the praline, you need to caramelize sugar. You can do this in a pan with medium-low heat but you need to be careful and keep stirring the sugar to prevent it from burning. Once you see specks of brown color and it has melted, stir in nuts and butter to coat them with caramel.

It is important to do this process quickly or you risk burning the nuts! It may take a few minutes before the entire batch of sugar turns brown but you must mix it with the spatula only once.

2. Preparing the Frosting

If you are looking for an easy summer dessert these Caramel Praline Ice Cream Cupcakes are sure to please! This recipe combines a no-bake Oreo crust, praline pecan ice cream, whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel.

Start by preparing the frosting by whipping the cream and condensed milk together. This can be done using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or hand-held electric beaters.

Next, heat the brown sugar on low-medium heat until it caramelizes and starts to form specks of brown color. Stir very gently at this stage to avoid burning the sugar.

When the sugar has browned, remove it from the heat and add the butter to the mixture. Stir the entire time until it is melted and well combined. This may take a minute or so of vigorous stirring. Lay out the pecans on a tray to cool and harden before breaking them into pieces that you can use in the ice cream.

3. Filling the Cupcakes

The perfect summer dessert made with an Oreo crust, Caramel Praline Ice Cream and whipped cream! No bake and easy to make ahead.

To make these cupcakes, start by lining a muffin pan with liners. Add a layer of crushed cookies to the bottom of each liner.

Once the liners are filled, fill each liner with a generous scoop of Blue Bunny Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt Ice Cream. Press the ice cream down into each cupcake to pack it in tightly and then place them back in the freezer to firm up.

When ready to serve, remove the liners and top with more ice cream. They are delicious served immediately or if they need to be stored, they can stay in the freezer for a few hours until they harden again.

4. Garnishing

Adding a dash of panache to these cupcakes is a simple matter of topping them with caramelized bananas. I used a small saute pan to do the trick but you could easily use a grill pan or even a skillet. Just be sure to watch them closely or you might end up with a mess.

The best part is that these are so easy to make that you can make them ahead of time, which makes them the perfect summer dessert. So go ahead and bake a batch of these cupcakes and enjoy them as the centerpiece of your next dessert party! If you want to take things to the next level, serve them on a decorated plate garnished with the right ingredients. You may even want to put them on the front of your refrigerator or freezer for extra presentation effect. Good luck! You’ll be surprised how impressed your guests are. I’m sure they’ll be telling you about these for the rest of their lives.
