It’s Friday! Woot Woot! 🙂 Let’s celebrate the beginning of the weekend with these Ice Cream Cupcakes! They are so yummy and super easy to make. Such a fun treat for summer!

The bottom is an Oreo cookie crust, and the ice cream ‘cupcake’ can be whatever your favorite ice cream is! I went with vanilla because my Hubby loves it. I topped them off with Hot Fudge and a dollop of whip cream and they were gone in no time! 🙂
