There are many things I love in the summer, but a few of my favorites are ice cream and doing fun things with my kids! This project combined both of those elements. It’s a fun Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcake recipe that is perfect to make with your kids. They can help decorate the cupcakes (and of course help eat them as well!). These would be great for a summertime party!

Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes

These are easy to make! They just use a box mix that is fancied up a little and then they are topped of course with your favorite sundae toppings!


Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes Recipe:


  • 1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix
  • 1 5.9 oz. box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 C sour cream
  • 1 C vegetable oil
  • ½ C water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1Tbsp vanilla



Combine the above ingredients and mix until smooth. The batter will be fairly thick.

Spoon into 24 paper lined muffin tins.

Bake for 18-22 minutes (err on the side of shorter-I do 18 minutes exactly) at 350 degrees



Frost with butter cream frosting:

  • 3 sticks of softened butter
  • 4-6 C powdered sugar
  • About 1/3 cup of milk


Pipe the frosting on to your cupcake generously:



Drizzle with hot fudge. I made my own hot fudge using this recipe. You can also just buy pre-made hot fudge.

Sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles and top with whipped cream and a cherry. (Don’t top with the whipped cream until you are ready to serve, or put them straight in the fridge.
