Taste Test: PhillySwirl Ice Cream Cupcakes

A little while back, I received a box of ice cream cupcakes by PhillySwirl. I put the box in the freezer and totally forgot about them until I saw them featured on the Today Show. So last week, Yum, Molly, and I cracked open the box. There's nothing fancy or pretentious about these cupcakes. They come in two flavors: chocolate and vanilla. Each cupcake has a layer of cake, a layer of ice cream, a hard chocolate candy coating, a frosting topping, and a sprinkle of jimmies. To see what I thought of these frozen treats,

.

They were absolutely delicious! With its creamy frosting, I preferred the vanilla to the chocolate. Like a blast from elementary school past, the taste is similar to those super-sugary, grocery store cupcakes that come in plastic containers.

The chocolate tasted like a cross between a brownie sundae and a Klondike bar. Both were totally indulgent without being over-the-top sweet.

I especially enjoyed the concept and plan on experimenting with my own ice cream cupcake recipe. Have you tried the PhillySwirl ice cream cupcakes? If so, what did you think?

yummm...those are so tasty. I bought them a few months ago because I LOVE ice cream cake. I'll NEVER buy them again, they're so good I wound up finishing the box in 2 days!!! I wish they'd find a way to package these frozen delights into individual packages

hmmm, they look alright. i don't like fluffy icing like that kind and i hate chocolate coated stuff (hate chocolate in general). i'd prefer to make a homemade version at home without those two things and buy some strawberry icing!
