Summer has officially begun in our town however, we have tons of birthday's coming up this season. So, a few months ago, we made a recipe for, Chocolate Sundae Cupcakes--which by the way was a huge hit at a summer party we threw. With that being said, we're bringing it back to satisfy your sweet tooth and enjoy the best of both worlds. There's literally no ice cream here, but the ingredients combined tastes just like it is--amazing. Let's begin.

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups of All-Purpose Flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup of Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp of Salt
  • 1 stick of Butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups of Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsps of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup of Milk, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tsp of Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda

Hot Fudge Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp of Butter
  • 1/2 bag of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/3 cup of Heavy Cream


  • 1 pack of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 4 tbsps of Butter
  • 1/3 cup of Heavy Cream
  • 4 cups of Powdered Sugar

Step 1: Video Demonstration

Step 2:

Cream together, 1 stick of Butter, and 1 1/4 cup of Granulated Sugar.

Step 3:

Now add 2 tsps of Pure Vanilla Extract.

Step 4:

Drop in 2 eggs, however, watch the video above for the proper way to add :)

[ mix well and set aside ]

Step 5:

Whisk together, 1 1/4 cups of All-Purpose Flour, 1/2 cup of Cocoa Powder, and finally 1 tsp of Salt.

Step 6:

Now bring back over the wet ingredients, we'll be alternating between the dry one we just did, and 1 cup of Milk. Watch video for demonstration.

Step 7: Preheat Your Oven to 350 Degrees

Mix well, until their are no lumps left-- so much easier with a cake mixer.

Step 8: One More Step Left for the Cupcake Mix

In a small bowl, mix 1 1/2 tsps of Red Wine Vinegar, and 1 1/2 tsps of Baking Soda--now watch that thing bubble like you're mixing up potion or something. Once you see the magic, dump it right on in and mix well.

Step 9:

Now, lightly spray your cupcake pan, and add the mix. Make sure to not overflow! And then stick it in the preheated oven for about 18 to 20 minutes or so, or until there's no more goo left. This really depends on your stoves temperature so start watching it around the 15 min mark. And remember to use a toothpick as your guide.

Step 10: Hot Fudge Ingredients

While that's baking, let's made the fudge. In a small pan, on low heat, mix together:

  • 1 tbsp of Butter
  • 1/2 bag of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/3 cup of Heavy Cream

Watch video for full demonstration

Step 11: Back to the Cupcakes

The cupcakes should be done, please remove them from the pan for additional cooling.

-- Be careful, their still pretty hot.

Step 12: Icing Ingredients

For the icing, cream together:

  • 1 pack of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 4 tbsps of Butter
  • 1/3 cup of Heavy Cream
  • 4 cups of Powdered Sugar

Step 13: Toppings (Icing First)

Once the cupcakes aren't hot anymore, add the icing. You can use what I used, or try a spoon to swirl it around.

Step 14: Additional Toppings

Once the icing is on, why not top them off with some chopped Hazelnuts, Hot Fudge, Sprinkles, and a Cherry. It really doesn't matter what order you do this in, just make sure that the cherry is put on last. We show in the video above how to add :)!

Step 15: Conclusion

    No problem! We actually tested it out with apple cider first and then tried red wine, but learned that the red wine really bursted in well with the flavors. Thanks for stopping by :)!!!
