Root Beer Float Ice Cream Cupcakes

Our family LOVES root beer, so I thought a great family dessert would be root beer float cupcakes. Chocolately root beer cupcakes topped with creamy, frozen root beer sherbet!

The beauty of this recipe is there’s no frosting required, just a scoop of delicious Root Beer Sherbet. The Root Beer Sherbet is simple to make, using just three ingredients! Scoop out a generously sized scoop and place it on top of the cooled cupcakes, instant dessert!

Root Beer Float Ice Cream Cupcakes


3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter

1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup root beer
1/4 cup heavy cream
root beer sherbet


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep a cupcake pan with liners.

In bowl, whisk together the cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until combined.

Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla extract.

Alternate the flour mixture with the root beer and heavy cream until combined.
