CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
I have used store made cupcakes, and homemade cupcakes.
I use walnuts, I like walnuts and I think it has a better taste then pecans.
I also used difference ice cream, but the chocolate chip is my favorite. Also Pistachio is good. If used Pistachio, use Pistachio nuts instead of walnuts. GOOOOOD!!
