Drumstick Cheesecake Cups #SummerDessertWeek

These Drumstick Cheesecake Cups have a vanilla ice cream cheesecake base topped with chocolate shell, chopped peanuts, and a mini cone.

“This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions, bad grammar, and overuse of emoji’s are 100% mine.”

For this particular post I used Dixie Crystals Sugar which I received for free to use in this recipe but no financial compensation was provided.

I’ve been participating in Summer Dessert Week since it started in 2017.

It’s a celebration of all things sweet during the summertime.

We don’t get any compensation for it other than some items from sponsors.

I signed up years ago to force myself to get creative during the summer and to have fun.

Full confession, I find the summer uninspiring usually.

Give me fall baking any day. 🙂

But ever since participating in the Summer Dessert Week it has helped get those summertime creative juices flowing.

We are only required to do two recipes for the week.

But as always, I will be participating in all six days.

So that is a full week of all new recipes!

I start Summer Dessert Week off with these Drumstick Cheesecake Cups.

They are a tribute to the Drumstick Ice Cream Cone.

The original.

With vanilla ice cream, chocolate, peanuts, and a sugar cone.

Except my cheesecake acts as the ice cream.

It has actual melted ice cream as well as vanilla soft serve in the mix.

Then topped with magic shell and peanuts.

With a mini cone on top.

If you cannot find the mini cones you can just crush some sugar cone and sprinkle it on top.

P.S. It’s a great day to buy my cookbook Holy Sweet!

Drumstick Cheesecake Cups


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 8 ounces, Mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted vanilla ice cream (measure when melted)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 TBSP flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered vanilla soft serve mix
  • 1 bottle Chocolate Magic Shell
  • 3/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • 12 mini sugar cones or crushed sugar cones


Preheat oven to 275F.

Line muffin a muffin tin with cupcake liners (preferably white).

Using a stand mixer, beat cream cheese, Mascarpone cheese, and sugar on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating for about 1 minutes. Scrape down the bowl after each addition.

Add the melted ice cream cream, beat until incorporated.

Mix in the flour and powdered vanilla soft serve mix and mix until fully combined.

Divide the cheesecake batter evenly among the 12 paper liners. It will be about a TBSP each.

With the back of a spoon even out the top so that that it covers the whole bottom of the cupcake liner.

Bake for 22 minutes, rotating half way through.

Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature.

Chill in fridge in muffin tins for 1 hour.

Remove the cheesecake cups from fridge and squeeze about 2 TBSP Chocolate Magic shell on one of the cups.

Immediately at the nuts and place the mini cone in the center of the cheesecake cup. If you can’t find the mini cones just use some crushed sugar cone.

Repeat with all 12 cheesecake cups.

Place back in fridge for at least 3 hours.
