Preheat oven and prepare cake mix according to package directions. Line muffin tin with cupcake liners.
Pour one tablespoon of prepared cake batter into each muffin tin; bake for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool.
Spread ice cream on top of each cupcake. Place in freezer for 3-4 ours to set.
Use a piping bag to pipe whipped topping (I used Cool Whip) or frosting on top of cupcakes.
Garnish with mini chocolate chips.
