We decided to make fried ice cream last year after remembering how much we loved it. (I had only had it once at Los Hermanos when everyone at the table decided to tell the waitress it was my birthday while I was in the bathroom…it wasn’t my birthday…but they brought me fried ice cream and it was absolutely delicious) We were worried about how it would work out but it ended up tasting just the fried ice cream we had! It was so yummy :)
First: make as many ice cream balls as you want and put them in the freezer in an uncovered container for 1 hour. (we just made 2 this time)
Next: In one bowl mix up crushed corn flakes-as many as you think you will need to coat the amount of servings you are making -and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, or more if you like alot of cinnamon. In another bowl mix 1 egg-or more again for how many servings you need to coat-and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Dip the ice cream in the egg mixture and then roll it in the cereal mixture, try to get as much on as you can and then freeze for another hour uncovered. Repeat this step after 1 hour and freeze for about 2 hours or until completely hardened.
Heat Oil in a pan (it is supposed to be 350 degrees but we didn’t have a way to measure that so we just guessed :D ) Place the balls in the pan one at a time for 10-15 seconds, take them out and enjoy!! You can put any toppings you want on them but we just ate them plain and they were so good!
Tips From Kj:
You can experiment with what you use to coat the ice cream. We used regular corn flakes, honey bunches of oats, special k with strawberries….etc. They all are really good and you can even use vanilla wafers, oreos, graham crackers etc. Anything that will coat the ice cream can be used :)
These are great with caramel or chocolate ice cream topping as well.Pin It
