Fried Ice Cream ( Easy Way)

This unbelievable Fried Ice Cream is so easy and amazingly delicious. Vanilla bean ice cream, coated in a buttery cinnamon corn flake, coconut and pecan coating. Then topped off with cool whip, caramel and hot fudge sauce and topped off with a cherry. Omg, are you not drooling over this fried ice cream. A fried ice cream that has everything normal fried ice cream has to offer, but one that doesn’t have all the long frying steps, oily mess that comes along with the real frying of the ice cream. Genius idea. Once I found this recipe, I have loved it ever since..Enjoy!!!!

  • 5 cups corn flakes cereal*( you can replace some of the corn flakes with some shredded coconut or finely chopped pecans)
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Vanilla bean ice cream, (firm enough to shape but just soft enough to scoop)

  • Toppings:

  • Caramel sauce, store bought 
  • Chocolate fudge sauce, store bought 
  • Cool whip 
  • Maraschino Cherries, for top ( or fresh cherry)

  • Directions:

  • 1. Pour cornflakes into a large Ziplog bag, seal bag and use a rolling pin crush the cornflakes. 
  • 2. Melt butter in a non-stick 10-inch fry pan over low-medium heat. Once butter is melted, stir in crushed corn flakes and cinnamon and increase heat slightly. Cook mixture, stirring constantly until golden brown and fragrant (color will deepen and begin to smell lightly toasty and corn flakes should be crisp), about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, pour mixture in a shallow baking dish and allow to cool slightly. Use a fork to break mixture down if desired.
  • 3. Remove ice cream from freezer, scoop out desired serving size (you should be able to get 3 baseball size ice cream balls, or more if you do a thinner coating or smaller size ice cream balls) and shape into a ball with clean hands ( It will be cold but worth it) If you don't care to have a uniform shape then you can simply just scoop out the ice cream and drop into toasted corn flake mixture without shaping), then immediately drop shaped ice cream ball into corn flake mixture and roll to evenly coat, while pressing corn flake mixture around outer surface for a thicker coating as desired. Serve immediately topped with cool whip, caramel and hot fudge sauce and cherry. Or  place in freezer in an airtight container (without toppings) and chill until serving, then top with toppings.
