Homemade fried ice cream

Homemade Fried Ice Cream | NoBiggie.net | So technically it’s not fried, but it’s the best at home version without the fryer. You’ll love it!

I’m such a sucker for fried ice cream. It’s so good! I always have to order it at my favorite ‘dive-y’ Mexican spot. It’s so simple and inexpensive to make that I had to try to master it at home.

Here’s the recipe:

Fried Ice Cream

– vanilla icecream (your favorite)
– cinnamon (could be a cinnamon sugar mix)
– cornflakes (a big box)
– coconut (optional)
– caramel syrup
– chocolate syrup
– whipped cream (in a can)

Also needed:
– plastic wrap
– clear plastic gloves (it gets messy!)
– a plastic bowl (to store the frozen balls of ice cream)

To make fried ice cream put your clear plastic gloves on, scoop out a big ball of vanilla ice cream roll it around in cinnamon then wrap it up in plastic wrap and store it in a big plastic bowl until you are ready to serve.

When ready to serve drizzle a little caramel syrup on the ice cream ball and then roll the ball in the cornflake/coconut/cinnamon mixture. Serve with more caramel syrup, chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Ooooh it’s so good!

*My first attempt at this didn’t go that great, and the problem was that I froze the ice cream balls with the cornflake mixture on it. The cornflakes can lose their crunchy texture in the freezer…And that’s the best part!
