“Un” Fried Ice Cream

by Heather on July 11, 2011

I’m currently on the tail end of a productivity funk, I guess you could say, meaning I just lost any motivation to cook or bake lately. My brain just hasn’t been able to focus much. This funk is being forced out, however, and I’ve told myself I must get a dinner schedule together for the week before Lizzie wakes from her nap (I’m banking on her snoozing extra long…)

Anyway, my stepmother-in-law saved the day today (thanks, Shannon)! She emailed me the recipe for this delectable fried ice cream she made us back in April when we were visiting. Luckily, I was able to find Alex’s photo in our mess of documents. We seem to have food photos in almost every folder- it’s bad. This is a fun treat that is super easy to make and perfect for a warm summer night dessert.
I’m even being so lazy today that instead of typing out the ingredients, I just bolded them instead :)

Fried Ice Cream (without the frying!)

Form vanilla ice cream into handful-sized balls and freeze for at least one hour.
While these are freezing hard, add 3 cups of Total cereal to a plastic bag and crush with your fist or a rolling pin.  Add 1/2 cup brown sugar1/4 cup melted butter, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.  Shake the bag to mix.
Use a squeezable bottle to apply honey to the outside of the balls.  Then, roll the sticky balls into the cereal mixture.
I put the ice cream on cookie sheets lined with waxed paper.  Return to freezer until ready to serve.
Serve with flavored syrup of your choice: chocolate, strawberry, caramel.
Top with whipped cream and add a cherry or sprinkles to garnish if desired.
Makes about 20 ice cream balls

Yum! I love a good fried ice cream treat every now and then, but this takes it to a whole new level in getting to eat it more often! 😉

Ooh nothing better than fried ice cream! Unless it’s fried ice cream that hasn’t been fried at all :) Love it!
