If you've ever gone to a Mexican restaurant, they usually have Fried Ice Cream on the dessert menu, and I heard that they actually do fry it - imagine that! Well, while visiting one of my favorite food blogs, I came across a recipe for a Fried Ice Cream Dessert. It looked easy enough and I made it one weekend just for the family. OH...MY...GOSH!!! It tastes JUST like the fried ice cream you'd get at the restaurant. I've made it several times for work friends, family get-togethers, etc. It's so easy you'll have a cow, and that will now be the dish that everyone wants you to bring to everything - and bring a copy of the recipe because otherwise you'll be repeating it 75 times,,
Fried Ice Cream Dessert
- 1 stick butter
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3 cups of crushed corn flakes
- 2 qts. of vanilla ice cream (softened)
- 1 container of whipped topping
- 1 t. cinnamon
- Honey, for drizzling
Melt butter in frying pan.
Add corn flakes and sugar. Fry for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly so the sugar doesn't burn.
Pat about 1/2 - 2/3 of this mixture into a 9x13 pan.
I let the ice cream sit out for about 1/2 hour to soften it. In a LARGE bowl, beat together (I use a hand mixer) the ice cream, whipped topping, and cinnamon.
Pour ice cream mixture on top of crust in the 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the rest of the crumbs on top and freeze. Lightly drizzle each serving with honey.
