Fried Ice Cream

I don't know how they exactly make Mexican Fried Ice Cream, but here is a simple version that I picked up off a cereal box years ago. It is surprisingly similar and a quick fun desert.

Go to Gail's Grocery Cart Challenge and find other great recipes on Friday's Recipe Swap! You'll be glad you did.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: none
Serves: 16-20
Cost: Approx. $3.00

1 Pint of vanilla ice cream ($2.00)
1/2 box of cinnamon toast crunch cereal generic brand ($1.00)
chocolate syrup

Crush cereal and place in a deep pan. Scoop out vanilla ice cream and roll int the cereal. Place ice cream balls back in the freezer for 10 minutes.

To serve top with honey or chocolate syrup.

I'm wondering where the fried part comes in . . . maybe because you use cereal, there's no frying involved? Anyway, this sounds intriguing . . . you gotta love anything with ice cream and chocolate syrup! Thanks for sharing.

"Faux" frying is figure friendly. Sorry, the alliteration bug hit, LOL! Looks yummy!
