7 Faux Fried Ice Cream


I have never had fried ice cream before.  I can't even imagine taking something cold and throwing it in a vat of hot oil...

Angie shared this sweet treat at a church function and it got raves!  I loved the slightly sweet, crunchy coating surrounding the cold vanilla ice cream.  Imagine my surprise when I found out that is has *gasp* cornflakes in it!  If you can use crushed cornflakes for "fried" chicken, why not for "fried" ice cream?

Just a few simple ingredients and you can have a quick, easy, yet elegant dessert ~

Crush your cornflakes....I like to use a freeze Ziploc baggie and a rolling pin.  You can use a mallet, a skillet, whatever floats your boat.  If you're experiencing any kind of stress, now's the time to let it loose...





Add sugar to your crushed cornflakes...




Sweetened flaked coconut...


Mix and add your melted butter...


Toss it all together and resist any nibbling!



My friend who makes this layers half of the cornflake mixture into a 9x13 pan, spreads a 1/2 gallon of softened vanilla ice cream for the middle layer and then puts the remaining cornflake mixture on top.  It is then put into the freezer to chill till firm.

I decided to make these into individual servings by using a large (muffin sized) scoop and my homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream recipe...

My ice cream was soft and became softer as I handled it with the cornflakes, so I had to work fairly quickly.

Each covered ball was put on a baking sheet.  When the baking sheet became full, I popped it into the freezer overnight.




I think layering it in a 9x13 would be easier and less messy!

Take a look at the little flecks of vanilla bean.....


Serve this with caramel or chocolate syrup.  Oh, and whipping cream, if you want!
