Faux Fried Ice Cream Recipe

Faux Fried Ice Cream It was my birthday and all I wanted was (naturally) a Mexican Fiesta.   As my mom and I were planning the menu, I suddenly got a brillant idea – fried ice cream.   Of course, we weren’t planning ahead.   We were planning dinner for that night at 3 PM.   But, fried ice cream has to be quick and easy, right?   WRONG!

Fried ice cream takes hours.   You have to freeze it, fry it, freeze it some more.   It spends like a total of 4-6 hours in the freezer, so that option was out. Craving fried ice cream now, we came up with a solution – faux fried ice cream. It’s not fried, but in my opinion, it was better than the real stuff!   Probably healthier too.

- – Ingredients – -

  1. Vanilla ice cream
  2. Caramel (pictured) or honey topping
  3. Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal

- – Directions – -

  1. Scoop ice cream in to your bowl.
  2. Grab a handful of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and crunch lightly in a bag or in your hand. You want it to be chunky still.
  3. Coat your ice cream with the cereal.
  4. Drizzle with topping.
  5. Enjoy!

I’ve done this before but never thought about it’s similarity to fried ice cream! Probably why I like it so much! :) Good with chocolate sauce too…hope you had a happy birthday!

General Mills won’t like that Kelloggs stole their cereal name :P
