Okay, I admit, I eat WAY more ice cream than the average person...at least I'm guessing I do, although I really don't know how much ice cream ya'll eat.
I just know I'm guilty of eating it often & FRIED ice cream, it's my favorite!
I saw a pin of fried ice cream on Pinterest one night and thought, "I HAVE to try making that!"
Want to try making it too?
It's a sort of lengthy process but well worth it.
Here's what you'll need:
(you can also add whip cream & a cherry)
First I scooped out four balls of ice cream and set them on wax paper in a baking pan and placed them in my freezer overnight so that they would harden up.
Then I put a bunch of cornflakes in a pot and crushed them up REALLY well.
To get the cornflake mix ready I added 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.
Then the same amount of sugar and mixed it all really well.
Closer to when I was ready to actually make my fried ice cream I broke 2 eggs (depends on how much fried ice cream you're making) and separated the yolk from the egg whites.
Egg whites get placed in a bowl.
Beat well until it looks like this, foamy.
Then, I took my ice cream out of the freezer, rolled it in the egg whites and then rolled it again in the corn flake mixture.
They go back into the freezer for 3 hours after this.
After three hours and getting your oil heated up you can drop a scoop into the hot oil. Be careful. I used a Fry Daddy with a basket so it was pretty easy.
I left them in for 15-20 seconds and then pulled them out.
Have paper towels ready to set the ice cream on to absorb any extra oil.
They turned out awesome!!!!
Sorry I don't have any pictures of my fried ice cream all finished in my bowl....but I was too busy eating it, hehe....
If you try making your OWN fried ice cream, let me know how it turned out!
