How to make Fried Ice Cream

Even after experiencing fried ice cream in a restaurant, you might think that it would be too difficult to make this scrumptious treat at home. Not so! Just imagine the fun of serving this delicious dessert at a special dinner and hearing the amazed expressions from your guests. It’s not at all hard to do but it does require some advance preparation. You’ll want to pull all the ingredients together as early as the morning before the dinner. That will give you plenty of time to prepare this wonderful surprise for your friends and family after dinner.

The recipe for fried ice cream starts with, of course, ice cream. You can experiment with flavors once you are comfortable with the process but it is best to start out with vanilla. You’ll need an ice cream scoop that you can make almost perfectly round balls with. Practice a bit with the scoop to try to get the balls as round as you possibly can. Scoop out 8-12 balls of ice cream and place them on a cookie sheet. Immediately put them into the freezer so that they will freeze into that round shape. You’ll want the balls to be frozen very hard when you are ready for the frying.


3 cups corn flakes, crushed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 eggs
whipped cream
hot fudge or chocolate sauce

You’ll want to let the ice cream balls freeze for around an hour. Take three cups of corn flakes and crush them in a medium sized bowl. Try to crush them into tiny pieces for the coating. Add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the crushed flakes. Break three eggs in a separate bowl and whip them until the yolks are blended with the whites. Take the ice cream balls out of the freezer and dip them into the egg mixture. Take the corn flake coating and cover the ice cream balls completely. Place back on the cookie sheet and freeze for another 3 hours.

When you are ready to make the dessert, fill the fryer with cooking oil. Dip a few of the ice cream balls into the hot oil preferably with a basket. Cook them for around 15 seconds. Place the cooked balls on a serving plate and cover them with whipped cream and honey. You can also drizzle hot fudge or chocolate syrup over the top. A cherry on top makes for a perfect finish. Serve your fried ice cream up to your guests and wait for the “wows” to come rolling in.
