Fried Ice Cream


In one word mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmgood!! I have had this sinful dessert many times in my life. And they all have been so good. I thought I would google and see if I can come up with a recipe for it. And to my surprise I found a web site called cooks.com and they have 36 different recipes for fried ice cream. wow, I didn't know there would be so many different ways to make it. Here is one of them that I found it was the first one so if you want more you will have to go to the site and get the rest.

FRIED MEXICAN ICE CREAM

1 pt. vanilla ice cream
1/2 c. crushed corn flakes or cookie crumbs
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. sugar
1 egg
Oil for deep frying
Honey
Whipped cream

Scoop out 4 or 5 balls of ice cream. Return to freezer. Mix crumbs, cinnamon and sugar. Roll frozen ice cream balls in half the crumb mixture and freeze again. Beat egg and dip coated balls in egg, then roll again in remaining crumbs. Freeze until ready to use (for thicker coating repeat dipping in egg and rolling in crumbs).
When ready to serve, heat oil to 350 degrees. Place a frozen ice cream ball in fryer basket or on a perforated spoon and lower into hot oil 1 minute. Immediately remove and place on dessert compote. Drizzle with honey and top with a dab of whipped cream. Continue to fry balls one at a time. Balls will be crunchy on the outside and just beginning to melt on the inside. 4-5 servings.

Now the reason for this picture I went scrap booking with my best scrapping buddie Tuesday (Dee Ann)and we ate at the Mexican restaurant and we had this for dessert. We shared it this time we learned our lesson last time we had this we both had one and boy were we hurt en. Enjoy and wipe those drools off from your mouth!!! I know, I know it is hard when something looks this good.
