Shortcut "Fried" Ice Cream

If you’re wondering how something so easy sounding can be so good, you’ll have to make it for yourself. The combo of the cinnamon-kissed corn flakes, once they’re toasted with butter, is amazing. When you roll a big scoop of vanilla ice cream in that, it’s to die for. So say goodbye to hot fudge and hello to a new twist that will have you saying "OOH IT’S SO GOOD!!"

What You'll Need

  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream
  • 3 cups frosted corn flakes cereal, coarsely crushed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, form six ice cream balls, each about 2-1/2-inches in diameter. Place in a freezer-safe container, then place in freezer.
  2. Meanwhile, coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine cereal, cinnamon, and butter; mix well and spread on baking sheet. 
  3. Bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and crisp. Remove to a shallow dish and allow to cool completely. 
  4. Remove ice cream balls from freezer and roll in cereal mixture, coating on all sides and gently pressing cereal onto ice cream. Place back into container and freeze 1 hour or until ready to serve. Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve.

Test Kitchen Tip

Make these up in advance and if you keep them in an airtight container, they’ll be ready for you whenever you’re craving something insanely delicious.
