NO-FRY FRIED ICE CREAM

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Growing up in Arizona I ate a lot of Mexican food and still could eat it everyday if I had the chance (and the metabolism). I remember as a child being astounded at the whole concept of fried ice cream.

 

There was always a hopeful look to my parents after dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Please? Can we get it?

 

This No-Fry Fried Ice Cream is a quick and easy Mexican-inspired dish that has all of the crunch of actual fried ice cream but without all of the calories and mess of spattering oil.

First, you want to scoop your ice cream and freeze it so that it’s easy to roll. If you line a cupcake/muffin tin with plastic wrap it makes for easy freezing and even easier removal.

 

cornflakes and butter

 

Next, crush your cornflakes with a food processor or in a Ziploc bag. Melt some butter in a pan and add the crushed cornflakes.

 

cornflakes and cinnamon

 

Add some cinnamon to the mixture.

Cook the mixture for a couple of minutes to toast the cornflakes and bloom the cinnamon which brings out the flavor. Remove from heat and add the sugar. Let the mixture cool completely.

  • vanilla ice cream
