Ready in 45 minutes

This was a dessert I used to order at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I couldn't believe you could fry ice cream, but this recipe is delicious proof. Top it with honey, caramel ice cream topping or whipped cream.


3 cups Ice cream vanilla flavour
1/4 cup Whipping cream
1 1/4 cups Graham crackers; finely crushed
1 tsp Cinnamon

Original recipe makes 6




Using a 1/2-cup ice cream scoop, place six scoops of ice cream on a baking sheet. Freeze.

Place heavy cream in a shallow bowl. Combine cracker crumbs and cinnamon in another shallow bowl. Dip ice cream balls in cream, then roll in crumb mixture. Cover and freeze for at least 1 hour. Refrigerate remaining cream and set aside remaining crumb mixture.

Roll ice cream balls again in cream, then coat again with crumbs. Freeze for 15 minutes. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375?. Fry ice cream balls for 10-15 seconds or until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings.
