fried ice cream

My girls made won ton tacos tonight so I thought we should definitely give this recipe a try for dessert.  This dessert is terrific!  My husband took a bite and said, "This is amazing!"  This will be a fun dessert to pull out when guests are over because it is really good and it's unique.

fried ice cream (blog: Cookbook Junkies
2 quarts vanilla ice cream, softened
5 cups Rice Krispies or cornflakes
1 1/2 cups butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts, optional
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Melt butter and add brown sugar and cinnamon.  Add cereal and nuts.  Put 1/2 of mixture in bottom of a 9x13 pan.  Scoop softened ice cream over mixture.  Put remaining cereal mixture over ice cream and freeze 4-5 hours before serving.  Cut into squares and serve with caramel, chocolate and strawberries.

What I have to say-  Instead of using a 9x13-inch pan I used two 8x8-inch pans so I can pull one out another time.


  1. I made this for a recent playdate day. My 4 kids invited over 7 friends and chaos ensued! But they all managed to calm down long enough to eat this ice cream treat; it was a big hit! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. Kids and ice cream are a great combination. Glad they liked it!
