Another Deep Fried Ice Cream
Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt
Box of unsweetened
-cornflakes, crunched to
-dust (or as near as you
To 1/2 cup sugar
Eggs, well beaten
Ok, the night before you want to make this (or in the morning...),
take the ice cream and scoop it into balls (tennis ball size). Make
sure the balls of ice cream are solid, no air pockets. You will
likely have to use your hands. Place them in a shallow pan that you
can put into the freezer (lined with wax paper). Freeze overnight,
or at least 6 hours.
Next, combine the crushed cornflakes, sugar and cinnamon in a large
(gallon size) ziplock bag. Put the beaten eggs into a bowl.
Take the ice cream balls and coat them with the cornflake mixture,
really pressing it into the surface of the ball. Then, dip the whole
thing into the egg mixture and re-coat it with cornflakes. Return to
the freezer for at least 2 hours. Make sure there are no "bald
spots" anywhere on the ice cream ball. You might need to dip into
the egg and re-coat with the cornflakes one more time. Freeze for at
LEAST 2 hours before you are going to fry.
Use a good deep fryer, and heat it to a fairly high temperature (I
don't know exactly how hot this is, I never measured....).
Immediately before you want to serve, remove one ice cream ball from
the freezer at a time, and drop into the hot oil (use canola....) for
about 30 seconds, or until it just begins to brown. Take it out of
the oil and put in a bowl to serve. Top with really good stuff like
hot fudge (lots....really lots...oh, sorry, I'm thinking about this
too much), whipped cream, nuts, anything else that you might deem
The shell should be cooked and crunchy, and the inside will still be
frozen (amazing, isn't it?). You can only cook one at a time, so if
you have a whole bunch to make, use more than one fryer. Let the oil
return to the high temperature before you add the next ball.
