{Mexican Recipes} "Deep Fried" Ice Cream for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. Do you have any favorite Mexican recipes? One of our favorite is deep fried ice cream. This recipe reminds us of a dessert served in one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. 

"Deep Fried" Ice Cream


4 c. bite size crispy cinnamon rice cereal squares, crushed
1 c. mini semi sweet chocolate chips
2 pts. vanilla ice cream
1/2 lb. fresh sliced strawberries, hulled & sliced
Garnish: honey, whipped cream

Combine cereal and chocolate chips in a bowl; set aside. Scoop 8 balls of ice cream with an ice cream scoop. Quickly roll ice cream balls in cereal mixture; mound balls in a 9" pie plate. Coer; freeze at least one hour until firm. At serving time, top ice cream balls with strawberries. Drizzle with honey and dollop with whipped cream. Makes 8 servings.

Kitchen Notes: I made this on a whim and used what I had on hand. We omitted the chocolate chips and strawberries. Instead of honey we used caramel sundae syrup and topped with a cherry. All easy changes and this is now a new go to recipe when we need a sweet mexican treat!

FYI this isn't an actual fried recipe. If you have ever had this in a restaurant, they called it fried or deep fried but it isn't! The coating on the outside of the ice cream makes you think it is fried.
