{Easy Recipe} Copy Cat Mexican Restaurant Ice Cream

We all love that crunchy, sweet ice cream dessert found at Mexican restaurants. It is one of those treats you order to share with others at your table! My daughter and I made this dessert at home a few years back. This is the perfect dessert to get the kids to help make and serve at your Cinco de Mayo party or with any fun family night meal.

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!
