Step-By-Step: Fried Ice Cream

Serve your fried ice cream with your favorite sundae toppings.

Scoop your favorite ice cream into balls and place them on a plate or cookie sheet in the freezer. Cover the scoops of ice cream with plastic wrap and allow them to freeze for one hour.

Put the cereal-coated balls of ice cream in the freezer for another hour, covered with plastic wrap. After one hour, dip them into the cream and cereal again, allowing them to freeze for one full hour for a third time.
