How To Make Fried Ice Cream

Discover how to make a satisfyingly crunchy fried ice cream without deep-frying. All you need is a good amount of cereals and a firm scoop of ice cream.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 3 minutes
Cool Time: 15 minutes
Total: 33 minutes



  • 6cupscorn flakes cereal
  • ½cupsalted butter
  • tspground cinnamon
  • 32ozVanilla ice cream

For Optional toppings:

  • honey or caramel sauce
  • chocolate fudge sauce
  • sweetened whipped cream
  • cherries fresh or maraschino


  1. Pour cornflakes into a gallon size resealable bag, seal bag, and then use a rolling pin to crush cornflakes into small bits.

  2. Melt butter in a nonstick 10-inch frying pan over medium heat. Stir in crushed corn flakes and cinnamon and increase the heat slightly.

  3. Cook mixture, stirring constantly until golden brown and fragrant for about 2 minutes.

  4. Remove from heat, pour the mixture into a shallow dish and allow to cool.

  5. Remove ice cream from the freezer, scoop out the desired serving size, and shape it into a ball with clean hands.

  6. Immediately drop the ice cream ball into the cornflake mixture and roll to evenly coat, while pressing the cornflake mixture around the outer surface for a thicker coating.

  7. Freeze for 10 to 15 minutes to re-solidify ice cream, keep frozen until ready to serve. Add toppings just before serving.
