Easy Fried Ice Cream without the Deep Fry!

While I sat in the restaurant, taking in each bite of its unique flavor, I thought about fried ice cream and wondered about the point of frying it if you were only cooking the coating.

There are people looking around and thinking, wait, that fried ice cream is fried with hot oils (no worries, this amazing fact shook me at one point as well). So, I decided to test the cheater’s version of fried ice cream.

This fried ice cream recipe offers everything the commercial recipe has to offer. However, it doesn’t have the hassles, long preparation times, or oily food waste that is the actual thing. I decided to cook (more than sautéing) in the coating of corn flake before rolling the ice cream into the layer.
