Mexican Fried Ice Cream

Ingredients

* 1 quart vanilla ice cream
* 1 cup crushed frosted cornflakes
* 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes, or 1 cup chopped walnuts, or 1 cup cookie crumbs
* 2 large eggs
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* Vegetable oil, for frying
* Hot chocolate sauce, optional
* Whipped cream, optional

Directions

With an ice cream scoop, form 4 large balls of ice cream. Place on a waxed paper lined sheet and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for at least 2 hours.

In a bowl, combine the cornflake crumbs with either the coconut, walnuts or cookie crumbs (or any combination). Spread the mixture in a shallow dish.

Dip the ice cream balls in the crumb mixture and freeze for 30 minutes.

In a bowl, beat the eggs and sugar. Dip the coated ice cream balls into the eggs, then roll in the crumb mixture, coating completely. Freeze for 1 hour. (If necessary, or for a thicker crust, roll again in eggs and crumbs until the balls are completely coated.)

Heat the oil in a large pot or fryer to 400 degrees F. One at a time, lower the balls into the oil and fry until golden brown, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from the oil and place in a dessert bowl. Drizzle with chocolate sauce and whipped cream, as desired. Repeat with the remaining ice cream.

I use a cinnamon sprinkled fried flour tortilla shell.

Make about 4-8 servings.

Not to sound rude but why not try it yourself?

You don't sound rude. Well mostly because I don't like trying out foods without opinions from others. Is that weird?
