"Fried" Ice Cream Sundaes

We are so excited for warmer weather but to be honest, we love ice cream at any time of the year! This recipe for "fried" ice cream is one of our favorite ways to make an ice cream sundae just a bit more fancy and delicious!

The ingredients you will need are vanilla ice cream (We love Turkey Hill's Vanilla Bean), corn flakes, cinnamon, honey, and cherries! 

First crush the cereal. You can break these up in a food processor or with a rolling pin in a plastic bag but our preschooler E asked to use the potato masher! I wasn't going to pass up that chance for bonus fine motor work!

You want the cereal to be about the same texture as Panko breadcrumbs. Not too small or too large.

Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon into the crushed corn flakes and stir. Scoop a ball if ice cream into the bowl. Softened ice cream works best so let it sit out while you crush the cereal. Roll it in the mixture with two spoons until it is well coated.

Drizzle with honey, add whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry (or whatever toppings you like best)!

This week's Cooking with Kids letter is H for honey. Squeezing this sweetness out of our bear jar is great pre-writing work for little hands!

  1. Now I know what I'll be making with the kids for tea tonight that looks simple and easy for pudding.

  2. Oh these look and sound delicious. I have never come across this idea before. Any idea as to why they are called fried?

    1. Jen, some Mexican restaurants actually do fry ice cream but since we don't want to mess with hot oil, this is the fake version. Still crispy and crunchy and healthier!
