Coconut Cornflake Fried Ice Cream
A frozen ball of creamy ice cream awaits within a hot crispy shell. The only hard part is walking away from a pot of perfectly hot oil.
- Use a good quality ice cream here. Ice creams that are fluffy and air filled may have a tendency to melt too quickly when fried.
- I recommend a coconut, banana, or chocolate ice cream.
- Make sure to coat the balls tightly and thoroughly with the coating so that there aren't any exposed bits of ice cream that could seep out when frying.
- Starting with a chilled pan and wearing gloves will help keep the ice cream from melting while you're working with it.
- After freezing the coated ice cream balls, you can place them in a freezer safe bag to store and fry up at a later time.
