Fried Ice Cream Recipe

I was watching Paula Deen several months ago when she was making Fried Ice Cream. I immediately packed it away in the back of my head as an I-have-got-to-try-this recipe. We finally got around to making it on my birthday last week at my mom's house. Here is the finished product with chocolate syrup, whipped cream, and strawberries! #SeriouslyYummyGoodness

The thing with this recipe, is that you can make them as big or small as you want-simply adjust the recipe accordingly. I made these on a 100 degree day, so they were quickly melting. You have to act fast while making these, but they really are very easy to make and extremely delicious. This recipe made about 20 balls.  One ball for each person will be plenty-it was my birthday so there were a lot of us.

-Large Tub Of Vanilla Ice Cream(if you're not making for many people-just use a 1/2 gallon)
-Golden Grahams Cereal(for 20 balls we used 1 1/2 boxes)
-5 Egg Whites(again-use less for less balls)
-Vegetable Oil for frying
-Toppings(chocolate syrup, whipped cream, strawberries, etc)

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Scoop the ice cream into 2-inch balls and freeze on prepared baking sheet for a least 2 hours.

Lightly beat the egg whites in a medium bowl. Put the crushed cereal in a separate bowl. Dip a frozen ice cream ball into egg whites and then roll in the crushed cereal and return to the baking sheet. Repeat the procedure with the remaining ice cream balls, egg whites, and cereal. Put the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.

In a large pot, pour vegetable oil to a depth of 4 inches and heat until it starts to bubble.Fry the ice cream balls in batches until golden, about 15 seconds. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.

Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately with desired toppings.

I am so excited because there were a few extras that we put in a bowl in the freezer to take out and fry when we want more! One is actually calling my name right now...along with these Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies! :)

  Pin It!

I love fried ice cream! When I was in college I worked at a Mexican restaurant and we had it on the menu and I ate it allll the time. They topped it with honey and strawberries and whipped cream.

I've never heard of friend ice cream. Why doesn't it fall apart when you fry it?
