Fried Ice Cream Bars - Made by MiMi

    With my sister Chloe home for spring break and Pops working late, Kristie thought it would be fun to have a girls night.  We had a Mexican fiesta for the sisters, MiMi and Grandma (Jax got to come too as I had been out of town for a few days and they knew I wouldn't come without him).  We had the best time.

   MiMi made taco dip and chicken taquitos.  Chloe made some really yummy guacamole.  Kristie brought some margaritas.  We sat around stuffing our faces and catching up.  Jax loved the margaritas (virgin of course!) and he always loves dips.  He rarely eats chicken, but will eat the taquitos.  So that is a plus!

   MiMi finished the meal with these fried ice cream bars.  They have all of the crunch and flavor of fried ice cream, but are so much easier to make.  No last minute frying needed!





Fried Ice Cream Bars

Ingredients:

1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
3 cups crushed corn flakes
2 qts vanilla ice cream
1 8 oz. container whipped topping
1 tsp cinnamon
Honey for dizzling

  1. Pull out ice cream and let soften
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter.  Add sugar and cook until butter and sugar are fully incorporated and starting to bubble
  3. Stir in corn flakes and cook for another 5 minutes.  You want the corn flakes to toast and caramelize a bit.  Spoon about half (or slightly more than half) of the corn flakes into the bottom of a 9 x 13" pan and press to form a crust
  4. Mix together ice cream, whipped topping and cinnamon
  5. Spread ice cream mixture over corn flake crust
  6. Sprinkle remaining corn flakes over the ice cream
  7. Cover and freeze for a minimum of two hours
  8. Slice and serve drizzled with honey

  1. That was fun. I'm so glad Kristie suggested it. Laura's taquito recipe was a fun one to try. I love the recipes other family members have shared with your blog.

    1. I haven't tried, but I think they roll it in crunchies then deep freeze it followed by a quick flash fry. Sounds messy to me!
