My daughter-in-law requested this for her birthday dinner today. I had forgotten about it. It is called fried ice cream, but as you can see, no frying involved - it just tastes like the fried ice cream you get at restaurants. It is really good served with hot fudge (recipe to follow) and fresh strawberries. Happy Birthday Aubrey! Fried Ice Cream
4 c. corn flakes (2 c. crushed)
1 c. coconut
2/3 c. sugar
1 cube butter melted
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened by leaving out for 15-20 min.
Mix the first four ingredients together. Spread half of the mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Next, add the 1/2 gallon of ice cream, sliced in 1" thick slices, placed side by side. Cover with the rest of the mixture. Cover with foil and freeze. Serve with fresh sliced fruit and hot fudge sauce.
Helpful Hint: I found that putting the corn flakes in a gallon zip-lock freezer bag and crushing them with a rolling pin works well. Then, just add the coconut and sugar to the bag and shake to combine. Then, add the melted butter and mix it up. No dishes! Yahoo!!!
