Sharing the best Fried Ice Cream recipe! …a family favorite!
When I was growing up, my mom and a few of my older sisters worked at A&W. I remember they would bring home fried ice cream after their shift, and it was my fave! Now when I order fried ice cream at a restaurant, I’m critiquing it. Cecilia found this fried ice cream recipe online via The Imperfect Housewife and has been bringing it to family gatherings. It is a HUGE hit! She usually has to make 2 pans because everyone loves it. It’s not actually fried ice cream, but dang it tastes like it! For Bashy’s birthday party, the fried ice cream was his birthday cake.
Here’s the Fried Ice cream recipe:
- 4 cups crushed Corn Flakes (that means 4 cups AFTER being crushed)
- 1 stick butter
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 container whipped topping (8oz)
- 1 carton of vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup sugar
-Take ice cream out of freezer to soften (at least 30-60 min beforehand).
-Crush Corn Flakes.
-Melt butter in pan on medium.
-Once butter is melted, add the crushed Corn Flakes and sugar. Stir for about 3-5 minutes.
-Put 1/2 of the mixture in a dish covering the bottom.
-In a bowl, mix ice cream, cinnamon, and whipped topping.
-Put ice cream mixture on top of the Corn Flakes mixture in the dish.
-Sprinkle the rest of the Corn Flakes above the ice cream. Put in freezer until ready to serve!
