Graham Cracker Fried Ice Cream

I've eaten fried ice cream lots of times, but have never attempted making it at home.   I found this recipe on Taste of Home, and thought it would be fun to make with my son.    While it's not a difficult recipe, it does require a lot of chilling time.  We made ours on a warm day, and had to hustle to keep it from melting while coating.  There is a very short window between crispy and delicious and a giant mess when frying, so take the time suggested very literally.    My son requested a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on them after frying, and I set out toppings of honey or hot fudge.   So good! Thank you Kay H for sharing your recipe  :)

Brown food and ice cream are two of my photography nightmares.   This is real life, real food, and as I said, a warm day.   Quick snaps before melting was all I was able to achieve.

                      Graham Cracker Fried Ice Cream

  3               cups  vanilla ice cream
     1/4           cup  heavy whipping cream
  1 1/4           cups  finely crushed graham crackers
  1           teaspoon  ground cinnamon
                        Oil -- for deep-frying

Using a 1/2-cup ice cream scoop, place six scoops of ice cream on a baking sheet. Freeze. Place heavy cream in a shallow bowl. Combine cracker crumbs and cinnamon in another shallow bowl. Dip ice cream balls in cream, then roll in crumb mixture. Cover and freeze for at least 1 hour. Refrigerate remaining cream and set aside remaining crumb mixture. Roll ice cream balls again in cream, then coat again with crumbs. Freezer for 15 minutes. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375'. Fry ice cream balls for 10-15 seconds or until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

  1. I like that this recipe calls for graham cracker crumbs instead of crushed corn flakes. I know it was labor intensive...good for you for persevering.

    1. I wasn't going to let it beat me! The yeast biscuits that are refusing to rise today may be another story :)

  4. You're brave for trying it at home! This is one of the few desserts that scare me to make at home, lol.

  5. I am so excited that you did it! I basically never fry, so the idea scares me. But the results look delicious so it is certainly tempting. YUUUUMMM!

  6. Such a fun dessert. I'd be so afraid the ice cream would melt.
