Have you ever had fried ice cream? It's one of my favorite desserts to order when we visit our local Mexican food chain and I've even made it at home before.
First you make the "fried" coating by combining butter, cornflakes, cinnamon and sugar in a skillet. Cook and stir them until they are golden brown. Cool them completely.
Next up, you beat together heavy cream, evaporated milk and salt. Add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and beat until thickened.
Half of the cornflake mixture goes in to the bottom of your greased pan. Gently pour in the cream mixture. Then sprinkle the remaining cornflake mixture over the top. Pop it in the freezer for at least 8 hours, overnight is better.
Cut into bars. I used a metal spatula that I dipped into hot water and then wiped with a towel. This gave me nice clean squares.
They are good as is, but most places serve them with either a honey or chocolate syrup drizzle, then some whipped cream and a cherry.
These were a huge hit here, it's a perfect dessert when you want something sweet but don't want to bake. I hope you've enjoyed #DairyMonth as much as I have! Many thanks to my blogging friends for sharing all of their awesome recipes, be sure to go and check them out down below!
