The Formidable Fried Ice Cream

Fried Icecream?!?! How is that even possible you may ask. Won’t the icecream melt when you fry it?? I always had this in the back of my mind to try, but when one of my friends made it recently I decided to give it a shot. It’s a very easy and simple recipe by the way and tastes just amazing!

Oh and no, the ice cream does not melt because it will be at a really low temperature after you have kept it in the freezer for about 3 hours or more.

Fried Ice Cream


  • 1 quart ice cream
  • 3 cups corn flakes
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • Optional- strawberries, honey, chocolate sauce (decor)


  1. Make 5 scoops of ice-cream and put them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. I also made 8 mini ice cream scoops as well for mini desserts. Freeze for an hour.
  2. Meanwhile, put the corn flakes in a plastic bag and crush them.
  3. Add the coconut and cinnamon and shake the ingredients to combine. Set aside.
  4. Take a shallow bowl and whisk together the two eggs with the milk.
  5. Now remove your ice cream from the freezer. Roll it in the corn flakes mix and then coat it with the eggs. After that, coat it with the corn flakes mix again. (You can shape them with your hands to make them more of a ball shape)
  6. Put your ice-cream scoops back in the freezer for about 3 hours or overnight.
  7. Heat oil until it is medium-hot so about 365 degrees. You can drop one corn flake into the oil and see if it gets brown on the edges within 20 seconds to test if it is ready or not.
  8. Remove the ice cream balls from the freezer and fry them for only 20-25 seconds. Place on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb the oil.
  9. Serve immediately!

  1. I had fried ice cream at a restaurant once. It’s cool to find out how to actually do it. I wonder if you can do it without the cornflakes or if there is a substitute for cornflakes that doesn’t involve wheat and corn?
