"Fried" Ice Cream with Cinnamon-Chocolate Sauce

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 11 minutes


“Fried” Ice cream

Cinnamon-Chocolate Sauce

  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Place cereal in a medium bowl and lightly crush with your hands or the back of a wooden spoon. Add coconut and chili powder and combine.
  • In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil. Add cereal and coconut mixture and fry until it is golden brown and toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  • Using a ½ cup measure, scoop ice cream and quickly form balls with your hands. Place on a small tray and immediately return to the freezer for at least 30 minutes or until the balls are firm.
  • Remove ice cream balls from freezer and quickly roll each ball in the cereal and coconut mixture. Return to freezer for at least another 30 minutes or until the balls are firm again.
  • When ready to serve, combine the chocolate chips, cream and cinnamon in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. If the chips are not completely melted, stir and microwave for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Serve each fried ice cream ball with a drizzle of cinnamon-chocolate.
