Cinnamon Honey "Fried" Ice Cream Balls
We are sticking with the Ice Cream theme, it has been a little hot here in Utah. We are trying to give you some desserts to not only to satisfy your sweet tooth, but to also cool you down. This dessert is not very hard to make, nor requires a lot of time, like our last dessert. This dessert is a much simpler alternative to you "standard" deep-fried ice cream.
What you will need:
1 1/2 quarts (6 cups) chocolate or vanilla ice cream (We used vanilla)
3 cups finely crushed cinnamon toast-flavored sweetened cereal (We used Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal)
1/3 cup Honey (We used more Honey)
1/4 cup Honey, warmed
You need to let your ice cream soften, just a little, so you can make 12 (1/2-
cup) balls, and lay them out on a cookie sheet. When you have finished
getting all 12 of your ice cream balls, freeze for 15 minutes.
Well your ice cream is getting frozen, chilled, again you can start on your
cereal mixture. In a shallow pan (we used a pie pan) place your cereal and
drizzle honey evenly over cereal; mix well with a fork until crumbly.
Once you have your cereal all make and you have waited your 15 minutes, quickly roll your ice cream balls in your cereal, be such to only do them one at a time. Return all them to the cookie sheet and freeze for about 20 minutes or until firm. You can also cover and serve later on.
Just before serving, drizzle each with a teaspoon of warm honey, I would recommend place on individually plates, before drizzling with honey. Then eat and enjoy.
Now my brother, was the only one of us who could handle 2 desserts in one night. He said these were amazing. I will have to take his word on it, until I can try it for myself tomorrow.
