I love El Torito's Deep Fried Ice Cream. It's different than having a sundae or a banana split which is why I love it. Enjoy!

This was a very good recipe. There was vanilla ice cream/frosted flakes instead. I also didn't put on a cherry. Never have been to El Torito, I can't compare but I can say that this was very satisfying.
I used vanilla bean ice cream,and i also used frosted flakes it is so good thanx
