This is a good recipe, but I had a little difficulty with the ice cream melting. I followed the recipe exactly, and although I fried the balls no longer than a few seconds on each side, the ice cream still melted. I feel like maybe if a little more sugar was used, it would have hardened a little better - I'll try that next time!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the cookie crumbs, coconut, crushed granola, graham cracker crumbs, sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Place evenly on a plate.
  3. Scoop out Ice Cream to the size of tennis balls and roll in the cookie mixture, pressing firmly.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet.
  5. Repeat until all crumb topping is used.
  6. Freeze balls to HARD.
  7. Prepare optional toppings.
  8. In a deep pot or fryer heat oil to 400 degrees, and deep enough to cover the balls-allow for the oil to foam up at first.
  9. If your making tortilla bowls do them now.
  10. Drain.
  11. Fry balls two at a time for no longer than 15 seconds-just enough time to make a hard"candy" type coating thats golden.
  12. Place in tortilla bowl, suround with whipped cream and top with what ever you wish.
  13. I like grated chocolate or sprinkles, nuts and hot fudge.
