Fried Ice Cream Aka Crispy Coconut Dessert

READY IN: 38mins
Recipe by Nurse Amanda

My SIL makes this and we all LOVE it! She usually tops it with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. It is SO good with the crispy cereal, crunchy coconuts, and creamy ice cream! Prep time is the active time it takes to make the dessert and the cooking time is the freezing time.
