Not Fried, Fried Ice Cream

READY IN: 3hrs 7mins
Recipe by Wendy W88

Can't remember where I found this recipe, but it's great for Mexican night, or Cinco De Mayo!! (New Note: If you use the new Special K cereal with cinnamon and pecans, this is REAL delicious! Add the sugar and not as much cinnamon, no butter, and you don't have to bake it! Very crunchy and SO DELICIOUS!!! I used about 1 1/4 C Special K.)

Was served this dessert at sweet sister's dinner. She drizzled carmel sauce over it - we loved the crunchy part so much that we even added that sprinkled on top.
