Delicious treat!!! Loved the texture with the cornflakes and so many different combinations could be made. I did have to make this a little differently, as when I added the corn syrup, my chocolate became solid and lumpy. So I then melted some more chocolate, this time just using 1/2 tsp oil and no syrup and had much better results. I then just rolled the ball in the chocolate. I then drizzled chocolate syrup on top, just so yummy. I originally planned to use strawberry ice cream, but DS finished it before I made this, so used vanilla. Thanks for sharing Anme. Made for PRMR tag.

Oh, my! What a great treat! I made 3 ice cream balls out of this and used regular chocolate chips. I used crushed rice chex cereal and cookie ice cream. Oh, the possibilities with this one!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe, Anme!!

This was a hoot to make! (that's Texan for fun ;-)) My ice cream of choice was mocha cappuccino crunch and the cereal - Cocoa Pebbles. For the topping, I stirred in a little instant coffee with the the chocolate chips. I can't wait to have the grandkids make these with me. Thanks for posting such a great idea.
