    I serve this with chocolate syrup and whipped cream as a topping. Also, I have substituted several different cereals depending on what I have on hand, and it has always turned out yummy.

    This is super! We used to go to the Fisher Theater in Detroit and after the play would go to a restaurant named Al Greens. They were famous for deep fried ice-cream. This is as good as theirs, and a whole lot less expensive. I used strawberry ice-cream, and didn't flambe. I just put the ice-cream on a plate with chocolate swirls and drizzled a little more chocolate on top. I am so pleased to have found this recipe! Thank you Charishma!!

    I made this before when I was a cook in Mexican cantinas. I used special K because it has crisper coating. After pulsing the cereal a few time I added cinnamon and suger then after dipping the ice cream in egg wash coat the ice cream ball and put back in freezer. After 10-15 min put 2nd coat on it. Fry for about 15 second, grain oil, place on ice cream dish, drizzle maple syrup over the top and garnish with whipped cream and a cherry.

    I tried this recipe for a recent dinner party. None of us were thrilled about it. I did not flambe it and maybe that is why it was just "alright". I coated the ice cream with the corn flakes three times and it seemed too thick. I served it with caramel and toasted pecans. It just tasted like ice cream with cereal. I would not make again.

    I love fried ice cream and now I know how to make it! Thanks! This is a popular dessert in New Mexico. The Mexican restaurants put a drizzle of honey under the ice cream ball and a little drizzle on top too..followed by some whipped cream and sprinkled on top with cinnamon. So good!
