DIRECTIONS

  • Place a plate or sheet pan in the freezer and let it chill for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • Using a large ice cream scoop, make balls of ice cream and place them on the sheet pan then return them to the freezer.
  • Cut the crusts off the sliced bread and using about 2 slices per ice cream ball, form the bread around the ice cream using your hands to pack it like a snow ball.
  • This works best if you turn 1 piece of the bread so that it is not directly over the other, so that you have 8 corners, like a star.
  • Once it's completely covered return it to the freezer.
  • If some ice cream melts through the edge, just wipe it off.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat 3 inches of canola oil to 365 degrees F.
  • Drop the covered ice cream balls, one at a time, into the hot oil and fry, turning occasionally so they color evenly, until golden brown on all sides.
  • Remove from oil and briefly drain on paper towels.
  • Stir together the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Coat fried ice cream in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Serve immediately.
  • I like it drizzled with caramel or chocolate fudge sauce.
