DIRECTIONS

  • The night before you want to make this, take the ice cream and scoop it into balls, making sure they are solid with no air pockets.
  • Place them in a shallow pan, lined with wax paper, that you can put into the freezer.
  • Freeze overnight or for at least 6 hours.
  • Next, combine the crushed cornflakes, sugar and cinnamon in a large ziplock bag.
  • Put the beaten eggs into a bowl.
  • Take the ice cream balls and coat them as best you can with the cornflake mixture.
  • Then dip the whole thing into the egg mixture and re-coat it with cornflakes, making sure the whole ball is well covered.
  • Return to the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  • When you are ready for the final step, use a good deep fryer, and heat it to a fairly high temperature.
  • Remove one ice cream ball from the freezer and drop into the hot vegetable oil for about 30 seconds, or until it just begins to brown.
  • Take it out of the oil and put in a bowl to serve.
  • You can top it with your favourite ingredients like chocolate sauce, whipped cream or cherries--or all three!
  • The shell should be cooked and crunchy, and the inside will still be frozen!
