  1. 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.
  2. 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!!
  3. 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.


I'm just a girl whos passion is for cooking, well some people would call it an obbsession rather.... I am a college student at RIT going for food management and prep, my favortie things! Most of my orignal recipes are made from left overs since I cook for one or two most days so there are always left overs in my house. I play mad scientist most days in my kitchen with left over chicken breasts lol. I am also a health food freak and a major gym rat, so I am always on the look out for good subs for the more unhealthy ingredients in most recipes. Also I am just starting to take pictures of the food I make on this site, so my photos are anything but stellar yet so I will not be offended in any way if you chooses not to use my pictures. <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view¤t=tish2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish2.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=newtaginethbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/newtaginethbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/Spelling-Bee-stick2jpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/ScrapBook.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/ApronSwap2007.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/28636/zwt3banner.jpg"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TasteofYellow.jpg> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg">
