Faux Fried Ice Cream

We had company over last night and decided to try something new.It comes from the "Keeping Up Cookbook". I will definitely be making this again!

1 cup sliced almonds
2 TBsp butter
dash of salt

1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups shredded sweetened coconut
2 1/2 cups Rice Chex cereal, crushed
1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 gallon vanilla bean ice cream

Saute almonds in butter over medium heat until lightly browned. Salt them lightly and cool on paper towels. Stir together cooled almonds, brown sugar, coconut, cushed Rice Chex, and melted butter.

Let ice cream soften slightly. Form ice cream balls with a scoop. Roll each ball in almond/chex mixture until well-coated and place on a baking sheet in your freezer. When finished, cover tray with plastic wrap and keep frozen. Ice cream balls can be prepared severalhours in advance. Serve with your favorite hot fudge or hot caramel toppings. ENJOY!


  1. I saw this link pop up on my reader and decided to immediately go to the kitchen and eat something healthy before I opened it up... it was a good choice! Now I'm only drooling half as bad as normal.

  2. Ahh you beat me to it! I made these when we had friends over for Chinese New Year, and just have never gotten around to posting it! They are pretty good huh?! I was surprised at how easy they are to make as well!

  3. mmmmmm I love fried icecream!

  4. This looks way different than the fried ice cream I used to make.

    I would just get a pot of oil really hot then dump some ice cream in. I would then drink the product. It was great.
