Fried Ice Cream

Easy Fried Ice Cream

Not really authentic, but this recipe is so easy and super yummy, it is the perfect finale for your fiesta.

1 pint vanilla bean ice cream
1 loaf sliced white bread
6 to 8 cups oil, for frying
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Using an ice cream scoop, make balls of ice cream and place them on a cookie sheet. Freeze for about 1 hour.
Using kitchen shears, cut the crusts off the sliced bread. Using 2 slices per ice cream ball, form the bread around the ice cream using your hands to pack it like a snow ball. Once it's completely covered return it to the freezer. 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.
