This is an entry for the copycat contest and if you think it is worthy of your vote I thank you in advance!
Step 1: Author's Notes
Step 2: Ingredients
4 Scoops of French vanilla ice cream
4 Cups Corn Flakes ( crushed)
High temperature cooking oil for frying
1 Lightly beaten egg
Honey sprinkled with cinnamon, chocolate, caramel, maraschino cherries, or whipped cream
5 uncooked flour tortillas found in the cheese section of the grocery store.
1 Stick of melted butter
Ramekin dish and pastry brush
Step 3: Make Tortilla Bowls
Using the pastry brush spread a light coat of the melted butter on both sides.
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on both sides of the tortillas.
Carefully place the coated tortillas in the ramekin bowl and shape as shown in pictures.
Poke the bottom and sides with a fork.
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes or until light brown.
I made the tortilla sticks the same as the bowls except, instead of shaping them in the shape of the bowl I rolled them into logs and baked them on a cookie sheet in the oven, turning often to brown evenly.
Step 4: Scoop Ice Cream
While they are freezing prepare the cornflakes mixture in the next step.
Step 5: Prepare Cornflakes
I simply crush them through the bag with my hand.
Step 6: Set Up Dipping Station
Thoroughly coat each ball with the cornflakes mixture and place them into the glass dish to be frozen again for at least 2 hours.
Remove the ice cream balls from the freezer.
Dip the coated balls into the egg mixture and then into the cornflakes for a second dipping.
Place them in a covered container again but this time freeze overnight. This part is very important to do because if the ice cream is not frozen solid the cornflakes may fall off during the frying process.
My husband enjoys his treats very sweet where as I like as little sugar as possible. You may notice I added cinnamon sugar to the cornflakes just for him; but personally I think they were too sweet.
Step 7: Fry Coated Ice Cream
It is best to serve immediately allowing each guest to garnish their own ice cream with their choice of toppings.
When we are using the honey or caramel for the topping we sprinkle cinnamon over the top.
