One night I got bored and decided to make fried ice cream. It is one of my favorite desserts, so I figured I should learn how to make it. It didn't take to long, only about an hour or so.

You will need:
Vanilla Ice Cream
Corn Flakes
Coconut Flakes
Cinnamon
Chili Powder
Some cooking Oil
and a Candy thermometer

Step 1: Forming the Balls

You can only do this with your hands. Clean and wash them, then start scooping out ice cream. I wanted them fairly big,m so I tried to make them about plum sized. After they are done place back into freezer, they have to stay frozen solid or they won't fry. Keep them in there for about half an hour, on to the next steps.

Step 2: Making the "Crust"

Grab a bowl and fill it with about a cup of corn flakes. I crushed them by hand, but I bet it would work much better if you pour them into a bag and crush. Break the flakes down into small pieces, I kept a few odd ones for texture. Once you've reached your desired consistency add other ingredients. I put in about a half cup unpacked coconut, put more in if you like. Then about a teaspoon of cinnamon, I just went by sight. Lastly a pinch of chili powder, this gives it that little bit of spice.

Step 3: Assembly

Beat an egg in a small bowl. Pull out the ice cream balls from the freezer, hopefully they are solid. Roll each ball into egg, and then flake mixture. I repeated to make sure I had the entire ball covered. Back into the freezer till hard.

My favorite fried food- deep fried pickles, I love them. I have only ever seen them one place though. Perfect bar food.
We have a local bar in Harrisonburg that deep frys Oreos! Oh yeah!
Awesome. Next it'll be something like fried watermelon. Fry everything! :)
what if all the water causes the oil to go over and light on fire and burn your house down and stuff?
Yes, man! You are the most right anyone's been since um, always! We know what cholesterol is, so let's fry it up & serve it with twice-battered fries!
Yeah, baby, that's what I'm talking about! Oh, yeah, and while you're at it, throw some battery guts in there too!  ;)

4 tsbns of salt. . .
2 bars of butter. . .
9 tsbns of sugar. . .
5 AA battery guts. . .    :)
tons of artificial color and flavor. . .

Oh, yeah!

:))
And 5 pounds of powdered milk...
Yeah! PWNAGE!!!!!!! Kill people with good food!
dipped in a pound of meltes butter... Yum!
H*** yeah, sounds good! ;P
I HAVE HAD FRIED WATERMELON!!!! LMAO 
Ew.
The're actually really good.
Eh. Depends on the batter, I guess. All that was fried in NY was fries, hot dogs, and chicken. Maybe the occasional oddity like a Twinkie or something.
I went to the calgary stampede this year and they had deep fried oreos, mars bars, and twinkies!
Not even broccoli or green beans... v.v
or the dreaded Cauliflower
*shudders*

A day late, but here is a dollar!
Although it isn't really a food, water can't be deep-fried...Lol...
What about water bottles?
You'd have deep-fried plastic...either that, or melted plastic...depending on the plastic that particular water bottle is made of....

What if the bottle is metal?
Was just thinking that.
nope NOTHING IS SAFE!!! lol 
Never!
i certainly hope not.
this would be super expensive but how about frying them in yummy macadamia oil or something?

you say 375 degrees, is that in Fahrenheit or Celsius?
Swert Maldris4 years ago
Probably Fahrenheit. 375 degrees Celsius would be a bit ridiculous.
How do you know when a frying pan is 375 degrees tho?...
