Welcome to the Grand Finale of Deep Fried Dessert Week.... We have had so much fun trying all of the different dessert items and reading all of your comments. I knew when I first read that Melody wanted us to do Oreo's that we would turn this into a week long affair and what dessert I wanted as the grand finale item. I have heard my Father tell us stories of this item when we were kids and we always thought he was pulling our legs and telling us a tall tale. When I was in high school the family went to dinner at a Mexican restaurant and oddly enough my Dad asked if we wanted dessert. Now this was something special, I am the youngest of 5 kids so when we went to dinner we almost never got to have dessert too. My Dad just pointed to something in the menu and told the waiter we all wanted to share this mystery item he was pointing to, and of course he would not tell us what this dessert was. To my surprise when it arrived to the table to find out that the stories my Father had been telling us all along were actually true. So I give to you this wonderful mystery deep fried dessert...As a Tribute to my dearly departed Father...Deep Fried Ice-Cream !
1 Tsp. - Ground Cinnamon
2 Tsp. - Sugar
2 - Eggs
2 C. - Crushed Frosted Flakes
2 - Ice - Cream Balls ( baseball sized )
Make your ice-cream balls and wrap in plastic wrap, place into the freezer for 24 hours until they are good and hard. The next day place your cereal into a shallow dish , mix the eggs, sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Remove 1 ice-cream ball from the freezer and unwrap it, roll into the cereal then into the egg mixture then back into the cereal. Repeat these steps...in egg mixture, then the cereal. Roll and pat the cereal onto the ice-cream, work quickly so the ice-cream does not get too soft. When the ball is fully coated leave it unwrapped and place it in a bowl and back into the freezer and do the second ball. Leave both in the freezer for 1 hour to get good and firm. Heat a deep fryer to 350 degrees, when the oil is ready cook for 15 seconds then serve with whipped cream.
