  • 4 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 cup corn flakes crushed
  • vegetable oil
  • chocolate syrup optional
  • honey optional


  1. Take four scoops of ice cream and quickly shape them into balls.

  2. Roll them in the crushed corn flakes until covered. Then return to freezer to harden up for about 30 minutes.

  3. Heat up oil in a pot over high heat. Heat up enough oil so that the ice cream can be submerged.

  4. Once oil is hot take out the ice cream and use tongs to fry one at a time. Submerge the ice cream ball in the oil for just one second then transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Repeat with the rest of the ice cream balls.

  5. Drizzle with chocolate and honey if desired.

  6. Serve and enjoy!
