Mexican Fried Icecream

Mexican Fried Icecream is one of our favorite family treats! My friend Christina taught me how to make this dessert. She is from Morelia, Mexico and often cooks for us when we go to visit my Mom. She loves preparing traditional Mexican foods for us. I always request her homemade guacamole too! Mexican Fried Icecream is perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any day!

Mexican Fried Icecream
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 16 flour tortillas, 6 inch each
  • 1 TBSP ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups cornflakes cereal or cinnamon toast crunch cereal
  • 8 large scoops vanilla ice cream
  • whipped cream
  • maraschino cherries
  • chocolate syrup
Instructions
  1. Directions:
  2. Scoop 8 large icecream balls and place on a cookie sheet and put in your freezer for about 1 hour.
  3. Fry each tortilla, one at a time in hot oil over medium/high heat until crispy. Tortillas will float to the top.
  4. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon mixture over both sides of the fried tortillas, coating evenly. I like to use a shaker or a McCormick cinnamon/sugar grinder.
  5. Using the other half of the cinnamon mixture, combine with the corn flakes or cinnamon toast crunch cereal into a small bowl.
  6. Place a scoop of ice cream in the cereal mixture and with your hands roll the ice cream until it is entirely coated with cereal mixture.
  7. Place the ice cream scoop on the center of 2 cinnamon/sugar coated tortillas.
  8. Spray whipped cream around the base of the ice cream. Spray an additional whip cream on top of the ice cream. Place a cherry or two on top of the ice cream.
