Basically it is ice cream balls covered with bread crumbs or corn flakes and is quickly deep fried and result is a crispy outside and cold ice cream inside.

First time when I heard about deep fried ice cream, I just became amazed and could not believe. Over and over I asked but how it is possible to fry ice cream specially dee fry in high heat?? !!! but when I saw and when I tasted, oh my gosh, it was piece of heaven in the plate. Just delicious.

You will need several hours to prepare and make it, as it should freeze two times and that’s why it will need several hours.

You can use bread crumbs, corn flakes, ground cookies or slices of cake for covering the ice cream balls.
