Fried Ice Cream is easily one of my top favorite desserts of ALL TIME! The flavor, the crunch, the caramel, the chocolate… it is absolutely heavenly!
My mom and I recently took a girls trip together. For dinner one of the nights we went t o a Mexican restaurant and of course had to order some fried ice cream for dessert. We got talking about how much we both loved this dessert but hated how time consuming making and frying all the balls were. We then talked about these Crispy Ice Cream Balls and the Krispie Ice Cream Dessert on my blog and how brilliant it would be to combine the two into one no hassle Fried Ice Cream Cake.
WOW! Let me just say this recipe is OUTSTANDING! Definitely one of my new favorites on the blog and it is SO easy! Trust me on this, you are going to want to make this dessert!
