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!

    My son is allergic to corn. Do you think rice crispys if a good substitute for cornflakes?

    This was a big hit! My husband said it tasted just like what we used to get at Chi Chi's! (Showing my age now) I did add more cinnamon though - like an extra teaspoon because I couldn't taste it in the cornflakes. This is a very sweet dessert but we loved it! Perfect with any kind of Mexican food!!

    I was wondering how you stretch the cornflake mixture for the top and the bottom of a 9x13 dish.
    Seems impossible.

    This turned out Fabulous!
    *I used cool whip instead of whipped cream.
    Will definitely be making this again and again and again?

    This stuff is delicious. We enjoyed it much more than original fried ice cream because it doesn’t get runny. The only things I did different were I used 4 cups of crushed corn flakes instead of 2 and I put 1 tsp of cinnamon.
