Recipe Information
Sheila Lacomba

  • Vanilla Ice Cream or your favorite flavor
  • Crushed corn flakes
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • Caramel syrup
  • Whipped cream
  • Crush the cornflakes and add cinnamon sugar to taste.
  • Roll the ice cream in balls (approx 1 cup (225 ml) of ice cream) and roll into the cornflake mixture to coat.
  • Allow to refreeze very hard on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
  • Drop balls into very hot oil for 2-3 seconds.
  • Remove and serve immediately with caramel syrup and whipped cream.
I used to work in a Mexican restaurant where this dessert was served. When rolling the ice cream balls, we worked in the large walk-in freezer to keep the ice cream from melting. You'll probably have to roll 1-2 and keep going back in the freezer to retrieve the ice cream. Good luck on your class project.
