Cinco de Mayo - Desserts


One of the best things for dessert at a Mexican restaurant is Fried Ice Cream!
Haven't you ever wondered how they did it?

Check out how easy it is to make your own fried ice cream.

originally from Culinary
3 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal
6 scoops (1/2 cup each) vanilla ice cream
4 tablespoons honey

Place cereal in resealable plastic bag, seal bag and crush cereal with rolling pin.

Place crushed cereal in shallow dish. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the honey over cereal.

Quickly roll 1 scoop ice cream at a time in cereal to coat. Place coated scoops of ice cream in ungreased baking pan. 

Cover and freeze about 2 hours.  

Set oven to broil. Uncover pan. Broil scoops with tops 6 inches from heat about 30 seconds. Immediately place scoops in individual serving dishes. In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 2 tablespoons honey on high 10 to 30 seconds until warm. Drizzle 1 teaspoon warm honey over each serving.  Serve immediately.

The "fried" outside is sweet and crunchy and coats the scoop of ice cream perfectly.  You will be amazed at how much it tastes like the fried ice cream made in Mexican restaurants.  Now you can say that you can make it at home too!

Another dessert idea to celebrate Cinco de Mayo is to make some Churro Bites.

Churro Bites right in your own kitchen.  These delectable goodies start with angel food cake!  Get your Churro Bites printable recipe by clicking the link.  Each churro has a crunchy exterior with a tender, moist and light angel food cake interior.  Awesome!
