Fried Ice Cream (Video)

 

1 gallon Vanilla (or your favorite) ice cream
3 or more egg whites, slightly beaten
1 box of a crunchy flake cereal (like banana nut crunch or frosted flakes), crushed
Salad or Peanut Oil, enough to submerge ice cream balls in a deep pot
Strawberry preserves, chocolate or caramel ice cream topping
 
Scoop ice cream and form into balls.  Roll in crushed cereal, then in egg white, then roll in cereal again until well coated and no ice cream shows through.  Put in freezer and freeze until very firm, several hours or overnight.
 
Heat oil in deep pot or fryer to 350 degrees.  Remove ice cream balls from freezer and dunk one or two at a time (depending on the size of your pot) and fry for about 10 to 15 seconds, or until golden on the outside.  Remove from oil, blot with paper towels and put in individual serving dish.  Top with warmed preserves or ice cream topping and serve immediately.    
 
You can use any variation of ice cream, cereal and toppings you like.  The key is to get the balls well coated and frozen hard before frying.  A candy thermometer helps to get the oil the right temperature.
