Fried Ice Cream Dessert


3 cups crushed Corn Flakes cereal

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

1 (1.75 quart) container Vanilla ice cream

1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping like Cool Whip

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup honey

Chocolate syrup

Caramel sauce


  1. Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let sit about 30 minutes at room temperature to soften.
  2. Melt butter in medium skillet, over medium heat. Add the crushed Corn Flakes and sugar. Stir to combine. Fry mixture for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until cereal is golden-brown. Be careful not to burn. It may take less than 5 minutes.
  3. Take a 9×13 baking dish and spread 1/3 of the Corn Flakes mixture into the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, add the softened ice cream and whipped topping. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Using a spatula, stir and mix well to combine. Spread ice cream mixture over the top of the Corn Flakes in the bottom of the pan.
  5. Spread the remaining Corn Flakes mixture evenly over the ice cream. Drizzle the honey over the top. Cover pan, and place in freezer. Freeze overnight, or at least 5 hours.
  6. Cut into squares and serve with drizzles of chocolate syrup and caramel sauce. Enjoy!
