Fried Ice Cream

Mexican Fried Ice Cream

Happy Cinco de Mayo- oh wait, that was 1 month and 1 day ago!  I'm a little behind on that post but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy this sweet treat.  You might think that making deep fried ice cream would be difficult to make at home but it is quite easy to do. The key is making sure the oil is heated to the correct temperature (375). These fry in 15-20 seconds until golden brown and then they are done! We like ours served with hot fudge sauce and whipped cream.
