Fried Ice Cream

Fried ice cream is a dessert made from a breaded scoop of ice cream that is quickly deep-fried creating a warm, crispy shell around the still-cold ice cream. It's a treat that involves what seems impossible––placing a frozen treat into boiling oil and keeping it intact. Fortunately, the impossible works and the result is a truly delicious indulgence that is ideal for dessert, parties and festivals alike. If you've been used to ordering this dessert treat when eating out, be reassured that it's easy enough to make at home too, and it'll taste just as good.
