This simple, easy fried ice cream recipe actually requires no frying at all! Not missing is that golden, crispy, delicious cinnamon coating.

Scale

Ingredients

68 scoops of your favorite ice cream flavor (I chose vanilla)

1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut

4 cinnamon graham crackers

Your favorite sundae toppings for serving

Instructions

To make the Un-Fried Ice Cream. scoop 6-8 balls of ice cream onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for 1 hour, or until hard.

Toast the coconut. Meanwhile, place 1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut in a frying pan and toast over medium-low heat on the stove. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

Make cinnamon coating. Combine toasted coconut and 4 cinnamon graham crackers in a food processor. Pulse until it’s in fine crumbs. Pour crumbs out onto a large plate.

Coat ice cream balls. Take ice cream out of the freezer and let sit at room temperature for a couple of minutes to warm up enough for the coating to stick to the outside. Roll balls in the crumb mixture, pressing crumbs into the ice cream balls with your hands, like you are packing snow to make a snowball. Freeze again until hard, another 30 minutes. Serve with your favorite sundae toppings!

 

Notes

Ice cream balls can be made up to a month in advance and kept covered in the freezer.
