One of my favorite desserts is Mexican Fried Ice Cream, but I have never attempted to make it myself. If I'm out at a restaurant and they have it, then I'm having it for dessert, hands down. When I came across this recipe on Pinterest, I couldn't believe how easy this version of my favorite dessert was, I can actually make this right at home!

There are only a few steps, and although it's not technically fried (the recipe is more of a pan fried version), it is just as good!


Here's what you'll need:


Crushed Corn Flakes cereal
Sugar
Butter
Vanilla Ice Cream (soften for 30 minutes)
Cool Whip
Ground Cinnamon
Honey
Chocolate Syrup
Caramel Sauce
