Deep Fried Ice Cream Sundae

After you have made the Oats and Honey Granola from Friday’s post, you can make fast and easy Deep Fried Ice Cream Sundaes!  Casa Gallardo had the best deep fried ice cream sundaes, but they closed all of their restaurants and I haven’t found something that tasted close.  This recipe comes really, really close – close enough for me!  And it didn’t cost $4.95 to make either.  🙂

I have seen a Deep Fried Ice Cream pot luck dish on Pinterest, and it sounds great.  Potlucks and frozen desserts are sometimes awkward though – you need freezer space at someone’s house, you need to have everyone eat it before it melts, and you have to cover and make sure the leftovers do not turn into soup at the host’s house.  Maybe a baby version?

Deep Fried Ice Cream Sundae

2 scoops vanilla ice cream (prescooped and frozen hard makes the best copycat)
2-3 Tb. of oats and honey granola, recipe here
1 Tb. honey
pinch of cinnamon
whipped cream
marachino cherry, optional (I’m not a huge fan, though it would have been pretty in the photo!)

1.  Place ice cream in a small bowl/dish.
2.  Sprinkle and press oats and honey granola into the ice cream.
3.  Drizzle honey on top.
4.  Sprinkle cinnamon on top especially if you didn’t use cinnamon in the granola recipe.
5. Top with whipped cream!

    1. Most restaurants do not deep fry their ice cream but roll it in cornflakes. Yes, Casa Gallardo did it the right way! This tastes close to what most Mexican restaurants do. I would love to have them back again for their ice cream, flan and salad!
