I think this has to be my favorite Pinned It and Tried It.
Oh, this was good!
And it did taste alot like fried ice cream. The corn flake crust was awesome..... so rich, buttery, and crunchy! I loved the hint of cinnamon in the ice cream layer, along with the drizzle of sweet honey. Adding the caramel, cream, and cherry on top...well....that just made it perfect!
I made this for a friend of mine who was coming over for lunch. We had been to Mexican Village not too long ago and she really enjoyed the fried ice cream there, so I thought she might like this dessert. And she did, but then who wouldn't?
I'm so glad I found this and pinned it!
I know I will be making this often.
