Weekend Video Spotlight: How to Make Fried Ice Cream in Honor of National Ice Cream Month

Weekend Video Spotlight July is National Ice Cream Month…as if we needed an excuse to enjoy the cooling, creamy flavor of ice cream during the summer! Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, National Ice Cream Month is a great opportunity to explore new as well as tried and true ice cream flavors, textures, and toppings.

Below is a video that shows you how to make Deep Fried Ice Cream at home, a delicious novelty ice cream dessert which is often found at state fairs as well as at Mexican, Chinese, Thai, and Japanese restaurants.

The general principal involved in making Deep Fried Ice Cream is to coat a frozen ball of ice cream in an egg batter, then roll it in cornflakes or cookie crumbs, taking care to make sure the ice cream is fully covered so it doesn’t melt when briefly cooked in the hot oil.

Another variation is to tightly form poundcake around the ice cream before frying instead of battering it in the cornflakes or cookie crumbs.

Making Fried Ice Cream is surprisingly easy and doesn’t require exotic or expensive ingredients. However since the ice cream has to be refrozen several times to achieve the best results, Fried Ice Cream is more of a make ahead rather than an instant gratification dessert, so you’ll probably prefer to make it a day or so before you plan to serve it.

Popular toppings for Fried Ice Cream include powdered sugar, whipped cream, drizzled honey, and/or chocolate, caramel, maple, or butterscotch syrup. Fried Ice Cream is also wonderful topped with chopped nuts or fruit.
