Live Unshelled

How to Make Easy Fried Ice Cream

August 17, 2017

Fisher® challenged me to “live life unshelled” by trying something new. This easy fried ice cream was my something new! I’d been wanting to try it for so long. I mean…it’s ice cream….FRIED! I’m not sure what has stopped me. Sometimes paradoxical foods intrigue and frighten me at the same time.  Like…how can it really be fried and cold?

I gathered all my supplies and got to work. After researching and combining several recipes I decided to amp my coating up from the tradition Corn Flakes by adding Fisher Nuts which are preservative-free and Non GMO project verified! As well as using Vanilla wafer cookies and a dose of cinnamon sugar.

The verdict is now in….I.LOVE.FRIED.ICE.CREAM!


  • 1.5 qt Vanilla ice cream
  • 3 cup vanilla wafer cookies
  • 2 cup corn flakes cereal
  • 1/2 cup Fisher® pecans
  • 1/2 cup Fisher® pecans
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Garnish: chocolate syrup, whipped cream, cherries


  1. Line a muffin pan with plastic wrap.
  2. Scoop out 12 balls of vanilla ice cream using a large ice cream scoop.
  3. Place each scoop into the muffin tin.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until solid. (overnight is best)
  5. In a food processor add cookies, corn flakes cereal, pecans, and cinnamon sugar.
  6. Process until fine crumbs and place in a large bowl.
  7. In another large bowl, beat eggs.
  8. Remove ice cream balls from freezer.
  9. Dip each ball into the crumb mixture, then into the eggs and then back into the crumb mixture.
  10. Place breaded ice cream balls back into muffin tin and freeze overnight
  11. When ready to fry, heat oil to 400 F in a deep fryer.
