Recipe which violates laws of physics (at first glance)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What do you folks know about this... thing... that I've found? Seems crazy!


6-1/2-cup scoops vanilla ice cream, rounded into balls
1 egg
1 tbsp. water
1 cup finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp. cinnamon
Honey, whipped cream or caramel sauce for garnish

Combine graham crackers and cinnamon; mix well. Whisk water and egg together.

Dip ice cream balls into egg mixture, then roll balls in the crumb mixture and freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Refrigerate remaining egg mixture.

Re-dip balls in egg mixture and roll balls in remaining crumbs. Freeze for 15 minutes.

Heat oil in fryer or deep pot to 375°F and lower balls carefully into hot oil. Cook for 10 seconds. Remove and serve immediately, garnished with your choice of topping.

The weirdest thing of this is that I've found numerous variations of it! In Spanish and English.

PS Does it taste good?

It's really good! What they do is freeze the ice cream really, really hard so that it doesn't melt when you put it in the fryer.

Over here, they mostly make this in Mexican restaurants. Yummy! If you ever get the chance, try it!

it's pretty common over here and it tastes pretty ok.. just that while the outer skin is hot, the inner is rather cold.. not good for my teeth...

Love fried ice cream! I used to work in a Mexican restaurant, and we would occasionally put the wrong topping on, so we could have a snack.

Victor, besides being fried, icecream can be baked in an oven too.
Have you heard of Baked Alaska?
