Day 123: Mexican Fried Ice Cream

I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of Mexican food. But I somehow planned a playdate on May 5th, and thought why not have a Cinco de Mayo themed playdate? Aside from sombrero related crafts, I thought my mom friends might like to kick back with some virgin margaritas and let our kids make their own soft and hard tacos.  

Here is one of the recipes I used.  The trick is to work quickly, and to do about three at a time and then put them in the freezer before they melt.  


2 L container of vanilla ice cream
2 cups of frosted flakes cereal
1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon

1. Scoop out the ice cream onto wax or parchment paper.  Put in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

2. Crush the cereal by hand, and add the cinnamon.  Mix thoroughly.

3. Spread the mixture into a pan.

4. Have a small tray or tupperware box ready.  As you take the scoops of ice cream out, roll quickly and thoroughly to coat it completely with the cereal mixture.

5. Serve with honey if desired.  Serves 12.

This was a hit with the kids, and parents!
