Test Kitchen Tuesday ~ This is not a test.

This week we celebrated Cinco de Mayo.
My family doesn't need a reason to eat Mexican food and drink margaritas , that's pretty common practice around here.
I searched for some new Mexican recipes on Pinterest, but in the back of my mind I had Fried Ice Cream.
This has been one of our favorite desserts for years and I have a wonderful recipe I developed in my bag of tricks.
So instead of sharing someone else's recipe I am sharing my own this week.
This is not a test...the is the real deal.
Our local Mexican restaurant actually fries the ice cream.
I do not.
So I guess it's un-fried ice cream, so that makes it healthy right??!?

Crush 2 cups of corn flakes cereal. I put mine in a ziploc bag and smash with my hands until it's in very course crumbs.
Add 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 TBSP granulated sugar to the bag and mix .

Scoop out your desired amount of ice cream, roll into a ball.
This will melt a bit but that is ok.
Once you have your ice cream ball roll in the corn flake mixture.

Place your coated ice cream ball on wax paper and wrap, then wrap wax paper covered ball in aluminum foil and put in the freezer for 2 - 3 hours to firm up.

Remove ball from wrapping.

Drizzle with honey, strawberries and chocolate sauce.
Add whipped cream and a cherry.
