“O.K. so this is definitely not diet food. But it is way good. I had this in college at a wonderful Mexican restaurant. You can make up the ice cream balls up to 2 days in advance if stored in an airtight container. This is very easily made into a half batch.”
1 batch

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 gallon ice cream
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 -3 cups crushed corn flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 cup honey
  • 2 cups whipped cream
  • oil, to deep fry


  1. Form ice cream into balls about the size of a baseball. You will need to put each one in the freezer as you make them.
