Last year I made a 3 Layer DIY Ice Cream Cake but let this go down in history as the time I actually deep fried ice cream! This isn’t your Mexican restaurant’s “fried” ice cream either. This is the real deal Holyfield – Homemade Cherry Cheesecake Fried Ice Cream.
I’ll never forget the first time I ordered a fried ice cream at a Mexican restaurant. It was not at all what I was expecting. It came out as something akin to orange sherbet covered in warm cornflakes. I was so disappointed. Not because it wasn’t good (I’ve never been one to turn my nose up at ice cream) but because I thought someone had figured out a way to put ice cream in hot oil and still have something leftover to eat. And I’m from the South, Y’all and that is not how you fry things!
