Fried ice cream!

Twins Fried ice cream

Delicious ice dessert with a hot crunchy crust.

We remember last year around this time after we finished dinner, our lovely sister in law said:  Lets make some fried ice cream! We were like ” WHAT”?   We went to the kitchen and she showed us how. We were amazed how quick and easy it was to make. Never thought you could actually combine hot and cold. And its so sooo yummie!  From then we make it very often, we are crazy about it.  And we thought you guys may like it too. You can use any flavor of ice cream and all kinds of toppings like chocolate sauce etc.


-Ice cream (any flavor)
-Sliced white bread
– beaten egg
– bread crumbs
-oil for frying


1.        Prepare the ice and make scoops
2/3.  Wrap the scoop in plastic foil, and put it in the freezer
4.        Flatten the sliced bread with a rolling pin
5.        Take the scoops out of the freezer,  unwrap the plastic foil and form the bread around the ice cream like a snowball using your hand
6.        Wrap it again in plastic foil and put it back in the freezer for 20 min.
7.        Before you take the balls out of the freezer heat the oil in a pan, make sure its hot! Unwrap the plastic foil and dip the balls in the beaten egg and bread crumbs
8/9.   Fry the balls, turn occasionally until golden brown on all sides.( very fast,  just about 50 sec).
10.    Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. You can add any garnish you want, but make sure to serve immediately!

Below you can see how we make this step by step.

  1. OMG this is much easier than I thought! For years I’ve been pretending it was my birthday at my favorite sushi place so they would give me deep fried green tea ice cream hehehhee

    • Hi! Yes we didn’t know either until our sister in law showed us how! Thank god hihi…Now we can make it our self and enjoy this delicious treat 🙂 Thanks for visiting our blog.

  2. I’d never heard of this recipe before. Now I’m just imagining all the possible variations. Ben and Jerry’s Cookie Dough wrapped in slices of choc chip brioche – I think that’s my night sorted.

    • Yumieee Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough is our favorite too! Yes that’s a good idea! We can almost taste it hihi…Thanks for visiting our blog 🙂

    • Hi Bronwyn Joy! Yes, its wrapped in bread, but there will be definitely other variations too, to wrap these ice cream. But really its a piece of cake 😀 . Have fun making it 😀 !

  3. ik heb begrepen dat jullie Nederlands zijn, wat leuk 🙂 ! Ik kom uit alkmaar maar woon in Italie en waar komen jullie vandaan ? mijn moeder is Surinaams dus ik ken wel wat gerechten van wat jullie hebben gepubliceerd, zoals Roti ! Vriendelijke groetjes Sérach 🙂 !

    • Hallo Serach! Ja klopt we zijn Nederlanders hihi, maar onze ouders komen uit Indonesia. Surinaams en Indonesische gerechten hebben inderdaad veel overeenkomsten. Oh u woont in Italie, echt leuk! Zeker een mooi land! We zijn van plan om binnenkort weer een tripje Italie te plannen 🙂 . Groetjes Ineke en Anneke xx

      • Leuk van jullie te horen meiden en dat moeten jullie zeker doen om naar Italie te komen want het is een prachtig land ! Ik wens jullie veel succes met jullie blog en nog een prettige avond en tot ziens maar weer 🙂 !

  4. Brilliant idea – one to do to surprise friends and family.
    Baked Alaska also springs to mind!

    • Hello Gayle! We are sure they will love it. Yes baked Alaska is on our list too, going to try it soon 🙂 Thanks for visiting our blog!

    • Thank you Cowcockeygirl! No, its very easy to make! After making 1 or 2 of these balls, you will do it like a pro hihi. Have fun making it 😀

  5. This is great. All the tricks we learn to do this in culinary school and I’ve never heard of putting a piece of bread around the ice cream. It seems like it should’ve been common sense. Totally going to try this. Especially since I homemake all my ice creams, this would be a great way to present them.

    • Hi Joshua! haha yes we could not believe it either that it was that easy to make. There are different ways to make fried ice cream. But with bread?? haha. Wow yummy homemade ice cream sounds great! Let us know how it went! 😀

  6. very nice indeed – I remember when I had fried cheescake in a restaurant in Orlando – asian restaurant, cold creamy cheescake deepfried exterior. Delicious and absolutely not one of the five a day! thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my Sunday post, look forward to reading more of you!

    • Hi! Ohw we never heard about fried cheesecake before. Maybe we should try to make it someday cause it sounds delicious. You have a nice looking blog, we love reading your post! 😀

      • Hiya – yes you should try to make it, it was really divine – and sure to be not too hard, I guess you could freeze the cheesecake for a bit so that it is nice and cold compared to the fried outside bits! thanks for the compliments appreciate them!
