For our Church Ward party we celebrated Feliz Navidad and ate Fried Ice Cream for dessert...YUMMY!!
It was so easy to make so I wanted to share the recipe with you ----

1/2 c. Melted Butter
1 c. Coconut
3/4 c. Sugar
4 c. Crushed Cornflakes
1 ctn. French Vanilla Ice Cream

Melt butter and mix with coconut, sugar and cornflakes. Spread a little more than half on the bottom of a 9x13-in. pan. Cut the carton of ice cream into slices and lay over the mixture.
TIP: Before you start to spread ice cream let it sit out a bit and soften enough to spread evenly. Squish down while spreading to get mixture to stick better:)
Another suggestion is to sprinkle some cinnamon over top to give it a more authentic fried flavor.
Than sprinkle remaining corn flake mixture over top and freeze until ready to serve.
Serve with caramel sauce and chocolate sauce (homemade is best) or BOTH and whip cream!! You can top with favorite fruit such as strawberries as well.
