These Amazing Mexican Ice Cream Balls are easy to make and fun to eat. Made with vanilla ice cream, crushed frosted cornflakes, sugar, ground cinnamon, and honey, these ice cream balls can be kind of messy to make.
This Mexican recipe is like the classic Mexican Fried Ice Cream without the actual frying. You can prepare them ahead of time and keep them in the freezer until it is time to serve them. Just wait to add any topping you like and serve.
You do not have to use vanilla ice cream, just choose any flavor you prefer that will complement the cinnamon coating.
Tips to Make Ice Cream Balls
- Shape the ice cream into the ball form and re-freeze for at least 1 hour.
- When handling the ice cream to put the coating on, wear plastic gloves.
- Instead of rolling the ice cream in the crumb coating, put the ball in your hand and press the coating on with your other hand.
