This is so very easy and is a definite crowd-pleaser, plus it tastes just like the fried ice cream that you get at a Mexican restaurant. Enjoy!
3-4 cups of crushed Corn Flakes - any brand (that's 3-4 cups after they're crushed)
1 stick of butter
1 cup of sugar
1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream (although they're not officially a half-gallon too much anymore - whatever size is closest to that)
1 container of Cool Whip or any brand of whipped topping - I just use the regular size, not the larger size
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Get the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften while you get the Corn Flakes ready. Sometimes I get it out 1/2-1 hour before I need it. Melt the butter in a skillet on medium-high (not too high or it will burn the sugar...and everything else ;). Add the crushed Corn Flakes and the cup of sugar. Stir it around for maybe 3-5 minutes. Put about half the mixture in a 9x13 dish or pan.
Meanwhile, in a very large bowl (just because it's easier), combine the ice cream, whipped topping, and cinnamon. I use a hand mixer and mix them together. Pour it on top of the Corn Flakes in the 9x13, and then top with the rest of the Corn Flakes. After that, pop it in the freezer. I usually get it out a little while before it's time to serve it so it's not hard as a rock. Drizzle each serving with a little honey if you like. Muy bien!
Perhaps next time I post a recipe, I will have figured out how to make it so you can print the recipe without copying and pasting, etc. And maybe my profile will be updated, too. And maybe I will have figured out Instagram. And maybe I'll post sooner than a year from now. Then again...
For those who enjoy pictures of the steps, here they are (so easy) ~
