Caramel Fried Ice Cream

Meet the Cook: For birthday parties or outdoor barbecues, this is a hit. At times, I substitute strawberry or Neopolitan for the vanilla ice cream...either works fine, too. Our children - my husband and I have two daughters, 21 and 16 - used to love eating out at Mexican restaurants just so they could order fried ice cream for dessert. When I came upon this recipe, I copied it down quickly! -Darlene Markel, Sublimity, Oregon
