This was a dessert I used to order at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I couldn't believe you could fry ice cream, but this recipe is delicious proof. Top it with honey, caramel ice cream topping or whipped cream.—Kay Higgins, Madawaska, Maine

"Fun dessert, not quick, but delicious. Watch the frying time carefully. We sprinkled ours with cinnamon sugar after frying. Next time I might add some crushed up cornflakes along with the graham crackers."

"My family really enjoyed this. It is a bit time consuming with all the freezing, so plan ahead. I would also only fry the ice cream for about 10 seconds, because too long after that and it starts to melt and the grahm cracker crumbing starts to fall off."

"A disappointment. First off, the amounts listed in the recipe were off. I needed to make 50% more of both the heavy cream and graham cracker mixture to have enough to cover all 6 scoops of ice cream(1/2 cup scoops as stated). Next, half of the batter fell off in the fryer, leaving a partly bald dessert. Finally, the taste wasn't that great. Pretty much just tasted like pouring crushed graham crackers over a scoop of ice cream, thus rendering all my hard work pointless. I will try the pie-crust version next time and see if that's any better."

"Try Cinnamon Toast Crunch-type cereal finely crushed, either roll ice cream in it or sprinkle over. Even better than cinnamon grahams."
