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.
