Mexican Fried Ice Cream Dessert

Tonight we had a visiting youth group over for Mexican food. I needed another dessert, but wasn't sure what to make.  Then I found this recipe for Mexican Fried Ice Cream Dessert on  It sounded really good!  It was good, though for some, it will be too rich. I've never met a "too rich" dessert!  Too sweet, maybe, but never too rich!\


3 cups crushed Corn Flakes cereal
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1  Half-gallon container Vanilla ice cream
1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I used more - to taste preference while mixing)
1/4 cup honey
Chocolate syrup
Caramel sauce
Take the vanilla ice cream out of your freezer and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes or so, to soften. Melt butter in a medium skillet, over medium heat. Add the crushed corn flakes and sugar. Stir to combine. Fry mixture for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until cereal is golden-brown. *Be careful not to burn. It may take less than 5 minutes*

Take a 9×13 baking dish and spread 1/3 of the corn flakes mixture into the bottom of pan. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the softened vanilla ice cream and cool whip. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Using a spatula, stir and mix well to combine. Spread ice cream mixture over the top of the corn flake mixture in the bottom of the pan.
Spread the remaining corn flake mixture evenly over the ice cream. Drizzle the honey over the top. Cover pan, and place in freezer. Freeze ice cream for at least 5 hours, or overnight.

Cut into squares and serve with drizzles of chocolate syrup and caramel sauce.
