Ronni Keller:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8-10
  • 5 Cups Corn Flakes
  • ½ Cup Butter (not margarine)
  • 3 TSP Cinnamon
  • 5 TSP Sugar
  • Your Favorite Ice Cream (for traditional, use Vanilla)
  1. Form Ice cream into balls about the size of a small apple (I used a soup ladle to scoop and a spoon to help form the balls)
  2. Place in freezer on cookie sheet covered with wax paper for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Pour corn flakes in food processor and crush well. (you can also place in sealed zip-loc baggie and smash with bottom of plastic cup, fun for the kiddies to help!)
  4. Melt butter in a medium pan over medium heat. Careful not to burn.
  5. Stir in crushed corn flakes and cinnamon stirring constantly, about 3 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove from heat, let stand for 1 minute and stir sugar into mixture.
  7. Pour into a shallow dish and allow to cool. (I used my pie pan)
  8. Place frozen ice cream balls one at a time into mixture and roll around to evenly coat.
  9. Place back in freezer for just about 10 minutes to re-harden.
  10. Top with a nice drizzle of chocolate syrup, whipped topping and of course cherries.
  11. ENJOY!
