Mexican Fried Ice Cream Cake

We celebrated Cinco de Mayo early this year and had friends over for dinner. I love desserts and so we are going to have this Mexican Fried Ice Cream Cake for dessert first, and then I'll share the other recipes over the next few days.  All of the recipes were pretty easy, and as I publish them I will link all of the recipes together.

Charly has made Fried Ice Cream balls before, and she used Frosted Flakes rather then Corn Flakes for her recipe, so I decided that I was going to use them in this recipe also.  My inspiration for this dessert came from Life in the Lofthouse.  This Fried Ice Cream Cake was so good that people were asking for seconds.  You are going to love it!!!

I do want to share my menu with all of you, so that you can look for the additional recipes as I post them.

Mexican Fried Ice Cream Cake


3 1/2 cups frosted flakes (ground in a food processor)
1/2 cup butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 quart vanilla bean ice cream
1 8oz container cool whip
3/4 tsp cinnamon
chocolate syrup
caramel syrup
whipped cream

Take your ice cream and cool whip out of the freezer and let them soften, so that you can mix them together easily.

Melt the butter in a skillet and then add the frosted flake crumbs and cinnamon.
Cook until golden.  Watch it carefully, because the frosted flakes can burn easily.

Let your frosted flake mixture cool down a little bit.  Then spread 1 1/2 cups of the frosted flake mixture in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.

Next mix the ice cream, cool whip, and cinnamon together very well and spread this over the top of the frosted flake crumbs.

You will then put the rest of the frosted flake crumbs on top of the ice cream mixture, making sure that you have covered the entire top of the ice cream with the frosted flake crumbs.

Next drizzle honey over the top of the corn flake crumbs.

Freeze for 4 to 5 hours before serving.

Cut into 12 pieces to serve and drizzle caramel sauce and chocolate sauce over each piece and then top with whipped cream.

I always love hearing from you.
Have a great week.


  1. Wow ladies, this recipe sounds awesome and the other Mexican ones as well. I don't know how to cook much Mexican dishes, except for Guacamole, wraps and a Mexican Pastel, which is like a lasagna version.

    1. Hi Fabby,
      I'm so happy to hear from you. How are you doing? They are pretty easy recipes. I love guacamole, and I have never had Mexican Pastel I will have to give it a try. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
