It’s been years since I had fried ice cream, but I remember how much I loved it!! Good news is, I love this unfried ice cream just as much! Although different (and definitely not fried) it’s an easy way to prepare a yummy dessert with a delicious crunchy topping. Serve it topped with whipped cream, drizzled with honey, and with a little fresh fruit for effect.
