Every parent knows – mornings are hectic with kids. The lazy mornings of summer and vacations are a much needed break from rushing everyone out the door. Once school starts in a few short weeks, we’ll be rushing everyone up to get dressed eat and make it to school on-time. So, along with that long list of school supplies, I also picked up some of our favorite Post cereals at Walmart.
With all the money I spend on supplies and new clothes, Post cereals are a value and there’s something for everyone.
I can buy a few boxes and have them on hand for not only breakfast, but for snacks, after-school activities and even dessert. Yes. Dessert.
One thing that I love to make with our favorite cereal, Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted, is a ‘Faux Fried” Ice Cream. This is one of our favorite desserts! If you’ve ever had a fried ice-cream, you’ll know how good it is, but it can be difficult to make. This recipe creates that crunchy exterior coating, and creamy frozen inside, in a 5 minute recipe!
1 c. Honey Bunches of Oats – Honey Roasted
1/2 c. shredded coconut – sweetened or unsweetened
1 tsp of Vegetable Oil/Coconut Oil – whichever you prefer to cook with
Ice Cream of Choice – You’ll be scooping 1 inch scoops
(Increase depending on qty. you want to make)
1. Allow oil to heat in a pan over medium heat.
2. In a seperate bowl, add the Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted and crush with the back of a spoon. Crush well!
3. Add shredded coconut and mix well.
4. Add cereal / coconut mixture to the pan with oil and stir well. Reduce the heat to low so that the cereal does not burn. You want the mixture to get a bit golden brown – nothing more.
5. Remove from heat and spread on a cookie sheet to allow to cool completely. If it is not cool, your ice cream will start melting when you roll it in it.
6. In the meantime, remove the ice cream from freezer and scoop mini-scoops of ice cream. I use my TBSP measuring spoon and it scoops these mini-size scoops well! Place these on a non-stick baking mat on a cookie sheet and refreeze for 15-20 minutes until firm.
7. Once the cereal mixture is cool, pile together to make for easier rolling. Take ice cream scoops out and roll each one in the cereal mixture, coating completely.
8. Return the coated scoops to the cookie sheet and place in freezer for 30 minutes.
9. Remove from freezer, plate, drizzle with chocolate if you prefer, or enjoy as is!
These go fast! Everyone loves the crunch with the creamy ice-cream. It gives you the same concept as fried ice cream but in a much easier recipe.
