Today’s recipe comes from my fabulous friend, Ashley. She, like this dessert, is liked by all, unforgettable, gorgeous, and fun! Ashley made this amazing little treat while hosting a Gossip Girl dinner at her home. Of course vanilla and caramel are already a star-duo, but the combination of the creamy ice cream and crunchy Frosted Flakes crust…..mmm…. I wish I had this dessert in front of me right now!

- Good Quality Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
- Frosted Flakes Cereal
- Good Quality Caramel Sauce (for drizzle)
Put a freezer-safe plate in the freezer to get it cold. Keep it in the freezer for at least a half hour before you start prepping the dessert – you will put the ice cream balls on it later.
Make sure the ice cream is pretty frozen. Mold the ice cream in the palm of your hands, which are warm and naturally start to melt the ice cream. Quickly form a tennis ball-sized scoop of ice cream into a ball in the palm of your hands. After each one is formed, place it on the cold plate in the freezer. Once all are formed, let them re-harden in the freezer.
Crush the frosted flakes in a bag (I like a little texture to mine, so not super smashed). Add desired amount of cinnamon and sugar and shake to mix.
All steps up to this point can be done up to a day prior to serving.
hardened, remove one from the freezer, roll in the frost flake mixture, and then place back into the freezer until all are completed (so they don’t melt). When all are done, plate, drizzle with the caramel sauce and serve 🙂
