caramel and chocolate syrup, or honey, for topping (optional)
Spoon four ice cream scoops onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Place the pan into the freezer and allow to firm up for 1 hour. Meanwhile, place the crushed CornFlakes cereal into a bowl and mix with the cinnamon. Mix the eggs and milk in a separate bowl; set aside.
Remove the frozen ice cream scoops from the freezer and use your hands to mold them into uniform sized rounds. Working with one at a time, roll an ice cream ball into the crushed cinnamon cereal to coat and place back on the wax paper. Repeat with remaining ice cream.
Roll each round into the egg mixture, then coat again in the cereal and place back onto the wax paper lined baking sheet. Return to the freezer for about an hour.
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet to 365?F – 375?F. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and fry each coated ice cream round for 20 to 25 seconds, turning to fry evenly. Transfer to a paper towel then quickly place on individual plates and drizzle with caramel, chocolate or honey.
