More About This Recipe

  • Here is a fun and easy dessert that the whole family can help make. Even though I am calling it Cinnamon Toast Crunch “Fried” Ice Cream, there is no frying involved and it has all of the flavors of the traditional dessert. I was inspired by a traditional recipe found on Tater Tots and Jello. The more traditional version of this dessert uses corn flakes and cinnamon, but when you use Cinnamon Toast Crunch everything you need is already there. You can get the flavor and the crunch without having the mess of deep frying. Instead of topping with the traditional honey, I went with a sauce using caramel sauce and Rumchata (which is a cream rum liqueur). Of course, if you are making this for the kiddos, stick with the honey. Either way your family or guest will be saying YUM! to this fun dessert.
