Instructions Checklist
  • Cut a 12x24 inch sheet of aluminum foil and place it on a flat surface. Mix the coconut and crushed graham crackers together on the foil until well blended. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out 6 baseball-sized amounts of ice cream. Use your hands to form into balls, and roll in the coconut mixture. Wrap each ice cream ball in aluminum foil, and freeze at least 1 hour.

  • Meanwhile, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. To serve, place 1/2 cup strawberries on 6 plates. Remove foil from the ice cream balls and place one on each plate. Top with caramel sauce and whipped cream.

This was SO good. I added some sugar to the whipping cream to make it a little less sour. I also used a melon baller instead of the ice cream scoop to make tiny bite size balls. Great dish! Looks beautiful tastes great and a lovely gourmet-ish dish to impress the folks. Read More

This recipe is great for whipping up ahead of time then allowing guests to assemble it their way. I added a small splash of vanilla extract and sugar to the cream before whipping because I don't particularly like plain cream. Five star taste and very easy to recreate. Read More
