  • Combine cornflakes and cinnamon in a shallow dish. Beat egg whites until foamy in a separate bowl.

  • Roll ice cream balls in egg whites, then in cornflakes, covering ice cream completely. Repeat if necessary. Freeze again until firm, about 3 hours.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Using a basket or slotted spoon, fry ice cream balls 1 or 2 at a time in hot oil until golden, 10 to 15 seconds. Drain quickly on paper towels and serve immediately.

Editor's Note
