Date: 24 Jul 1995 09:43:12 -0600 Connie Schachel requested a Fried Ice Cream recipe like the one served at Chi Chi's. This one is not from ChiChi's; it comes from _Cooking with Mickey Around our World_ (I refer to it as the "Mickey Mouse Cookbook").

Scoop ice cream into 4 balls. Freeze until very hard. Blend egg whites into almond paste until smooth. Dip ice cream balls into almond paste mixture, then coat heavily with graham cracker crumbs. Freeze until very hard. Store, wrapped, in freezer until serving time. When ready to serve, heat oil in 1½-quart saucepan to 360 degrees F. Fry one ball at a time until golden brown, about 15 seconds. Drain on paper towels. Serve at once in a peach half in a champagne glass. Top with vanilla sauce, chopped walnuts and a sprig of mint.

one of the recipes for Vanilla Sauce in the same cookbook is: Heat milk, sugar, and food coloring to boiling point. Dissolve cornstarch in water and stir into hot liquid. Cook and stir until mixture boils and is thickened. Let cool and blend in vanilla. Serve over fruit, pudding or cake.

My notes:

1. I would guess that ChiChi's recipe is similar except that they probably add cinnamon to the graham cracker crumbs (or use cinnamon topped crackers crushed).

2. ChiChi's serves theirs with honey instead of vanilla sauce and without the peach.
