"Fried Ice Cream" Bon Bons

Have you ever eaten Fried Ice Cream at a Mexican restaurant? Its one of those surprising desserts that you never forget the taste of. These little treats are a little sample of the fried ice cream flavor that you and/or the kids can make at home for a quick frozen treat or for a dinner party dessert.
Pint Vanilla Ice Cream
1 pack Graham Crackers, crushed
1/4 C. Brown Sugar
1 T. Cinnamon
1/4 C. Granulated Sugar
Chocolate Syrup (optional)
Chocolate Wafers
Line a tray or baking sheet with wax paper. Mix graham crackers, cinnamon and sugars together in a shallow dish. Using a scoop (small for bon bons, large for dessert), scoop a ball of vanilla ice cream and place it in the sugar mixture. Cover ice cream ball completely and place on lined tray. Work quickly to keep ice cream from melting. Repeat with rest of ice cream and coating or until the number of bon bons desired is reached. Place tray in freezer for about 1 hour or until bon bons are frozen. Store them in an air-tight container in the freezer. Serve cold with chocolate syrup for dipping or drizzled on top and a chocolate wafer for garnish.
~These can be made the day before for a party!
~If making a large batch, line two smaller trays so you can fill one and place it in the freezer while you fill the other one.
~Kids can help by crushing graham crackers and coating the bon bons.
