      • 5 Cups Cinnamon Toast Cereal
      • 2 Large Eggs
      • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar (Plus 1 Tablespoon)
      • 1 1/3 Cups Dutch-Process Cocoa Powder
      • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
      • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
      • 1/4 Teaspoon Chipotle Powder
      • 2 Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
      • 3 Cups Vanilla Ice Cream
      • 3 Cups Vegetable Oil (For Frying)


  1. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with plastic wraps.
  2. Place 12 (¼-cup) balls of ice cream in each prepared muffin cup. With plastic wraps, cover muffin cups and freeze for about 2 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, in a food processor, add cereal and pulse till fine crumbs form. Place crumbs into a shallow bowl. In a second shallow bowl, add eggs and 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat lightly.
  4. Dip ice cream balls, 1 at a time in beaten eggs and then coat with crumbs. Shake off extra crumbs. Place the coated balls into muffin cups and freeze for about 1 hour. Refrigerate the remaining beaten egg and crumbs.
  5. Dip the ice cream balls in eggs again and then, coat with crumbs the same way. Again, freeze for about 1 hour.
  6. Meanwhile, in a medium pan, add remaining 1 cup of sugar and 1½ cups of water over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes, beating occasionally. Add cocoa powder, cinnamon, chile powder and salt and beat till well combined. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Keep the sauce warm.
  7. In a large pan, heat 1 1/2-inches of vegetable oil to 375 degrees and fry ice cream balls in batches for about 10-15 seconds or till golden brown. With a slotted spoon, transfer ice cream balls onto a paper towel lined baking sheet to drain. Serve immediately with the topping of warm chocolate sauce.
