Some would call it Evil Genious

Others would call it just plain wrong.

Whatever YOU decide to call it, I call it "Ghetto Fried" Ice Cream.

The Evil Genious known in these here parts as "Dad", "JP",and "Mr. Cave Hair", the Master of All the Should Not Be dissappeared from the bedroom two evening's ago. In his absence I heard the freezer open, the distinct rustling sound of a bag of cereal, and the unmistakable pop-thud-clink that is Mr. Cavehair extracting peanut butter from its cozy home in the Skippy jar.

He returned to the bedroom baring a smile of pure delight and told me to close my eyes. I'm always up for a surprise and so I quite joyfully cooperated. Of course he had to tease me just a bit and put an empty spoon in my mouth first, but then came the sweet delight forever more known as "Ghetto Fried" Ice Cream.

It was so good, we knew we had to make it for the kids on Friday night, so we did and I insisted on blogging it. ( I think Mr. Cavehair was actually quite flattered, as he was quite cooperative with my silly picture taking!)

This is a child's bowl being prepared. Be warned, if JP makes your bowl it will be approximately equal parts vanilla ice cream and peanut butter. I personally find the peanut butter to be totally and completely unecessary, you can be your own judge on that.

So, you need vanilla ice cream, Honey-Bunches of Oats cereal, honey, and peanut butter ( that is SO optional!).
Put your ice cream in your bowl, mash your peanut butter into your ice cream, generously cover your serving in Honey Bunches of Oats, and then drizzle the whole lot with Honey.

If you're serving it up CaveHair style, it will need to be mushed all together. Cleaning the sides of the bowl before allowing a picture to be taken would be highly irrational, this is about taste, not presentation. Also, if you do not have a pair of sunglasses to place on the counter next to your food preparation station, don't worry, its not actually a recommended practice.

Now, if you've ever had expensive Fried Ice Cream at a "Mexican" restaurant ( I put "Mexican" in parenthesis because I am 99.99% certain that if I went down to say, Michoacan, I would have a very difficult time finding any fried ice cream, Chimi-Cheesecakes, or even Burritos) you will recognize the taste immediately!

Seriously, this tastes to much like the real thing that I'll bet the real thing won't even taste this good if I ever order it out again.

So there you have it, "Ghetto-Fried" Ice Cream. Now go back and read that part about the bedroom picturing me in Flannel Pajamas festooned with pink elephants on ice-skates. (yeah, the one's from Target, I got them for Christmas from my 14 year old).

The little scrapings of peanut butter on the side of the bowl kind of make me want to gag, but besides that, ghetto fried ice cream sounds kinda good!

Jillene said...

YUMMY!! I think that my family needs to try this!!

Kristina P. said...

Peanut butter is NOT optional. That is the best part! This sounds delicious!

And here I am without any Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal.
Wold frosted mini wheats work just as well?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

ramsam said...

I have had this - only with Golden Grahams and hot fudge sauce instead of honey.....and yea, no peanut butter. It is quite delish.

Ramona! You're back! You gotta try it with the Honey Bunches of Oats. Its so much more authentic tasting.

If however anybody is just feeling lazy and wants really good ice-cream without all the work of doctoring it up, the Apple Fried Ice Cream at Walmart is yum! and the Raspberry White Chocolate Ice Cream from Safeway is even yummier.

And so now I am an ice cream connosieur. LOL

Juracan Family said...

"Ghetto Fried"...LOL! I love it!!

Hartson family said...

Yum, this is a must try for our house and a friend whose favorite cereal is mentioned here. And by the way---I bought those elephant jammies too (30% off).

shannon said...

YO! I'm down wit dat icecream!
That's my version of ghetto talk for "love the icecream combination--the flavors work nicely together".

I love your blog banner--You're a clever gal...I'm glad Katie forwarded your blog to me.

clan of the cave hair said...

Mina, I made that header myself! Thank you...or rather, I should say I found a picture I liked and edited it to make it into the header I wanted.

Peanut butter is ALWAYYYS good. It's like Ranch dressing or BBQ sauce- it goes on EVERYTHING. lol

J. P. said...

the "Original" had some chocolate syrup on it too, but we were out for round 2

The Wixom Zoo said...

Yep, gonna try this one! I'll bet it'll even be allowed on my "New Year's Resolution Diet"... What do you think?

J. P. said...

well Wixom, it had "milk", "protein" ( peanut butter....right?) and "whole grains"...(hey, the box claims there are whole grains in there, who am I to argue?)
Yeah, let me know how that works out.

Do I just crack up every single time I visit or WHAT!
I have pink elephants on skates seared in my imagination now.
I left you an award over at my place b/c if there ever was a professional lemonade maker - it is YOU!

just out of curiosity, why has nobody corrected me on the fact that those are not PARENTHESIS around "Mexican" but rather QUOTATION MARKS?
