Not So "Fried" Ice Cream (Weight Watchers)

Hope Vaillancourt


If you have never had Fried Ice Cream, you’re really missing out, and I do mean REALLY missing out! This is a lighter version of the fried and delicious goodness you find at mexican restaurants. This version is just as yummy but by baking the cereal in the oven for a little while gives it a nice toasty crispy flavor. This recipe is 7 WW Points Plus and makes 2 servings.
