Ever ordered a sopiopilla from your favorite local restaurant? You will be surprised at how easy they are to make.

You will need..

Canned cinnamon rolls



Flatten cinnamon rolls out till they are thin. To get the full size of restaurants, they use two together.

Deep fry

Let sit a few moments then sprinkle with cinnamon and top with honey.

Fried Ice Cream

This has always been one of my favorite, although depending on where you go. Some restaurants do not fry the ice cream at all, merely cover it in frosted flakes. This is unacceptable in my mind.

You will need..

Vanilla Ice Cream

Graham crackers


Make several balls out of the ice cream, you choose the size, the quickly roll in crushed graham crackers. Refreeze the balls immediately for at least an hour. Please note, you can make up several ahead of time and wrap in aluminum foil, they will stay viable for at least a month.

For the next step a deep fryer would be optimal, although a small amount of grease on high heat in a pan can work as well. Flash fry the ball quickly- 3 seconds for deep fryer. For pan method, quickly roll the ball around in med high heat oil. If your ball starts leaking too much ice cream, stop and top.

Best served with just a little honey on top, although go all out with chocolate, whip crem and nuts if you so choose.
