Honey Bunches Fried ice Cream Done 2

This post is brought to you by Honey Bunches of Oats. All opinions are my own. I have always wanted to try making fried ice cream, but the idea of frying something that melts at room temperature?

I received a My Juicer from Ergo Chef to try out in exchange for an honest review. I was really […] Read more »
