Ice an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop to form 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll them in cereal to form a thick even coating. Then place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet to freeze for at least 30 minutes until hard.

Fill a deep fryer or medium saucepan with 3 inches of oil and heat to 375°F. Remove ice cream balls from the freezer and gently lowers them 1-2 at a time into the hot oil. Fry for no more than 10 seconds and then remove to a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat for the remaining balls.
