Makes 20-25 ice cream balls, depending on size.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint Arctic Zero Chocolate ice cream
  • 1 bag cinnamon sugar pita chips (Stacy’s makes a great product)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

  • In your food processor, blitz the pita chips and cinnamon together until you have a fine, sandy mixture. If you don’t have a food processor, you can chop the chips finely, or place them in a bag and crush them.
  • Transfer your mix into a shallow bowl. Using a ½ tablespoon scoop, scoop up the ice cream into a round, even ball. Using your hands, roll the ice cream ball in the sandy mixture until thoroughly covered. Place on a plate or sheet pan, and continue working until you’ve used up all your ice cream.
  • Freeze your ice cream balls for at least 30 minutes, or as long as you like, before serving.

Extra additions: You can wrap a piece of strawberry, banana, chocolate, or almonds inside the ice cream before you coat them in the sandy mixture.
