Tempura ice cream is a Japanese dessert with the perfect balance between hot and cold flavors. Frozen ice cream balls are covered in tempura batter, then fried until golden and crispy. Each bite will leave you craving more!
Using an ice cream scoop or spoon, scoop out balls of ice cream on a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate. Place them in your freezer.
In the meantime, cut the crusts off the pieces of bread. With a rolling pin, flatten each one.
Add a frozen ice cream ball to a slice of bread and wrap it around. If one piece doesn’t cover the ball fully, wrap another piece around.
Cover with foil or cling wrap, and twist it closed until it is tight. Place back in your freezer for a minimum of 1 hour.
Mix the flour, corn starch, and cold water in a shallow bowl and add panko crumbs to a separate bowl.
Coat the balls in tempura, then panko crumbs. Fry them in hot oil until golden.
Serve immediately as-is or with caramel and powdered sugar!
