Is it hard or easy to make Fried Chicken Ice Cream?

It is not hard to make fried chicken ice cream and it is not easy as well. It is somehow a tricky process in which you have to do work carefully and promptly. I recommend you to have any of your friends or a helping hand with you, that will help you to hold things fast.

The melting ice cream is definitely difficult to handle. But the actual task begins when you have to cover it with slightly hot chocolate. Once the ice cream has been dipped, the heat from the chocolate melts it, contaminating the chocolate and causing it to seize. As a result, the chocolate can only be dipped once or twice before it becomes completely useless.

Having a second person ready to provide you with freshly melted chocolate for each drumstick is the only way to make these sweets without going completely insane. You will have no more than 10 seconds to swiftly cover the drumstick in the crushed cornflakes because the chocolate will quickly harden.
