Granola Bar Fried Ice Cream w/ Creme' Anglaise Recipe

It’s the middle of August and everyone knows that IT. IS. HOT!, so our good friend Chandice over at made us an incredible dessert using our New 4-4-8 Granola Bars! These look irresistible and will give you the cool down you need during the summer heat. Enjoy them in any of our four Bakeshop Delicious Flavors! 


  • 2 C vanilla ice cream
  • 4 Bakery on Main soft granola bars (1 of each flavor)
  • 8 Tsp. butter
  • 1/2 C heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 C whole milk
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 2 1/2 Tbl granulated sugar
  • 1-inch piece of vanilla bean cut in half and scraped
  1. Be sure to work fast! Scoop out 1/2 C ice cream and round into balls. Place on a baking sheet covered in wax paper and put in the freezer for 15-30 minutes or until completely frozen.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small frying pan, bring 2 tsp. butter and one unwrapped soft granola bar to a golden brown over medium heat. Roughly 2-3 minutes of cook time while stirring.
  3. Remove and spread out onto a silicone baking mat or wax paper in no larger than a 6-inch circumference. Repeat the process for all four granola bars. Let cool completely.
  4. Again, working very fast, remove one ball of ice cream at a time and roll in one "fried" granola bar. Smash and cover as needed to get a good coating but be speedy. Repeat with the remaining three bars then place back in the freezer until you are ready to serve.
  5. In a bowl, mix egg yolks and sugar then set aside.
  6. In a saucepan, combine milk, heavy cream and scraped vanilla bean. Heat until simmered than remove from heat. Slowly whisk in egg mixture and return to low heat. Simmer, but DON'T boil, about 5 minutes.
  7. Drizzle cooled creme' anglaise over ice cream and enjoy!
