Granola Bar Fried Ice Cream w/ Creme’ Anglaise Recipe

August 12, 2016

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!
