  • 1
    In food processor or large resealable food-storage plastic bag, combine 5 cups Cinnamon Chex™ cereal, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon and dash ground red pepper (cayenne). Process or use rolling pin to crush cereal. Pour into shallow dish.
  • 2
    Remove chocolate ice cream from freezer. Scoop out 3 baseball-size ice cream balls (or larger balls if you want a thinner coating or smaller balls if you want a thicker coating); shape each into an even ball.
  • 3
    Immediately drop shaped ice cream ball into cereal mixture; roll to evenly coat, pressing cereal mixture around outer surface for desired thickness of coating. Repeat with remaining balls.
  • 4
    Serve immediately topped with honey or other desired toppings, or place coated balls in airtight container in freezer (without toppings) and freeze until serving time.
