David Chang's Pan Fried Donut Over Melted Ice Cream

Ever stumble upon a recipe that's so simple yet so genius you think, "Why didn't I come up with that?" Well, that's exactly what happened when I saw this creation by none other than the culinary wizard, David Chang. He's the mind behind pan fried @krispykreme doughnut over melted ice cream and topped with more @milkbarstore ice cream magic.

Doughnuts or Donuts?

But here's the kicker—not everyone can snag that @milkbarstore ice cream off the shelf. So, I thought, why not whip up something inspired by Chang's brilliance with what's already in the kitchen?

If you've got some vanilla ice cream and a box of your favorite cereal, you're halfway there. Just let the ice cream melt, stir in the cereal, and let it sit. You're basically infusing the ice cream with all that nostalgic cereal goodness.

And for the grand finale? Those leftover Krispy Kreme donuts you didn't know what to do with. Give them a quick sear for a delightful contrast to the creamy, cereal-infused ice cream. It's like a little nod to Chang's innovative cooking, right in your home.

So if you're feeling a bit adventurous or just want to try a dessert that's out of the ordinary, this is your chance. It's easy, quick, and uses up leftovers—what's not to love? It's a fun little project that pays off with a dessert that's sure to impress. After all, it's not every day you get to say you made a David Chang-inspired dish with last night's snack and breakfast staples.
