Line shallow pan with waxed paper. Scoop ice cream into 8 (1/2-cup) scoops; place in prepared pan. Freeze 2 hours or until very firm. Meanwhile, process corn flakes, coconut and 1 tsp. cinnamon in food processor until finely chopped. Pour into shallow dish.

Whisk egg whites in medium bowl until frothy. Add ice cream balls, 1 at a time to egg whites, then crumb mixture, turning to evenly coat each ball with each ingredient. Return to prepared pan. Freeze 4 hours.

Heat oil to 375 degrees F in medium saucepan. Use slotted spoon to carefully add 2 ice cream balls, 1 at a time, to hot oil; cook 15 to 20 sec. or until golden brown. Transfer to serving bowl. Repeat with remaining ice cream balls.

Melt chocolate as directed on package. Add COOL WHIP; whisk until blended.

Serve ice cream balls topped with chocolate mixture; sprinkle with remaining cinnamon.

Tip 1: Make Ahead
