Place leftover grits into a casserole dish and refrigerate until grits are firm and set.
Preheat oil to 360F. Cut the grits into 1-inch by 1-inch squares, and carefully drop in the oil and fry until crisped. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. While still warm, sprinkle generously with confectioners sugar.
Meanwhile, warm your favorite marmalade in a small saucepot until heated through, being careful not to burn. You can add a little water if necessary to thin out the consistency.
To serve, scoop vanilla ice cream over the squares of fried grits, and drizzle marmalade over top.
