Rice Krispies Ice Cream Pie

Don't you just love treats with Rice Krispies in 'em? Mixed with chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch chips, marshmallows, just about anything you add to the crispy little critters, you can't go wrong. Their very presence yells, "PARTY!"

Do I hear an amen?

So with this simple concoction, a crunchily delicious pie crust that you smush into the bottom of a pan then top with softened ice cream. Add, of course, any other toppings you find crucial to your happiness.

RICE KRISPIES PIE CRUST
4 c. crispy rice cereal
1 c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. butter

Butter a springform pan (the kind you use to make cheesecake). Set aside.

Pour Rice Krispies into large bowl.

In saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate and butter.
Pour melted chocolate mixture over cereal and stir to coat.


Pour cereal mixture into prepared pan. Smush down to make crust. (I use plastic wrap and my hand to do the smushing.) Freeze for about 30 minutes.

After about 15 minutes, take out from the freezer your favorite ice cream flavor (or three) and set on counter to soften. When ice cream has softened (about 15 minutes), remove crust from freezer, and fill with the ice cream. One regular carton of ice cream should be enough, or three smallish, Ben & Jerry's-type cartons for a special occasion.


Fill 'er up. Place back in freezer to harden a bit.




A few minutes before you're ready to serve, remove sides of pan. Cut pie into wedges (warning: the crust will be firm and a tad bit of sawing with serrated knife necessary). Top with chocolate sauce, raspberry sauce, marshmallow sauce -- whatever floats your boat.


Voila! C'est magnifique! (Sorry, that's my high school French coming out. If I knew how to say "instant party," I would, but I got only as far as French II. Tant pis. Which, I am hoping, means "too bad.")

My jaw dropped when I saw that you commented on my blog. You're famous! Loved your book - and reviewed it last Spring on my blog.

If you ever want to guest post or do a giveaway, I'd love it.

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog. Judging by your content, I am intrigued at how you got to the land of Scobberlotch, but now that you've found it - stop by often. I think I just gained a few pounds from my visit to yours so it's a fair request. And yes, scobberlotch is a real word, one that I am growing to love! It is inspired by the lives of my two lazy dogs, whose whole life can be sumed up thus.

Cheers!

FishMama -- You make me laugh. Hardly "famous" but happy to have had a book published. And glad you liked it. Thanks for the review :) I'd be happy to do a guest post and a giveaway. Let's talk.

Scobberlotcher -- I came to visit your blog via shouldbereading.wordpress.com, who hosts "Teaser Tuesdays" where people can leave a couple sentences about books they've been reading. When I saw that your blog was called Scobberlotch, and that it was apparently really and truly a word, I just had to come by and check it out myself :)

Hi Lynn. Glad you liked the Flood baseball book - I haven't read it yet myself - will probably be the next sports themed one I pick up.

I loved your Teaser which you posted on our page - my first thoughts were - oh dear, I'm one of those students!!! I do not do well with criticism at all.

And stop posting these recipes with peanut butter in them - my weakness.

Just wanted to say I've used this recipe many times. I use nut butter instead of butter, and homemade dairy-free ice cream. With gluten-free Rice Krispies, it's a GF DF treat the family can all enjoy. Thanks!
