  1. In a bowl, combine the cereal, brown sugar, peanuts and coconut. Drizzle with butter; stir until combined. Press half of the mixture into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. dish. Cut ice cream into 3/4-in.-thick slices; arrange evenly over crust. Top with remaining crumb mixture; press down lightly. Cover and freeze until serving.


  • Editor's Note: Purchase a rectangular-shaped package of ice cream for the easiest cutting.

Thanks for a long lost recipe! I used to make this as a child, making ice cream balls and rolling them in the mixture. Be sure to serve with Hershey's syrup.
