It has been hot here, and when it is hot we love ice cream.  One of my favorite ice cream desserts is this yummy recipe I am about to share. I had it at a party at my friend’s home years ago and it quickly became one of my very favorites.  It is a hit no matter where you take it, or who eats it.

It all starts with a half gallon of vanilla ice cream. This needs to be softened, so leave it on the counter while you mix the rest.  You will need rice crispies, coconut, butter, brown sugar, and walnuts.

Mix together 2 cups of the rice cereal, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup coconut, and 1 cup chopped nuts. Pour in 1 stick of melted butter and mix well.

Take half of the mixture and pat it in the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan.

Dump the ice cream in a mixing bowl and stir until softened.

Spread the ice cream over the bottom mixture then top with the remainder mixture.

Freeze until time to serve, or mixture has set. Slice and enjoy… we love to top ours with home made strawberry freezer jam, pie filling, chocolate or caramel sauce.
