rice krispy ice cream pie

...approved by my former 8 year old self, my current 29 year old self aaaand a husband ;)


i made this bday dessert for my husband dearest on his day of birth back in may and a couple of people asked for the recipe! so hey! here i am! only took me two months ;) but its easy. and soo worth the wait! growing up i didn't really like cake, so for my birthday my mom would always make an ice cream rice krispy pie, my favorite. then and now, always and forever, amen.  and because tradition runs deep in these bones and heart of mine, i like to make it for austin and knowing myself like i do, i will prooobably make it for our kids one day too. [but if they muuust have a cake, well let them eat cake! but ice cream rice kripy pie will probably be there too ;)]   

you will need:

  • half gallon of your favorite ice cream
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups of rice krispies
  • 3 tablespoons of butter or margarine
  • pam cooking spray

directions:

  • spray pam on the bottom of the pie plate, take out ice cream from freezer to thaw so its easier to work with
  • to make the crust: melt 3 tablespoon margarine or butter in large saucepan over low heat
  • add marshmallows and stir until completely melted
  • remove from heat
  • mix in 6 cups rice krispy
  • stir until well coated
  • spread the rice krispy mixture in pie plate, add ice cream and freeze!
