I had the perfect dessert today at my friend, Dorothy's house.  It is 105 degrees today and it feels like it. She said it was a recipe she had gotten from a neighbor.  Dorothy especially likes that you can use any flavor of ice cream that you like.  She had chosen strawberry today.  (Good choice!) I liked that it is a wonderful way to serve ice cream.  The added Rice Krispies, coconut, and pecans also made it the perfect afternoon treat on a really hot day.

So when Dorothy served it today, I asked her if I could share it on my blog and she was delighted.  



               1/2     gallon ice cream, any flavor, square block package
               1        stick of margarine
               2 1/2  cups Rice Krispies
               1        cup flaked coconut
               1/2     cup chopped pecans
               1/2     cup brown sugar


               Preheat oven to 330 degrees F.  Using a 9  x  13 inch pan, melt the margarine.  Then add the cereal, nuts, and coconuts.  Stir.  Return pan to oven and restir about every 3 minutes.  Watch closely that the mixture doesn't burn.  When it starts to brown, (may take 10 min or so) remove the pan from the oven and add 1/2  cup of brown sugar. Stir and let cool.

               After this mixture has cooled, remove half of it from the pan and set it aside.  Press the half that you left in the pan down evenly in the bottom of the pan.

               Tear the package from the ice cream and slice it evenly into 6 pieces.  Fit these slices on the crumb mixture in the pan.  Top with the remaining crumb mixture and freeze until serving time.

If you choose to make this dessert, I know you won't be disappointed.  Let me know how it turns out.
