I like to start my meal prep with dessert. I sandwich vanilla ice cream with layers of cereal, peanuts and coconut. Then I put it in the freezer until it’s ready to serve!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups crushed Rice Chex
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream

Directions

In a large 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. 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. Yield: 12-15 servings.
Editor's Note: Purchase a rectangular-shaped package of ice cream for the easiest cutting.

"I had this last night at a friends house and it was very good. She made it with Butter Pecan ice cream and pecans. When I make it, I'll use light margarine instead of butter to save a few calories."
