Sherbet Surprise Recipe

From Mankato, Kansas, Barbara Thomas shares this frozen dessert that's an attractive change of pace from ice cream cakes. Scoops of pineapple, raspberry and lime sherbet top a crunchy crust of crisp rice cereal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:12-15 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal, finely crushed
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) whipped topping, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pint each pineapple, raspberry and lime sherbet

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the butter, cereal and brown sugar until crumbly. Set aside 3/4 cup for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. dish.

"Would this work using Splenda instead of sugar? I need to cut down on sugar, but the recipe sounds great?

"I love this recipe- I have used it many times- it's quite refreshing, and yet my only complaint is that I love the "crust" and reserved crumbs so much that I now make a little more than the recipe asks for- because you want it w/ every bite!"
