Question: Frozen Rice Krispies Dessert

By Cindy 8 9

When I was younger I used to go to my friend's house and spend the weekends. My friend's step-mom used to make a dessert, that was so good. It was made with Rice Krispies, ice cream, and chocolate, but I can't remember what else.

The Rice Krispies were mixed with something to make the bottom layer (maybe mixed like Rice Krispies treats?). I think the ice cream was softened then put over the bottom layer, then put back in the freezer to harden. Then you melted chocolate and drizzled it over top of the whole thing and froze again to harden the chocolate.

She always made it in a 13 inch x 9 inch pan. Have any of you ever heard of something like this? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Recipe: Coconut Snowball Krispies

Light and fluffy bite size treats.


  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups rice krispies
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch


Separate the eggs when they're cold but wait until they're at room temperature for the most volume when whipping. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat to 200 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Beat the egg whites and salt with a whisk until thick and foamy in a large bowl. Sprinkle in the confectioners' sugar and beat at high speed until firm and glossy, about 5 minutes.

Toss together the coconut, rice cereal and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Gently fold in to the egg mixture until combined.

Drop rounded teaspoons of the mixture about 1 inch apart on to the cookie sheets. Bake until firm and dry to the touch, about 1 hour. Allow to cool completely.

Recipe: Cocoa Mixed Rice Krispies

By lori macDonald 23 56

These are the best ones I've ever eaten!


  • 4 1/2 cups regular rice krispies
  • 1 1/2 cups cocoa rice krispies
  • 3 Tbsp. oleo
  • 10 oz bag of marshmallows


Melt butter on stove, melt marshmallows letting them singe just a smidgeon (kind of like campfire marshmallows just barely singed light brown, careful!). Mix in all of rice krispies. Pat out in buttered 13x9 inch pan. These were what I thought going to be a boo-boo when they got singed a little. But boy I had a Eureka moment, I thought this is like my beloved campfire marshmallows. Wow, do I ever love them and will make them this way from here on out! Family is gobbling them up quickly, lol!
