Light and fluffy bite size treats.
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.
Source: Tried these for the first time last year and I think found the recipe at the Kellogg's Rice Krispies recipe site.

Melt the butter and the sugar. Pour over the Rice Krispies, coconut, and the nuts. Press 2/3 of this mixture into a 9x13 inch pan. Freeze this until firm. Remove the box around the ice cream and slice into 1 1/2 inch slabs and spread over bottom. Cover with remaining mixture. Freeze.

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.

Sounds good! Give it a try with the Rice Krispies treats and if that doesn't taste just right (it might be just a little too sweet) then try it with the basic graham cracker crust, substituting Rice Krispies for the graham crackers. Go ahead and add a little cinnamon to the baked (graham cracker) crust. Let us know how it turns out.

I haven't tried any of these recipes. Maybe one of them is what you are looking for. Good luck.
