Ice Cream Salad

Just a little treat, from me to you an you. This is my FAVORITE summer dessert.

Tastes like a plate full of Ice Cream Drumsticks!
1 C Brown Sugar
1 Stick Butter or Margarine

2 C Rice Chex (crushed)
2 C Shredded Coconut
1 C Almonds (sliced)
8" x 8" pan
Melt Butter and Brown Sugar together . . microwave or stove top is fine

Add Rice Chex, nuts and coconut, mix well
Press 1/2 of the mixture into the bottom of the pan.

Cover mixture with Ice Cream . . spread to edges of pan.
Top with remaining butter/brown sugar mixture.
Cover with foil and freeze.
Leave out 5 - 10 minutes to soften, cut into squares and serve.

I have used Crispix, Rice Krispies and Frosted Flakes cereals in both name brand and generic. The generic tastes just as good, if not better.
2. Butter or margarine . . mixed with brown sugar they both taste great!
3. Normally, I make a double recipe of the topping mixture . . . I want a nice top and bottom "crust."
