The key ingredients in this dessert are the ice cream, rice cereal, shredded coconut, and nuts. This sweet, ice-cold dish is great for other desserts and keeps a soothing taste with the ice cream. Puffed rice often replaces rice cereal and works for this too.



  1. Soften ice cream in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together cereal, coconut, nuts, sugar and butter.
  3. Spread half of the cereal mixture into the bottom of baking dish then spoon ice cream over top smoothing with back of a spoon.
  4. Sprinkle remaining cereal mixture over top and freeze until set.
  5. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes then cut into squares. Serve cold and plain. Top with the sliced coconut meat, if desired.
