Crispy Butter Pecan Ice Cream Cake



From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This dessert is the adult version of an ice cream cake that I make often for my grandchildren. It is really easy to assemble and it is surprising good for something that requires so little effort. The original version of the cake came from Real Simple magazine and it can be seen here. If you glance through their recipe, you can see that this is an easy recipe to make your own. The flavor combinations are limited only by the imagination of the cook and the cake is a lovely finish to an informal summer meal. The Silver Fox and I like the butterscotch version but our little guys were really fond of a peanut butter and chocolate combination that I made for them. I hope you'll give this a try with favorite flavors of your own. Here are the directions for my favorite version of the cake.

Crispy Butter Pecan Ice Cream Cake...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite inspired by Real Simple Magazine

Ingredients:
8 ounces butterscotch chips, melted
4 cups crisped rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
2 pints butter pecan ice cream, slightly softened
2 cups whipped topping

Directions:
1) Combine melted butterscotch chips and cereal in a large bowl. Toss until cereal is completely coated. Set aside 1 cup of mixture for later use. Spray a 9-inch springform pan with nonstick spray. Lightly press 3 cups of coated cereal into bottom of pan. Do not pack. Freeze just until firm, about 10 minutes.
2) Spread ice cream in prepared crust and freeze, covered, until firm, for at least 2 hours and up to 3 day. Just before serving, spread top of cake with whipped topping and sprinkle with reserved
coated cereal. Yield: 8 servings.

This looks yummy, I loooove butter pecan ice cream, and the crust is one that seems like it could be reused for other kid-friendly pies. I've gotten some great ideas from Real Simple, too!

Ice cream cake is so delicious, but definitely more difficult to make than regular cake. Great flavor combo. I think I'd really enjoy the butterscotch cake as well. :)

Butterscotch is totally my undoing. I'm horrible about sitting on the couch and eating the chips...

This is a good way to preempt me from chip munching :)
