Total Time
2 hrs 30 mins
Servings: 12 ice cream sandwiches
  • 1 cup corn syrup divided
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter divided
  • 8 cups Rice Krispies cereal divided
  • 1-1/2 quarts vanilla ice cream
  1. Line a 13" x 9" dish with heavy duty foil, overlapping the sides by a couple of inches. Spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter with 1/2 cup corn syrup in a large mixing bowl. Add 4 cups Rice Krispies and mix until well combined. Pour the cereal mixture into the foil-lined dish. Spray your hands with a little non-stick cooking spray and pat the mixture down evenly into the dish. Alternately, use a small piece of wax paper to pat the mixture down. Place the dish in the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until cereal mixture is firm.
  3. Mix together remaining 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup corn syrup in a large bowl and remaining 4 cups Rice Krispies. Combine well and set aside.
  4. Remove ice cream from freezer and allow to soften at room temperature for about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove dish with cereal mixture from freezer and spread the softened vanilla ice cream evenly over the top. Pour out the 2nd layer of cereal mixture over the top and pat down on top of ice cream in same manner as before. Return dish to the freezer and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  6. Remove dish from freezer and use foil overhang to remove the contents from the dish. Place on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut into bars. Wrap bars individually in wax paper, plastic wrap, or foil and store in freezer.
Optional Add-ins:These bars are delicious in their most simple form but you can jazz them up by adding any of the following ingredients on top of the ice cream layer:
  1. crushed Oreos, chopped peanuts, toffee bits, chocolate chips, chopped candy bars (Butterfinger, Snickers, etc.), a drizzle of caramel or fudge ice cream topping
