I don’t know about you but when I think of summer I think of fun! Lots of time outside enjoying the sun, grilling dinner and eating on the deck. Desserts should be easy, fun and if you ask me full of ice cream. If asked to come up with a sweet way to celebrate summer I can’t think of anything better than a Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Sandwich.

A Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Sandwich?

One of my favorite snacks ever is the Rice Krispies Treat. In some ways it is perfection. But I got to thinking – can perfection be improved upon? Upon deliberation I decided that yes, it can be with a simple addition of another bit of perfection – vanilla ice cream. Then I wondered how I had never considered this before. The idea is so simple yet so brilliant – if I do say so myself.

There are two ways you can go with this; basic and fancy. I’ll show you both ways. Either one is DE-LICIOUS and they are both easy. The fancy way just gilds the treat with a layer of chocolate.

Yes….chocolate, Rice Krispies Treats and ice cream.

You can thank me later.

But first let me tell you about the hot deal at Target so you can save money before you go make nirvana on a plate.

Save at Target Before You Treat Yourself

I love going in to the Target in Missoula because the associates are so happy. On this particular trip I had a diverse shopping list and I found everything I needed in short order. The Rice Krispies were in the cereal aisle and I bought some Chips Deluxe cookies to add a bit of extra-extra to the ice cream sandwiches. You’ll see how in the recipe below.

Now for the savings I told you about: from 5/18 – 7/12  you get $1 when you purchase Rice Krispies Cereal and Jet-Puffed Marshmallows at checkout. Plus with Cartwheel you will get 10% off Keebler Cookies  – from 5/21 – 7/8.

How’s that for savings?

Now that you’ve done your shopping are you ready to make some fun summer treats?

Put the Chips Deluxe cookies in a bag and whack them with a rolling pin to crush them.

How Were They?

Seriously people, do you have to ask?

I mean we are talking Rice Krispies Treats, chocolate, ice cream and cookies. How could they not be good?! They were more than good actually – they were even better than I thought they would be. All of those singularly perfect flavors came together to create a new taste treat that I will be making again. And again and again.

Yum is just the beginning. I might have eaten two in a row but that could also be a rumor started by the Farm cats. The hubby is also a fan and he’s a man who tends to like his ice cream in a bowl. I may have converted him – time will tell. I’ll just have to make them again.

And again and again. ;)
