Not fried Fried Ice Cream

Don't be fooled by my title, just because I call it not fried fried ice cream does not in any way mean it is healthy! I came across this recipe a week ago and I am currently obsessed. It is good just as a topping on ice cream, sprinkled on top, or you assemble it in a 9x13 pan with the crumb topping on the top and bottom. I decided to make ice cream balls and roll them in the topping. It is really sweet, with a hint of cinammon and the perfect amount of crunch. I love rice krispies on my vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce, this takes it a whole step (or several) further.

Fried Ice Cream Topping
adapted from Clouse Cousins

3 C. Rice Krispies
1 C. Brown Sugar
1 C. chopped pecans
1 1/4 C. coconut
1/2 C. butter
1/2 teaspoon cinammon

Preheat oven to 300. Melt butter and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Bake for 30 minutes on a cookie sheet, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool and prepare in either a cake pan, as fried ice cream balls or just put it in a sealed container and do what I did : put ridiculous amounts on my vanilla ice cream with it and caramel when my kids were in bed and indulge! Go ahead, you deserve it!
