Rice Krispy Treat Ice Cream

Rice Krispy Treat Ice Cream - get the recipe at
I actually dreamed of this ice cream one night after making Rice Krispy Treats for a late-night snack. (Doesn't everyone dream of food?) I woke up the day after I dreamed it, chopped a few of the remaining Rice Krispy Treats into tiny pieces and started churning a batch of ice cream. It doesn't happen every time, but when a recipe idea turns out even better in reality than in my imagination, it is a very happy day.

Chewy bites of Rice Krispy Treats are sprinkled throughout this smooth, creamy vanilla ice cream. I can not resist this ice cream when it is in the freezer. I've made this three times already and I can't get enough of it. As a self-declared Rice Krispy Addict, this ice cream and I are a perfect match.

Rice Krispy Treat Ice Cream
Yield: 5-6 servings
(printable recipe)

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
2/3 cups sugar
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract, or 1 vanilla bean, scraped
4 Perfect Rice Krispy Treats, (about 3 cups worth, chopped very small)

Whisk together the cream, milk, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Pour into the ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions. While the ice cream is churning, use a very sharp knife to slice the Rice Krispy Treats into very small 1/4" - 1/2" pieces.

When the ice cream finishes churning, scoop the ice cream into a freezer-safe airtight container and stir in about 3 cups worth of the chopped up Rice Krispy Treats. Freeze until ready to serve. Enjoy!
