1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 cups crisp rice cereal
2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
In a 3qt saucepan cook the butter and brown sugar until the sugar dissolves.
Mix the cereal, coconut and nuts. Add the caramel mixture and stir until well mixed. Press half of the cereal mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Spread the softened ice cream over the cereal mixture. Top with the remaining cereal mix. Freeze until firm.
