Krispie Treat Ice Cream Pie is a fun spin on a boring ice cream cake! Mixing Rice Krispie Cereal with white chocolate as the crust gives this ice cream pie recipe a great crunch! There are so many flavor possibilities with this easy dessert!

The Best Summer Ice Cream Dessert

It’s August, it’s hot and ice cream pie is happening.

And really I need a reward…because today I BOSSED being an adult.

I went to the bank, went to the POST OFFICE and didn’t hide when Jehovah’s Witnesses came to my front door.

I actually opened the door and said, “No thank you, sir.”

The fact that it was actually a grandma-woman with a child and not a “sir” is besides the point.

Long story short I didn’t hide in the closet when the doorbell rang.

Also, seriously, why when someone rings the doorbell am I always scared it is either a murderer in disguise, or some here to turn off my electricity?

I have brain problems.

Because I have A) never been confronted with a murderer-type of situation and B) I have never had my electricity turned off.

Do they even come to the door to tell you? I have no idea…but in my mind apparently they do.

Also C) We totally pay our bills so I don’t even know WHY they would be here to turn off our electricity.


I guess it’s nothing a little Ice Cream Pie can’t heal. Maybe?

Rice Krispie Treat Ice Cream Pie Recipe

Also, this “pie” has a rice krispie crust…which is the best thing ever. A little crunchy krispie with ice cream never hurt no one.

All I did was mix some melted white chocolate with krispie cereal.

steps for making the krispie treat crust

I pressed it all in a spring-form pan…

And then filled it with ice cream. I chose Strawberry today because white chocolate and strawberries sounded good…but heck, you can mix any flavor ice cream in there.. even use melted milk chocolate! So many flavor combo possibilities!

And top with Cool Whip or whipped cream.. or nothing..whatever, it’s up to you!

I garnished mine with some extra strawberries cause I was feeling fancy…

  1. OOH. Looks delish. The rice krispies would give a crunchy texture to the smooth ice cream and topping. And there’s plenty room for variety and mix-ups!
    Beautiful photography as always!

    Just a random note: Did anyone else that that glass cup when you were pressing the krispies down looked like you were pouring in some sugar syrup? I thought it odd the first time around.

  2. Lindsay @ Life, Love and Sugar

    I love this ice cream pie! Great idea with the rice krispies on the bottom! And glad to know I’m not the only one who hides when the doorbell rings. Usually it’s someone trying to sell something and waste my time. Our front door has windows so I’m usually hiding behind a wall and trying to peek around the corner. 🙂

  3. So I just learned I have no cool whip…. You think some heavy whipping cream beat to heck would do?

  4. Karen @ Sugartown Sweets

    Your krispie treat ice cream pie looks so yummy! I just had to leave a comment here beacuse..I call my husband (EVERY TIME) when my doorbell rings! I’m freaking out on the cell phone, running upstairs to try to look out the window to see who could possibly be ringing my bell right smack in the middle of daytime! Soo happy to know I’m not the only nutty girl out there! Haha.. 🙂

    If I come across the river and ring your doorbell, will you open the door and give me a slice of this?

  7. Katie @ Butterlust

    hahah I can totally relate — every time i hear a knock at my door (no doorbell) I have a panic moment where my first urge is to freeze and drop to the floor so they can’t see me. just in case they are reverse looking through the peep hole. totally normal. LOVE LOVE LOVE this ice cream cake — I’ve been craving all things rice krispie lately!

  8. Heather @ Shard of Lavender

    Cheers to being an adult, Shelly! I still hide most of the time when my doorbell rings, mostly because we live in a rural area and it always seems to be someone trying to sell something. And I just don’t do well with having to say no… Your ice cream pie looks so delicious with the rice krispie crust!

  9. lower back pain sciatica
