4 cups crisped rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
2 pints mint chocolate-chip ice cream, slightly softened
In a large bowl, combine the chocolate and cereal until the cereal is completely coated. Transfer to a 9-inch springform pan. Press the mixture into the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of the pan. Freeze just until firm, 5 to 10 minutes.
Spread the ice cream in the prepared crust and freeze, covered, until firm, for at least 2 hours and up to 3 days.
Candy canes aren’t just for sucking… to give one fresh breath in a pinch before meeting the (future or present) in-laws and/or greeting the folks at church.
Candy Cane Cake
Have your cake and candy canes… Eat them too!
Take an angel food cake….”frost” it with whipped cream and top it with crushed candy canes. YUMMY! (And, a way to impress a few of your family members at the holiday meal without a lot of effort…. but don’t tell them that!)
Sprinkle your crushed candy canes like it was “fairy dust” on goodies like cookies and brownies… making your favorites more festive.
…yet another idea…
