I used the recipe as a base, but changed it around to accommodate what I already had in the kitchen. For the crust, I used Honey Bunches of Oats cereal mixed with a little graham cracker crumbs, crunchy pb, and only 3 tbs corn syrup. Then for the filling I mixed vanilla ice cream with 2 bars of crushed butterfingers. I then sprinkled a little reserved crust and butterfingers on top. It came out great and I got lots of compliments on it. Read More

This is a family favorite. The recipe I have from years ago called "Drumstick Pie" calls for Cocoa Krispies cereal. It tastes just like a drumstick, one of my DH's favorite ice cream treat. Read More

I made this for a picnic and it was a big hit. Very yummy! I used Honey Bunches of Oats cereal and it didn't fit in a pie plate. I ended up using a springform pan and it worked great. I used only 3 tablespoons of the corn syrup so it wouldn't be too sweet. Next time I'll probably try honey instead of corn syrup. This is a keeper!! Read More

Can you say Peanut Buster Bar Pie? I changed the recipe slightly for the ingredients I had on hand. I used a graham cracker crust spread warmed hot funge on bottom sprinkled spanish peanuts on top spread on thawed vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate sauce and more spanish peanuts and froze. YUM!!! Read More

This is good! I did not have any peanuts so I used crunchy peanut butter. Instead of a honey-nut corn flake I used Wheaties; it was still a tad sweet for our tastes. I used Pralines & Cream ice cream and topped it with a bit of caramel. The flavors worked well together; it was again just a bit sweet for us. I'm sure I'll try this again at some point but I'll leave out the corn syrup. Additionally I think I'll try Peanut Butter and Chocolate ice cream topped with a bit of chocolate syrup. Thanks for the great dessert! Read More
