Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 8 oz semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1/4 cup coloured sprinkles
Rice Crisp Squares:
  • 5 cups marshmallows (about 40)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 5 cups rice crisp cereal

Method

Line bottom of 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) metal cake pan with parchment paper; grease sides. Set aside.

Rice Crisp Squares: In saucepan over medium-low heat, melt marshmallows with butter, stirring constantly, until smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.

Add half of the cereal to pan; stir until combined. Add remaining cereal; stir to coat completely. Scrape into greased bowl; let cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes. Using greased hands, press firmly into prepared pan; let cool completely.

Run knife around edges of pan; remove from pan and peel off paper. Cut crosswise in half. Spread 1 half evenly with ice cream; place remaining half on top. Wrap in plastic wrap; freeze in airtight container until firm, about 4 hours. Cut into 6 squares; cut each in half diagonally.

Meanwhile, in heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate; let cool. Dip 1 corner of triangle halfway into chocolate; smooth with knife. Place coloured sprinkles on waxed paper; press chocolate edge into sprinkles. Wrap individually in plastic wrap; freeze in airtight container until firm, at least 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Freeze for up to 2 days.)
