  • Place the Rice Krispie lined pie plate into the freezer until frozen.
  • Once the crust is frozen, allow the ice cream to thaw slightly so that it is soft enough to spread out. When it has thawed enough, remove the crust from the freezer, add the ice cream, and spread it out evenly into the crust.
  • Sprinkle the reserved Rice Krispie mixture evenly over the top of the pie. Place the pie into the freezer until it is firm.
  • To serve, remove from the freezer a few minutes before serving so it is easier to cut.
