Cornflake and Ice Cream Dessert Recipe

As a young child, my piano teacher Mrs. McAsh had the best recipe for an easy frozen treat. She gave my Mother this wonderful recipe, and she made it often! I remember it once feeding an entire audience at a church variety show. Now there’s a picture. I wonder how many pans of the dessert were needed to feed the crowd that evening!

At any rate, this is easy, and good. Try it, you’ll agree!

Mrs. McAsh’s Ice Cream Dessert

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1/3 Cup Butter

3 Cups Cornflakes Cereal (whole, not crushed)

1 Cup Chopped Nuts such as Walnuts

1 Box Vanilla Ice Cream Slightly Softened (I use Chapman’s)

Combine all ingredients except ice cream and press half into a pan. Slice the ice cream about 1/2 inch thick into as many slices as you can get out of the carton and lay slices over the mixture. Sprinkle the remaining mixture over the ice cream as topping. Freeze.

Cut into uniform squares, and serve.

    Hi there. Thanks for this! I had a craving for this dessert from my childhood and decided to do a Google search tonight and make it… so pleased to see the recipe on your site! Only comment I would make is the butter should be melted… when my mother made it I believe she added toasted coconut instead of the nuts. Any way you slice it, it is a winner! Thanks.

    I have been looking for this type of recipe. The one my Mom made used butterscotch topping, but there was also chocolate in it. I think she melted chocolate chips with the topping. I am going to try it your way, minus nuts plus chocolate! I’ll let you know! thanks for bringing back pleasant memories of summer days at the cabin.
