Gluten-free Ice Cream Cake Recipe

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

This super simple gluten-free ice cream cake recipe is courtesy Blind Pig and the Acorn. I made a few changes to the original recipe. Be forewarned: this is really sweet.

  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 4 cups crushed rice Chex cereal
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
  • Chocolate syrup


Combine butter, coconut, Chex cereal, sugar, and pecans. Mix thoroughly.


Layer half of the mixture in the bottom of an oblong plastic dish with a lid.


Spread softened ice cream on top of mixture. Ice cream will spread easily if you set it out for 10-15 minutes. You can beat it with a mixer if you’d like. I didn’t.


Top with remaining Chex mixture. Cover and put in freezer until firm.


Drizzle with refrigerated chocolate syrup, if desired, and serve.


I wish you well,
