Number of Servings: 8


    4 cups cornflakes crushed to yield 1-1/2 cups*
    2 teaspoon ground cinnamon*
    4 tablespoon honey
    1.75 quart Low Fat Vanilla Ice Cream, slightly softened

    *May substitute Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips for cornflakes and cinnamon


Line inside of 8-by-4-inch loaf pan with aluminum foil or plastic wrap; crisscross. Leave an overhang on sides to be able to cover top when done. If using plastic wrap, sprinkle water inside pan first to enable plastic to stick.

In a small bowl combine crushed cornflakes and cinnamon. Sprinkle half the cornflake mixture in bottom of pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of honey; easiest to squeeze honey evenly over mixture right from jar, just eyeball 2 tablespoons.

Carefully top the cornflake mixture and honey with half of the softened ice cream. Spread gently and flatten, being careful not to disturb the bottom layer. Repeat with remaining cornflake mixture, honey and ice cream.

Fold overhang over ice cream and freeze until firm, 6 hours or up to 4 days. To serve, unfold overhang, invert pan onto plate and peel off foil or plastic. Top with more crushed cornflakes if desired. Slice and serve immediately.
