Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 cups COCOA KRISPIES® cereal (cocoa crispy rice cereal)
  • 2 rolls red fruit leather
  • 2 rolls green fruit leather
  • 12 cup dried pineapple
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 12 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 10 ounces marshmallows
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream or 2 cups yogurt
  • 1 cup butterscotch topping or 1 cup caramel topping


  1. Coat a bread pan 5 by 9 inches with cooking spray and set it aside.
  2. In a food processor, briefly pulse 6 cups of cocoa-flavored crisp rice cereal.
  3. Tear or cut 2 rolls each of red and green fruit leather into small pieces.
  4. Chop 1/2 cup of dried pineapple into small chunks.
  5. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan over low heat.
  6. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and stir until mixed.
  7. Add a 10-ounce package of regular-size marshmallows and stir until they're completely melted.
  8. Add the cereal, fruit leather, and pineapple pieces to the marshmallow mixture.
  9. Stir quickly with a rubber spatula coated with cooking spray until well mixed.

  12. Let the loaf cool (about 30 minutes), then remove it from the pan, slice with a serrated knife, and set a serving of 2 slices on each plate.
  13. Next to that scoop about a 1/2 cup of ice cream in a mound to look like mashed potatoes.
  14. Top it all with a drizzle of caramel sauce for gravy.
