  • ½ cup butter, cubed
  • 4 cups crushed Captain Crunch original
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Whipped Cream
  • 1 half-gallon vanilla ice cream
  • Whipped topping
  • Dulce de leche


  • Lightly spray a 9X9-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place 4 cups of Captain Crunch Original in a plastic bag and crush using a rolling pin.
  • In a skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat, add Captain Crunch, stirring frequently until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes. Once you remove the pan from heat, stir in a cup of sugar, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Stir to coat Captain Crunch evenly and allow to cool.
  • Once the Captain Crunch has cooled, gently press half of the toasted ones into the bottom of the prepared pan. Place in freezer to firm for 20 minutes.
  • While Captain Crunch crust chills, remove ice cream from the freezer to soften at room temperature. After 20 minutes remove the pan from the freezer, and with a spatula evenly spread softened ice cream over toasted Captain Crunch crust.
  • Gently press the remaining toasted Captain Crunch over the top of the ice cream, pressing gently with your fingers. Cover with plastic wrap, return to freezer for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • When ready to serve, warm the dulce de leche in the microwave for 30 seconds. Cut Fried Ice Cream into squares, top with whipped topping, and drizzle with dulce de leche.

  • 2-3/4 cups crushed Cap’n Crunch Berries cereal
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups mixed fresh or frozen unsweetened berries, thawed
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 envelope of unflavoured gelatine
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Sweetened whipped cream, optional
  • Additional mixed fresh berries, optional


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Combine crushed cereal and melted butter. Press this mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-inch deep-dish pie plate using the bottom of a glass. Bake until set, approximately 10-12 minutes. Allow the crust to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • In a bowl, mix together the berries, 1/2 cup of sugar, lemon juice, and zest. Let this mixture sit for 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle gelatine over cold water and let it stand for 5 minutes. Then, microwave the gelatine on high until melted, about 10 seconds. Stir it into the berry mixture.
  • In another bowl, beat cream cheese with the remaining sugar until it’s smooth. Gradually beat in the cream and the berry-gelatine mixture.
  • Transfer the filling into the prepared crust and refrigerate it, covered, until it sets, which should take around 2 hours. If desired, top the pie with sweetened whipped cream and additional berries for an extra burst of flavour.
