Rice Chex Blueberry Dessert

We had a get together on Sunday night.  I knew I would be busy all day on Sunday so on Saturday I decided I needed to make a dessert.  I wanted something that would be fresh for Sunday evening so I started to think what was in the house…hmmm….we had a container of Cool Whip in the refrigerator that needed to get used and that’s when Rice Chex Blueberry Dessert popped in my head.  That would be perfect.   It’s a dessert that is best if it’s in the refrigerator a bit before serving.

The dessert is wonderful and is great for summer as it’s light and creamy.

I have made this periodically over the years but not real often.  I was so delighted to find out that the dessert is GLUTEN FREE!!  Kelli is going to be so happy that I realized that.

Here’s the recipe:

1 stick of margarine melted
2 1/2 cups crushed Rice Chex
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
12 oz Cool Whip

Mix the crushed Rice Chex, margarine, brown sugar, coconut.  Mix.  Reserve 1 cup for the topping.  Press the remaining amount into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.  Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and Cool Whip.  Spread cream cheese mixture on the crust.  Top with can of blueberry pie filling.  Sprinkle top with reserved crumbs.  Refrigerate 8 hours.

I have made it and didn’t refrigerate it that long…but the recipe does call for that.

If you are hosting a get together this is a great recipe as this dessert can be made a day or two in advance and served the night of your get together.

I was going to wait to take the picture of the dessert when it was cut but was afraid that there wouldn’t be any left.  It’s that good.

    No recipe comment. Just wondered if you’ve ever heard some one call Ruby “So stinking cute?” My daughter has 2 beagles and I just love them. Sam was a recuse from the side of the road after hunting season and Kaytie was a rescue from some too dumb to know better people. Kaytie goes outside into a fenced in yard and loses her way back to the door. It’s a very small yard! We call her Kaytie-Doodle.
