This just didn't turn out the way I expected. I used 4 oversized glass cereal bowls and coated the insides with butter-flavored non-stick spray. The mixture with the corn flakes was pretty difficult to work with- at first I thought I had way too much, but it required an awful lot of it to get the bottom of the bowls built up enough to hold the shape and be leak-proof (so the ice cream would not drip through)- for two of them I resorted to mashing and crunching the corn flakes down into a compact layer- which was still really really thick. I think the texture and shape of the cornflakes made it so difficult. The bowls didn't set up properly after 6 hours of cooling time- they held their shape when inverted and carefully turned right side up, but the first time a spoon touched the sides or bottom the entire bowl broke apart, creating quite a mess with half-eaten and softened ice cream. The taste of the mixture was great- we ended up crumbling bowls over the top of our ice cream that night. Since we still had 3 bowls left over (1 bowl was more than sufficient for topping 2 servings of ice cream...as written each crunch bowl is 1 1/4 cups of cereal and 3/4 cup marshmallows!), we layered the crumbled mixture and scoops of ice cream in a 9x13 glass cassarole, topping it with mini chocolate chips and drizzling it with caramel topping, and freezing it. And let me tell you, THAT was good! Made a great presentation and had wonderful crunch layers all the way through. Whatever the reason, the bowls didn't work for us---but I am keeping this recipe to use it in the cassarole dish again. Thanks for posting!
