Recipe by JDLucas2000
A co-worker brought this in for myself and my wife to try. I was apprehensive at first (I don't usually like pies) but was completely won over on my first bite! I came home from work and started searching RZ for the recipe. To my surprise, no one had sent it in. I ended up finding similar ones on the site, but none that used the Rice Krispies as the crust. Personally, I think this made the pie better (and was why I loved it). I finally found the recipe on RiceKrispies.com and knew I had to submit it first thing! I have left the directions alone but substituted the brand names of the products my co-workers used (since I KNOW how AMAZING this is). I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!

Wow! This is a great easy dessert. I did use chunked pineapple just mixed them in with the sugar. I was skeptical about the rice crispies crust but it was still good, just something different. Thanks for an easy yummy recipe!
