Peach Ice Dream Bars

Peach Ice Dream Bars

As one last farewell to summer, slave comes up with this do it yourself recipe for ice cream bars! Slave will not have to ask you what you would do for one, will he? In fact these are very low fat. It uses low-fat whipped topping with chopped up peaches for a filling. A layer of peanut flavored crisps and a coating of dark chocolate. Why its positively healthy, or at least medicinal for what ails you.

Come on, you know you want to try this. Along the way you will learn how to home make a “magic shell” chocolate topping! If you find putting all of the parts together to confusing, you can make the peach topping mix, freeze it and serve scopes covered with the chocolate shell topping and have a Crispy crunch cookie to serve along with it. See, slave is always thinking of you.


1 15oz can sliced “Freestone” peaches in extra light syrup
1 12oz container of low fat frozen whipped topping

3 cups of a Crispy Rice cereal
½ cup smooth low fat peanut butter
½ cup corn syrup

Shell coating:
2 cups (12oz.) of dark chocolate chips
½ cup of Coconut Oil (measured when solid) you can use the cheaper butter for this but coconut oil just works better. If using butter keep the portion about the same - 4 parts chips to 1 part butter

Wash out a pan for mini meat loafs and dry it well then spray with cooking spray lightly.

Drain the can of Freestone peaches and cut them up into small pieces. Using a large bowl, fold the pieces into the thawed topping and spoon in the molds. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 4 hours or better overnight.

Next day:
To make the crispy layer: measure out 3 cups of cereal into a large bowl. Spray a ½ cup measure then fill it with smooth peanut butter. Slide that into a medium bowl. Spray the measure again and fill with corn syrup. Add to bowl.
NOTE: anytime you have to measure something thick and sticky, lubricate it first!. It comes out so much easier. ALSO: Anytime you use a syrup, have a damp paper towel handy to wipe the top and the top of bottle. That way the next time opening will be much easier.

Slave finds if you microwave this for less than 30 seconds it will mix well. You do NOT want it to be hot, just a liquid so that it can pour into the large bowl of cereal. 

 Mix that well. Take out the pan of frozen topping and remove the plastic.

Keep you hands wet as you spoon out the crispy mixture on each of the bars. Damp hands will let you pat this out evenly. Re-cover with new plastic wrap. If you like take a rolling pin and smooth out this layer. It will be the bottom of the bar. Refreeze for about an hour. You just want to keep it frozen while you get the last step ready.

Magic shell topping:
Use a microwave-safe bowl or container and add the chips along with the coconut oil.
Take the frozen pan out of the freezer, and un-mold the bars.
If they don't want to come, dampen a small towel and microwave it for 30 seconds. Lay the towel on the counter and sit the pan on that.

Roll out wax paper to cover the counter, then cut squares of foil that are big enough to hold each bar with about 2 inches on all sides. Place a bar on each and pull up the edges so that you don't get chocolate all over the place. Oh you will but this does help!

 Melt the chocolate & coconut oil in the microwave, using 30 seconds at a time and stir between each “zapping” until it is melted and smooth.
Spoon the chocolate over the bars covering them as much as possible.
The topping will harden in about 30 to 40 seconds. You will be able to tell because it stops being glossy. If it hardens too soon, just scrape up any left over and put back into the bowl then zap again. You want each bar to be well covered so that they can be held. Then slide each back into the freezer. Now after they are really hard again. Wrap each like a Christmas present with wax paper and then with foil.

Keep in freezer until ready to serve, just like the brand named bar. Except these will be home made and taste much better!

This homemade chocolate topping works great on ice cream or even for coating strawberries or other fruit.

Slave is happy to present this last of summer treat for you.
