Melt butter and brown sugar together in saucepan. Add additional ingredients (except ice cream) and mix well. Layer 1/2 of mixture in bottom of greased 9 inch cake pan or 8x8 baking dish. Sprinkle the rest of cereal mixture over ice cream and press firmly. Freeze for several hours or until firm. Serve with chocolate and caramel.
