1. LINE the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch pan with parchment paper.
2. HEAT 4 cups of the marshmallows, the butter and salt in a 3-quart saucepan over low heat. Stir constantly for about 8 minutes, until melted.
3. STIR in cereal until almost coated; stir in the remaining cup of marshmallows. Using a greased rubber spatula, evenly scrape mixture into pan and spread evenly. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
4. TURN pan upside down to remove cereal layer; discard parchment paper. Cut into 12 rectangles, 4 x 3 inches each. Working quickly, spread 1/2 cup of the ice cream onto 1 rectangle; top with another rectangle. Repeat to use up rectangles and ice cream. Freeze on parchment paper-lined cookie sheet at least 1 1/2 hours until firm.
5. WRAP sandwiches individually in plastic wrap and store in freezer.
