Rice Krispy Treats. Your secrets.

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I am going to attempt the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in a week. I will be using RKTs to construct the head, hand and foot. Any suggestions on how to set the RKT's up so they can be sculpted easier? (Ex. Put in a round mold, use a 9x13 pan and stack, Mold while setting up?)

I tried and failed with a Elmo cake I did. The RKTs didn't hold up. I think I needed more marshmallows. Just don't want a rerun of Elmo.

Thanks for your help.

I used equal parts crispy rice cereal and marshmallows. I would recommend practicing ahead of time. The consistency was fine, but it was very hard to get my exact shape. I like the idea of mashing them. I will try that next time.

To mold them, I spray plastic wrap with nonstick cooking spray and put the warm RKT into the plastic, wrap plastic around it, and mold away. It works beautifully. I followed the recipe on the marshmallow bag and it worked well for me.

I have used homemade using the recipe on the box and premade. For me, the premade was much easier to mold and work with as far as the rkt keeping its shape.

I use the recipe on the box. I allow them to cool (in the pot) just enough so I'm not burning my hands when handling. I coat my hands in butter first, so the RKT don't stick to me.

Great question! I watch Cake Boss and they are always using RKT, and now my brain is thinking of using it for a mountain cake.

Am I correct that RKT are lighter than cake? It's been years since I've had RKT and I remember them being very light! My mountain cake will be huge for effect but I only need to feed 30 people! So I was thinking of RKT.

THANK YOU!

For me I find that crushing the RC's works best. I then put them in a SS bowl or pan, what ever shape you need, cover them in plastic wrap and foil. then I use a cake round or sq. board, and stand on them to make sure they are packed as firm as possible. I then put them in the fridg for a day or two to get them as hard as possible before I carve them. Hope this helps.

When I use them, I crush the crispies up before mixing in the with the marshmallow. I also don't use any butter in the recipe. After you get your basic shape and them set up, you can then use a knife to carve them a little bit. This is what works for me. HIH

Do they sell the premade RKT bigger that the little snack size bars? For my sons birthday I am going to make a Piranah Plant from Super Mario Brothers. The bottom green pipe would be 3 or 4 - 8" rounds and the red and white piranah would be RKT molded in the sports ball pan. My fear is that is alot or RKT just suspended in air/not sitting on something to keep it firm? What is the best way to do this with out the Piranah slowly drooping or falling off.
