I just wanted to ask if everyone else gets really messy when making RKT or did i do something wrong. I have just made it for the 1st time and there is marshmellow all over the microwave and proberly just about everywhere else. It also ended up all stuck to my hands and i couldn't shake it loose. The only thing good to come out of it was it amused my 4 year old. He was laughing and clapping like i was the entertainment. Lol. Any advice on how to do it a less messy way. Good job my husband is at work he would have flipped if he saw the mess i have made.
I put my marshmallows with 2 tablespoons of water (takes place of the margarine or butter) and melt for 1 minute on high then stir and dump in my 6 cups (i think) of cereal and stir. I try to crush up my RK a little before I stir it into the marshmallows so the texture isnt so bumpy.
Does anyone else use butter in their RK's?
Marshmallows can be really messy! I always put a lot of Crisco on my hands/arms (almost up to my elbows) and everywhere else - in the bowl, on the spoon I mix them with etc. and that helps a lot! It does not stick, or should I say it does not stick as much... HTH.
I tried making rkt eggs and carrots yesterday and found that wearing food safe gloves and slathering them in butter made for less mess...
My mistake was not crushing the rice krispies and then thinking I could cover them in candy melts, which subsequently melted the rkt carrots so they ended up looking like bumpy piles of orange... The eggs worked a bit better but are very bumpy. We all learn from our mistakes right?
I didn't crush mine either so i dread to think what they will turn out like.
