I just moved to Western NY and am having a terrible time with my RKT's can't get them to set. I know this humidity is horrible right now, any suggestions on getting it to harden for sculpting????

I live in east texas and the humidity is a nightmare when mine won't set, I add about 1 cup more rice krispies per batch it dosen't effect the taste but it sure helps with the setting process. HTH

I to do the same thing. I add a cup extra of rice krispies. Always works for me.

It was pretty humid, hot and rainy in my neck of the woods this weekend and I used RK for MM clubhouse cake .. I had no problems, (granted, the AC was on like 73 degrees) I used the original recipe but instead of 3 Tbls of butter I only put 1...I packed them really tight and everything was fine..

I always add more RK's than the recipe that's on the back of the RK box calls for. This definitely helps!
