Iâm going to make a Max and Ruby cake soon and need some advice. I want to make them from rice crispy treats. I made Elmo last year and he had been drying for over a week and he looked great but as soon as we frosted him he began to soften and we had a heck of a time keeping his arms in place.. anyway my question is. . . Is their a trick to the recipe maybe some corn syrup or I read here at CC that someone used a sugar coating to help smooth the figure out. HELP

I only did the krispie treats modeling one time, a witch, she kept getting shorter...lol. I dunked the krispie witch in melted chocolate, that helped in keeping her in a standing position.
I did read on the Rice Krispie web site, for making a house out of the treats, that they baked the walls after they were cut from the orginal recipe.
Here is a link to the site about baking the treats.

Hope you get more suggestions to help with your problem.

Some other members suggested cutting out some of the butter in the recipe and crushing the treats. I omitted the butter completely and semi-crushed and I have had not problems at all now!

and you can heat the melted marshmallows a bit longer, to a higher temperature and that also makes them firmer- not so chewy
