are you using them to carve?? Or do you just want to make rkt to eat??? If you're carving them, don't add any butter, just add some butter flavored extract that way they will be more sturdy! Also you can crush the cereal some with y our hands and that will help it compact tighter for sculpting. I don't even use a recipe anymore, I just melt some marshmallows, when they're melted I add the extract (butter /vanilla/or both) and then add in cereal and stir and keep adding cereal until it looks like the cereal is coated with marshmallows but they shouldn't appear "white" from the marshmallows it should look like more cereal than marshm. but the cereal should all be coated evenly, then let them cool for a minute or two and then start shaping.

I was hoping to use them to carve i have never done this before so is it best to melt the mallows in the microwave or in a saucepan?

I find doing it in a saucepan is easier. I just used the regular rice krispy recipe and had no problems. My cat in my gallery is made out of rice krispies. I did have to carve the head a bit but it works great.

I do recommend that if you are covering it in fondant to put a coat of buttercream on it. This will help with the smoothness and take the bumps of the rice krispies away.

I just melt in the microwave! But I'm lazy and try not to create any MORE dishes than I have to.
