i've never done it before, but i've read and heard that you should crush the krispies before you make the treats, so it holds better. otherwise, i think you just make the treats by the regular recipe.

good luck!

Just what she said! Plus, crushing them helps to have a smoother appearance once it is molded. When molding the treats, you do want to work somewhat quickly so that it doesn't harden while you are still trying to mold it, but it does stay warm for a while so you should be ok. HTH!

how about letting it dry and firm before carving? would that work too? did somebody tried that technique before?

I have used store bought treats and also have made my own. I heard a tip not to use as much butter as the recipe calls for if you are making them on your own. When I was molding them into shape, I sprayed saran wrap with Pam and wrapped it wround the RKTs so it wouldn't stick and molded them that way. Then I took the saran wrap off. Then I used fondant to cover them and kind of molded that after I got it on there, as well. Good luck!! sorry I don't have anymore info.

I used store bought ones on the weekend for my yummy mummy cake head and fingers. I just squished two bars together and used crisco on my hands so they would not stick. I found it really easy to mold them and with the crisco on my hands i was able to kinda flatten out the bumps. I covered them with a thin layer of fondant to smooth it out then my final fondant. It ended up really smooth. Hope this helps.
