I have seen in Food Network the use of Rice Krispies with chocolate to mold figurines. Has anyone tried this method? I have seen on the forum the use of RK and Marshmellows (which makes perfect sense because of the stickiness in the marshmellow) but, just wanted to see what else is out there!

Thanks,

I did it using marshmallows that I melted in microwave and crushed Rice Krispies. No butter. I used it to make the branch piece in my recent cake.

Hmm... I've seen in a cake contest pouring white chocolate OVER RKTs, but not mixed in with them.

I just crush my PKs, add a little more RKs than the recipe calls for, omit the butter, and put the finished product in the freezer to harden. I don't find that I have to coat them with anything before applying my fondant.

I did what Macsmom did and it worked great. I didn't measure out the rk just used some and added a little more until I got the right consistency....so it wouldn't fall apart. I also wet my hands with water so they wouldn't stick to it and that worked well. I did my sheep cake and my pregnant lady with this method and covered them in gum paste.

Same here just mm and rk. When you melt your mm start adding to rk (crushed or not) depends on you and you want it to be firm not to wobbly so you kinda have to determine the texture in your rk, but don't add butter, then you can just lay your fondany over it.

Is the butter omited just so the fondant will stick, or is it a stability factor? I want to use RK's, but I'm going to frost it with buttercream. I want it to keep it's shape, but I want the kids to be able to eat it too.

i've covered my rct figure in chocolate to smooth a little bit put in the freezer and found that when i attached the mmf to it that the condensation the choc gives off from warming up to room temp makes the mmf stick to it good.

Hi all.. could i ask when you melt the mm in the microwave, at what level do you microwave it and for how long? In addition, do you add the RK to the mm or the mm to the RK? Thanks! icon_smile.gif

It's a stability factor, especially in the summer months.

I melt my MMs for about 1 minute full power, then add the RKs.

Chocolate would be fine to use, too!

What about using Marshmallow creme? Would that work as well?

I have made rice krispie treats according to the recipe (sometimes just adding a bit more rk) and covered it in fondant - but just let it harden. It looked and tasted great. Often when I am just needing a little bit for one figure or so I will just use the store bought stuff - that works well too!

...just make sure you pack it as hard as you can.
