Im hoping any Aussie's can help me out.
Ive never used RKT's on a cake but see it used everywhere on a lot of cakes o/s. Would the Kelloggs LCM's be the same kind of thing and do you think they would work?

Thanks icon_smile.gif

I just looked it up and that's the same thing icon_biggrin.gif Usually we make our own from the cereal and marshmallows instead of buying the premade, but the premade ones would work as well, just maybe be a little more expensive.

Making your own would be heaps cheaper ..... and think of all that packaging!! on the LCM's

This is a recipe I got off Jonny Gordens's blog

Rice Crispies Recipe

Ive adjusted the recipe for Aussie measurements, and for the 250g bags of marshmallows available here.

Melt 1-2 tablespoons of butter in a large bowl. Add 250g of marshmallows and toss to coat. Microwave for 45 secs, stir and microwave another 45 secs and stir. Microwave another 10-15 secs if necessary to fully melt the marshmallows.

Add 5 cups of rice bubbles and stir until mixed well. Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before using.

Note: The hotter the marshmallows the harder the rice crispies will be, so if in doubt, its better to microwave a bit longer than necessary.
