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?
I just looked it up and that's the same thing 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.
Or make it yourself using Rice Bubbles
yeh i think LCM's are the same so you could buy them. Could also make it yourself if you want
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.
Thanks so much everyone!! I really appreciate the responses.
Pam thank you for the recipe - ill definately be trying it out
