I would like to hear inst.for mixing rice krispie treat for additions to decorating cakes
I used to use the original recipe on the cereal box. Then I started leaving out the butter just so the butter wouldn't make the product rancid if it set for a while. I have finally settled on candy melts and rice cereal. The candy melts set up a little more stable than the marshmallows. In all of these cases, I crushed the cereal up to make the finished texture a little finer/smoother. I don't really have a recipe-I just melt some candy melts and stir in cereal until it's pretty solid.
I use the premade ones and then just sqish them into the shape I need. I use them a lot!
I use (sort of) the traditional box recipe, though I eyeball it. I like it to be a bit heavier on the cereal because I feel it makes for a sturdier, more compact end result. So, I just melt the marshmallows with a pat of butter, then add cereal until it looks about right. Then mold, cover in a thin layer of buttercream, then cover in fondant...ready to go.
I use the standard recipe on the cereal box...going to have to try candy melts!
Add a little vanilla to the recipe if it'll be eaten, yum! The kids love it covered in buttercream... VERY sweet.
I just tried the pre-made for the first time and really liked working with them better than the stickier homemade.
