I use the regular rice krispie treat recipe without the butter. Squeeze it together really firmly, so that it'll hold it's shape. To carve, I find it's best to let it dry for a bit, so that it's hard, then carve (otherwise, it might move around!). It's really easy to mold, stick pieces together, etc. Good luck!

ABest advice I got on that issue was here on CC. Crush your Rice Krispies with a rolling pin before adding to the marshmallows. Makes a much smoother surface when you mold. Love them for modeling!

I also do modeling with RC Treats and I also add a little less marshmallows and add candy melts to the hot mixture as they help the final product dry really hard.  Good Luck.

I gave my cereal a quick run through the Cuisinart (leave cereal somewhat coarse but smaller pieces) and then decreased the marshmallows and butter by about 1/4. Then I did what perfectcakesbyshirley said. It worked great for a tombstone and a hand that I made back in October.

AHi, I'm making a pirate chest cake and need a rice krispie recipe to make the lid air ned to use something thats not heavy. It has to be solid and hold together and be able to be carved I am covering it in fondant too. The lid will be 10 x 8 inches and about 2.5 inch deep anyone any idea on quantities? Thanks in advance.

AI know this is not the question you asked but I recently made treasure chest cake and after lots of deliberation about Rice Krispies, I decided to use polystyrene for the lid. It made it very easy and I think worked quite well. All I did was cut a couple of 6" round cake separators in half and glued three of the halves together, then covered in fondant. Just a suggestion, if you are looking at alternatives. http://cakecentral.com/g/i/2870791/a/3273907/pirate-girl/

Lilly, i work with rkt a good bit and i'd have to guess you might need up to 3 full recipes. that's pretty fair size to carve a great curve, I don't know that I wouldn't use Oboeplayers suggestion. My best tip?: pack them hard and tight into the pan when you make them. push and push until you just don't think you can compact them anymore. and let them dry overnight if you can.

good luck! if you use rkt i can't wait to see it. You can do almost anything with rkt if you persist.
