I MUST figure this out! Too Cool! - Page 2

post #16 of 20
Not sure if this will help. The carlabuchanan recipe is from the Rice Krispie web site. I have seen a recipe from another Kellogg's site that has caramels melted in with the marshmallows this might help with you color (although may need to add extra color) and 'sticking' problem.

You may have to look around a bit, but some stores carry colored marshmallows - yellow, orange, green and pink - they're fruit flavored. The yellow may give you the color you want. Maybe mix some yellow with white to tone down the brightness of the white.

I bought store-brand rice crispies last week to use in cheese krispies. I was shocked when I opened the box and saw how white they were - told my hubby that if I had been planning RCTs, I would have to toast the cereal first just to make them look right. So maybe it would help to bake the cereal till it gets a bit browner?

Thanks all for the wonderful help! The show was Sunday and I asked the question a little late but I did manage to figure something out. I didnt have time to order the sheets of RKT from food service and I just wasnt liking the look of any of the homemade recipes I tried (although I have sense saved the website posted, thank you). I already had the styrofoam dummy so i knew i just needed to get something to cover the outer part. I found that the pre-packaged RKT from Kellogs were a good look but they were not soft enough to smash together without having huge seams where the treats met. I happened upon large boxes of Little Debbie RKT at walmart and thought i would take a chance. They are a little more yellow in color, but once on the "cake" they looked wonderful. I am extremely happy with the final outcome and to do the dummy, I didnt even need 3 of the boxes of treats for a total cost of around $10. Now when someone orders this I can do the homemade treats on the inside to form into blocks and cover with these treats. The final outcome is in my photos. Thanks again all!!!
