Yes, they are knobbly. When I do them I usually cover them with a layer of frosting to fill in the pits, then cover with fondant. I know some will use melted chocolate or candy melts to the same purpose.

When I did my big golf ball I used 2 layers of fondant. The first I used to fill in the pits and get a smooth surface, then I covered in the final layer that would show. Worked great.

I use the ready to use ones. By the time I get them shaped into something, the RKT are fairly smooth as they have compressed. I find the store-bought RKTs more solid and of course, extremely convenient.

I've read on this site that many RKT users will crush up the rice krispies and then add the butter/marshmallow - Good Luck!
