What causes an icing to "crust" is the fats to shortning ratio. What is the recipe you are using? I use sugarshack's or indydebi's and both of them are GREAT. They both crust nicely, taste wonderful and are stable in the heat and humidity of the summer weather.

Why don't you just buy the pre-made rice krispie treats? That's what I always use. I get them at Sam's or walmart in the big boxes and they work wasted left overs and no clean upicon_smile.gif
