Why do our rice crispie cakes always go soggy?!

I can cook other things, honest, but ds wants to melt some chocolate and mix in sultanas and rice crispies to make "cakes". We've tried, and they go soggy. What can we be doing wrong?!

Try adding some butter when melting the chocolate and then store them in an airtight container in the fridge smile

It's the moisture in the sultanas. try using dark chocolate too.

Why don't you mix the rice crispies and chocolate together and sprinkle the sultanas over the top?

You're not eating them quick enough. wink

Sorry, that wasn't helpful, but we do what you do, and I've never had that problem.

Sounds like you're missing out the golden syrup to stick them together.

Maybe you are using too much chocolate to rice crispies. You really only want enough to coat the rice crispies - you just have to be patient and stir it really well. That's why they're good for child labour... mwahahahaha

Thank goodness someone else suffers this problem. I just googled how to make crispy cakes that don't go soggy and this came up. Not sure any of you have solved my problem though as I don't use raisins and they go soggy.
I too can make allsorts of other cakes.

Agree with above about chocolate to crispie ratio. Too much chocolate and they go soggy. I just use melted chocolate (no other ingredients) and keep adding rice crispies until they still stick - don't make the cakes too big - fairy cake/bun cases - not muffin case sized are best. Cool them quickly.

Dont bother with chocolate, butter and golden syrup just melt mars bars instead. Sprinkle icing sugar in the base before pouring the mixture into the tin/cases to help it not stick.

Golden syrup and cocoa for us, no idea about quantities, I just heat the syrup, stir in cocoa till the mix is nice and dark, stir in as many rice krispies as you can, keep adding more till they are just holding together in clumps.

Our fail-proof recipe: a tablespoon each of butter, cocoa, golden syrup and sugar. Melt together. Stir in rice krispies until they are only just covered - this amount take LOTS. Divvy up into cases. Multiply up as necessary,

We do non chocolate rice crispie cakes - equal amounts of toffee, butter and marshmallows. Melt in pan, add same quantity of rice crispies. For a large tray we use 200g of each wink
