Help me rescue my rice bubble (rice krispies) slice!

I decided to dress this slice up by adding 125 g chopped white chocolate and 75 g dried cherries (and I used the 5 cups of rice bubbles). Unfortunately that messed with she structural integrity too much and now I have a slice that only barely holds itself together and crumbles under pressure.

How should I fix it?

I have vegetable shortening, if that would help.

Thanks in advance!

  1. You need something more to bind it together. The sugar concoction is not as gluey as typical marshmallow squares. And your chocolate may have melted too

    More melted chocolate could work, you just have to wait for it to solidify.

      I think more chocolate, and then chilling, will fix this.

    2. Cook's Country has a great recipe using these ingredients.

      1. Have you tried chilling it which would firm up the chocolate? Interesting that they're called rice bubbles in NZ.

        1. Will the mixture hold together as small balls of rice bubble snack instead of a slice? Can you add more rice bubble to the entire mixture and give the finished mix more integrity?

          Otherwise, I'd use it as a crumble snack.

            Thanks all for your replies.

            I did try binding it with more sugar butter but it didn't work so I ended up following the suggestion to turn it in to a crumble snack or ice cream topping.
