How to make sure your rice crispy cakes stick together

If your chocolate rice crispy cakes aren’t sticking together, you may be using too much chocolate in your mixture, or not allowing them enough time to cool. Try using a little less chocolate and see if this helps, as well as leaving them in the fridge to completely cool.

How to make firm rice crispy cakes
