Unfortunately, I wasn't too happy with the hazelnut rice krispy base. I know I will be working further on this recipe till I find a perfect base. Don't get me wrong. Taste wise is perfect and delicious. However, I found the rice krispy to be a little too chewy and that was surely a workout to my jaw. From memory, I recalled that rice krispy is light, airy and crunchy. On the contrary, I'd say. Perhaps the ones sold from the specialty bakery store are slightly different? So many possibilities, and assumptions. Bottom line, this recipe has a ton of potential and room for improvement. Heck, I may even replace the bottom with genoise instead and start layering other flavours along.
