  • “Okay, I think this recipe had great potential, but I tried it twice and it was not very cooperative.The sauce was great, very nice flavor, but with only 4 cups of rice, it was swimming in the sauce.The first time I made it I used 4 cups + 2 additional cups or rice, not all the way cold, but cooled down.I also only used 1/2 cup of water.I removed about 3/4 c of liquid from this mixture with a spoon in attempt to get them to stick together.The second time, I cooled the rice all the way down in the fridege, used less water and a little more peanut butter and honey.Still not sticking together well.I used probably 1/2 c of peanut butter which is probably not the intended flavor, but it was okay.On the 2nd batch, I used only 1/2 tsp of Cayenne.I used medium grained rice.I tried this twice because I wanted this to work, it was for a party I was having and I ended up not serving them, let my fiance eat them instead.”

  • “I tried to make these hoping they would be just the thing for my toddler who loves rice but they did not stay together with regular rice like a rice ball should.I might try it again with short grain rice.”

  • “I made these for my husband the other night and they were very good. He now wants to know when I am making them again, and says to make them often. I didn’t add water but followed the recipe other than that. It made perfect little rice balls.”
