Question Why is my rice crispy chewy?

I am trying to figure why my rice crispy is not crispy at all but chewy and sticky? The rice even tastes like undercooked. I did not measure anything but eyeballed it. Even when I followed the instruction and measured everything before, it was not crispy either.

Thanks

Do you mean Rice Crispy Treats that we make with Rice Crispies cereal? It sounds like your using regular rice. Which I have never heard of anyone doing before.

I like it not crispy, kind of gooey. Did you press it into the pan?

No I did not press it. I did it only for the very first time, but it was kind of hard. Then, I stopped pressing it

If I press it into the pan, it compacts it and I find that it is a bit crispier due to lack of air space for the "goo" to interact with. (if that makes any sense)

Also keeping it in the fridge makes it crisper.
