Our Disney trip countdown is getting low in numbers and we’re gearing up for a fun trip to Walt Disney World for the Disney Social Media Moms conference! One of the many fun things about a trip to Disney is all the fun food and tasty treats! One of our favorites are Mickey rice krispies treats!! They are super tasty & easy for the kids to eat in the parks! But…they’re also REALLY easy to make at home! In fact, we made a whole batch to take with us on our trip (saves money that way, but is still lots of fun)!
- 1/4 C butter
- 1 bag mini marshmallows (about 6 cups)
- Rice Krispies cereal (about 6 cups)
- chocolate candy bark/candy melts
- large Mickey cookie cutter (*affiliate link)
- Mickey sprinkles (*affiliate link)
- popsicle sticks
You’ll start by making a batch of rice krispies treat – easy peasy! To make them thicker like the ones at Disneyland or Disney World, put one batch in a 9×9 pan (or double the recipe). Spread everything out in the pan to get a nice even layer. Once cool, use the large Mickey cookie cutter to get the Mickey head shape (I could get about 4 from one batch in the 9×9 pan) and insert popsicle sticks into the bottom of the heads (use a little melted chocolate to help stick if needed).
At this point, you could just be done and leave them plain. Disney does sell large ones just plain like this. But, I think the chocolate dipped ones with sprinkles are a bit more fun. Just melt your chocolate candy bark according to package directions. The trick to getting the chocolate ears line nice & straight is to put the chocolate in a baggie (or piping bag) and actually piping the chocolate one. Then fill in & spread around the edges! Top with sprinkles as desired! So easy to make and a fun way to involve kids in the kitchen! These are perfect for making to bring with you on a Disney trip…or they’d be great to make any time you just need some Disney magic at home! So fun!
