Easy Mickey Mouse Rice Krispy Treats #DisneySide

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

We held our #DisneySide @Home Celebration party (recap post coming soon!) this past weekend. I thought it would be a great time to make one of my favorite Disney Parks snacks as favors for guests to take home.

I made some Mickey Rice Krispy Treats for my #DisneySide party last year, but they were small. This year, I wanted to make bigger ones, like the ones you see in the Disney Parks. I followed the recipe printed on the back of Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallows, except I used an 8x8 pan to make the Krispy Treats fatter.

3 tbsp butter
1 10.5-oz pkg Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal
Mickey Mouse Confetti Sprinkles
Lollipop sticks

1.  Microwave butter in microwaveable bowl on HIGH for 45 seconds, or until melted.

2.  Add marshmallows and toss to coat.

3.  Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring after 45 seconds.

4.  Add cereal and mix well.

5.  Press mixture into an 8x8 pan sprayed with cooking spray.

I then put the pan in the fridge to let the mixture set up for a bit before I cut into it (maybe about 5-10 minutes).

To make the Mickey Rice Krispy Treats bigger, I used my Mickey Sandwich Cutter instead of a cookie cutter. I had bought it a few years ago at Disney World. I sprayed the cutter with cooking spray to keep it from getting too sticky.

I pressed the sandwich cutter into the mixture, making sure to get it all the way to the bottom of the pan. When I lifted up the cutter, the mixture stayed inside and I transferred the cut shape to a baking sheet covered in wax paper.  I then inserted a lollipop stick and pressed some Mickey sprinkles on top.

I was able to get about 7 Mickey Rice Krispy Treats out of one batch. I made two batches for the party. Since they were so big, I had to use a sandwich bag and a twist tie to wrap them up. Everyone loved them and I think most people ended up eating them during the party.

If you don't have the Mickey Sandwich Cutter, a regular Mickey head shaped cookie cutter will do. Wilton sells a set and they're often sold at craft stores. I did see that Amazon sells the Mickey Mouse Sandwich cutter, though it might be cheaper elsewhere (affiliate link):

You can add your own twist and dip the entire Krispy Treat in chocolate or just the ears. You can drizzle more chocolate on top of that! The possibilities are endless! I kept mine simple, mainly because I didn't have a lot of time. Next time, I'll be sure to make sure I'm not scheduled to work the day before I host a party!
