Everyone loves the different Disney treats that you can get around the parks and I really enjoy baking, so I thought I would make a few attempts at recreating those treats we all love. By sharing the ingredients and steps that I used, I should hope that this would allow you to bring the Disney magic into your home too!
The first treat I’m going to tackle is a personal favourite of mine – Mickey Mouse Rice Krispies! This recipe makes 3 medium sized Krispies (the same size as those you would find in the parks) and a word of warning, it is very messy business.
What you will need:
- Marshmallows (I used about 9 mediums sized ones)
- 1/4 of a box of Rice Krispies
- Heat proof bowl
- Pan filled with water
- Mickey cookie cutter or Knife
- Baking tray or Flat dish with sides
- Toppings! I used Dairy Milk Buttons, Milkybar and M&M’s
Dish out your marshmallows into your heatproof bowl and place them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.* If your marshmallows survived the microwave, place the bowl above the pan filled with water on the stove and stir until they are melted completely.
*make sure your microwave says 20 seconds and not 2 minutes if you don’t want our marshmallows to explode.
Once melted, pour the marshmallow into a mixing bowl with your Rice Krispies and mix until all Rice Krispies are stuck together.
Place the Rice Krispie mixture into your dish or baking tray and flatten it out as much as possible – it can get very messy! Then put it into the fridge for about 10 minutes to hold the mix together enough for it to be moulded later on.
Use your Mickey cutter to cut out your shapes or if you’re like me and don’t own one, carve it out using a knife (please get an adult to do this step unless you want Mickey Rice Krispie + Human Finger treats). If you have some mixture left over, you should be able to mould a Mickey mouse shape with your hands. At this stage if you wanted to insert lollipop stick you can do – it might make it easier when it comes to decorating.
Place your Mickey treats back into the fridge for another 10 minutes whilst you prepare the decoration! If you are using chocolate you will need to melt it using the pan and water on the stove with your heat proof bowl, stirring until completely melted. Take your Krispies out of the fridge and decorate them however you like.
