We wanted to share a fun recipe for everyday Mickey Mouse and Disney fans, but also a fun treat for a themed party, or even as a cute, creative and easy way to announce a trip to Disneyland or Disneyworld to your family and kids!
It’s really just too easy! Plus, there is a trick to get those deep reds and the black colors – you know, the essential colors to get a true Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treat!
I also like these treats because Rice Krispies are the classic and they are gluten-free!
We might all know how to make Rice Krispie treats, but here’s how to get the Mickey Mouse shape and color:
Rice Krispies Treat Ingredients:
- 3 TBSP butter
- 1 pack (10 oz) Marshmallows
- 6 C Rice Krispies cereal
- Red & black gel food coloring
- Baking spray
- Mickey Mouse Shaped Cookie Cutter
Mickey Mouse Shaped Rice Krispies Treat Directions:
- Melt butter in a large pot over low heat. Dump in the marshmallows, stirring until melted. Remove from heat.
- Stir in the cereal. Coat a spatula with butter and stir the Rice Krispies until they are well coated.
- Divide the mixture evenly into two bowls.
- In bowl #1 add several drops of red gel food coloring. Mix well with your hands. (Coat your hands with shortening or butter to prevent burning).
- In bowl #2 add several drops of black gel food coloring. Mix well with your hands.
- Spray the cookie sheet with the cooking spray.
- Starting with the red treat mixture, using a buttered spatula press the mixture onto the cookie sheet.
- Using the buttered spatula press the original treat mixture the into the cookie sheet.
- Ending with the black treat mixture press this into the cookie sheet.
- Using the Mickey Mouse Head cookie cutter begin cutting out Mickey one color at a time.
- Place the Rice Krispie Mickey Mouse on a clean cookie sheet or stack the three colored heads on top of each other.
Now that we have shared the basics – you could also consider dipping half of your Mickey Mouse Treat in Chocolate to replicate the in-park Gluten-Free Mickey Mouse Treat! Add the sprinkles and sucker stick (from the list below) and you have made your own version!
BTW – these treats are a great option for sharing, for GF visitors (except note the allergy warning: made around wheat, so not good for celiac disease) and as an affordable, under $5 treat! This one was purchased in the Pacific Wharf Cafe’ at Disneyland’s California Adventure. Note that they also have the Mickey Crispy for $3.99 (plain like the white ones in our recipe). But not only that, they have official GF treats and here’s the dessert menu at that Pacific Wharf Cafe’:
Tools used or suggested for this recipe: Add sprinkles on a chocolate dipped one or one of the above shapes (while the marshmallows are warm). Add bows for Minnie Mouse, and a Popscicle Stick for a Mickey Pop (like the one shown above from the park!)
