Make Your Own Mickey Krispie Treats

I’m not the best at coming up with fun and creative baking projects, but thankfully I have plenty of friends to help me with that!

Friend and fellow blogger Sarah of How I Pinch A Penny cleverly made Mickey Krispie Treats on a stick for her kids after seeing them at the recent Disney Social Media Moms on The Road in Washington, D.C. All kids love Rice Krispies, and I thought it was a great idea as a snack for a playdate or to reward your little one. Either way, everyone big and small will love them!

Here are step-by-step instructions from Sarah so that you can make them too!

  • Step 1

    Step 1

    Make a recipe of marshmallow krispie treats, spray a 8″ pan with non stick spray, and press into the pan. Pro tip: Spray the top of the treat AND your hand with non stick spray to avoid a crazy, sticky mess!

    While the treats are still warm, press the Mickey-shaped cutter into the treats. This is actually a sandwich cutter that I bought in the Main Street USA Bakery when my family visited the park in 2012. I love it because it is a high-walled cutter AND it has the thick plastic around the top edge to protect my hand when I am pressing a sandwich, or in this case, a Mickey treat.

  • Step 3

    Step 3

    Push a stick into the Mickey treat from the bottom up towards the top of the head. I would make sure the stick goes in straight and in as far as possible. This will be a heavy treat to have on a stick and it needs all the support it can get!

  • Scraps


    You can eat these scraps but I squished them all together in one of the corners to press out an additional treat.

    This method made 5 Mickey treats from a traditional recipe of marshmallow krispie treats.

  • Step 4

    Step 4

    Melt chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave or over a double boiler. I added 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to make the chocolate more fluid and ‘dunkable’. I did ‘cheat’ a little and used a butter knife to spread chocolate to form his Mouse ears ‘hat’. Place on a silpat, non stick mat, or parchment paper so the chocolate can set.

  • Step 5

    Step 5

    While the chocolate is still wet, add decorations. I found these little colored chocolate pieces put out by Wilton at A.C Moore. Use whatever you like or fits your theme! Pop in the refrigerator till the chocolate is set.

  • Step 6

    Step 6

    Place your Mickey treat in a cellophane bag. These bags are 9″ x 4″. I tucked the end behind the Mickey head and held it in place with a sticker. A piece of tape would work as well. Or skip this step entirely! I think it gives the front a more finished look. Tie the bottom with a length of curling ribbon and you are set to go!
