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!

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.
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!
You can eat these scraps but I squished them all together in one of the corners to press out an additional treat.
5 more treats!
This method made 5 Mickey treats from a traditional recipe of marshmallow krispie treats.
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.
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.
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!
Ready to eat!
Great as gifts, for Disney-themed birthday parties, or a fun afternoon snack!
Mickey always puts a smile on your face!
You can’t help but smile when you see these. Enjoy!
