One of my all time favorite Disney treats are their Rice Krispy treats. I don’t know what the secret is but they are just so good! You can get rice krispy treats in the park in a variety of shapes and sizes. I mean have you ever seen the giant mickey head rice krispy treat? I love how the designs can change from season to season. When we did our Magic Kingdom inspired date night, you can see the details here, I knew these yummy treats just had to be a part of it!
To make these treats you will need :
3 tbs of butter
1 bag of marshmallows ( I prefer to use the mini ones)
6 cups of Rice Krispies
1tsp of vanilla
Mickey Cookie Cutter ( I use this one http://amzn.to/2gXRR0I that is actually a sandwich cutter)
Popsicles sticks (optional)
melting chocolate, sprinkles and M&Ms for decorating (or whatever you choose)
Melt butter and marshmallows in a large pot, once melted add in vanilla and then rice krispies. Stir until the rice krispies are fully coated. Because I used a cookie cutter for shapes I spread these onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper. You will need these to be a bit thicker so they hold the cut shape. You will want them to be about an inch thick. Once its spread out let it set for about 5-10 min so you can cut it into shapes. I did this just like I was cutting cookies. Once cut through and the sides are left roll it back up and smooth it back out. The sooner you do this after they are made the better. The trick to doing it with these was to spray my spatula with cooking spray to keep it from sticking. Transfer all cut out pieces to fresh pieces of wax paper for decorating. I didn’t want to waste the extra which is why I rolled it back out.
If you’re using popsicles sticks you will want to add those in after you have your pieces cut. Melt your chocolates according to the directions. The easiest way is the microwave. To make my favorite M&M’s one just like at Disney I used milk chocolate and M&M’s. Pour melted chocolate onto a flat plate (or melt a pretty deep bowl) and dip the front of the rice krispy treat right in. Have another plate full of M&M’s to dip it in after the chocolate. Then take a spoon and drizzle chocolate over the top of that and set on wax paper to dry. I also melted some white chocolate and did the same thing as well as added Sprinkles on some. You could seriously add anything!
In Disney Springs you can visit Goofy’s Candy Kitchen and create a rice krispy treat with the toppings you want, just like you can at home. Do you love Disney Rice Kripsy Treats? What is your favorite Disney treat?
