The Mickey pumpkin is probably one of my favorite things about Halloween. It’s just so darn cute! I have this amazing Mickey coffee mug I got years ago that started my collection and I could drink from it every day until Halloween.
I even made a wreath similar to the one on Main Street for my front door. The Mickey Pumpkin is really about as Halloween as I get in the decor area.
I wanted to create a fun Mickey treat for Halloween and what’s better than Rice Krispy treats. They are easy and can be done so any different ways. So here is what you need:
Mini Reese cups (or Rolos)
Orange food coloring
Green M&M’s (optional)
Sprinkles (if you want to decorate some)
*Cookie Cutter Tip- Disney sells an actual cookie cutter but it’s huge. I recently bought the sandwich cutter and it’s perfect for cookies, sandwiches, and Rice Krispy treats. You can find it here.
Follow the recipe on the box of Rice Krispies. Melt the butter, then add the marshmallows and melt and this is where I add the orange food coloring in. Just add until you get the color you want. Then add you Rice Krispies and stir them in.
Spread the mixture on wax paper. I love these individually portioned sheets. You want to make it at least half an inch thick so they aren’t too flimsy. Let them cool just a bit and then you want to start cutting them before they completely firm up that way you can re roll out the excess to get more.
Melt a small amount of your melting chocolate. Spread the chocolate across the bottom of the Reese and attach in the middle for the pumpkin stem. You can also add a green M&M to be like a leaf. Then you have a cute little Mickey Pumpkin.
We wanted to spread a little extra magic and kindness to some of the neighbor kids so we wrapped some up in these little treat bags and tied with ribbon for a fun little Halloween treat. Happy Halloween!
