Last weekend we hosted a Disney Kids Preschool playdate with some friends and I made Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats for each kid to take home in their goody bags. I’m going to share more about the party in another post but today I’m going to share how to make the Mickey Ears Crispy Treats.
When planning the playdate I immediately had the idea to make these because they were one of my kids’ favorite snacks on our last trip to Disney World. The ones in the park are HUGE but the ones I made for the party are a bit smaller. The size of your ears will depend on the size of your cookie cutter.
Here’s how I made them:
Step 1: Make your usual crispy treats recipe. Give it some time to let them cool completely. Then take a Mickey Mouse ears cookie cutter and cut out Mickey Ears. Place the Mickey Ears Crispy Treats on parchment paper.
Step 2: Press down just a little on the top of each treat and insert a lollipop stick a couple of inches into the treat.
Step 3: Let the treats sit out overnight to allow them to firm up a bit more.
Step 4: Package them up. I took regular old plastic Ziploc baggies and cut off the closure at the top. Then I slipped the treats inside and tied them up with some Baker’s twine. I had originally thought I would use the clear plastic treat bags you see in the baking section at the craft store but when I looked at them it seemed like none of them were going to be wide enough to fit my Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats in.
Serve to a bunch of hungry kids! Or eat them yourself. That’s OK too. And if you want to you could get fancy with these and drizzle some chocolate on them or even add some sprinkles. Have fun with them!
