Sharing is caring!

Have you seen the Mickey Mouse-shaped Rice Krispie treats at Walt Disney World? They are huge and are an iconic snack to get while at the park. These delightful treats combine the familiar crunch of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal with gooey marshmallows and a touch of sweetness. I enjoy making a homemade version at home. In this blog post, I’ll share a copycat recipe that allows you to recreate the magic at home. Get ready to embark on a culinary adventure and create your very own Disney-inspired Rice Krispie Treats!

Disney Rice Krispie Treats Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
  • 6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
  • Chocolate Candy Melts
  • Sprinkles

You will also need a Mickey Mouse-shaped cookie or sandwich cutter.

How to Make CopyCat Disney Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats

Step 1 – Melting the Marshmallows. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the miniature marshmallows and stir continuously until they are completely melted. Once melted, remove the saucepan from the heat.

Step 2 – Coating with Krispies. Add the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal to the melted marshmallows in the saucepan. Gently stir until the cereal is well coated with the marshmallow mixture.

Step 3 – Pressing for Perfect Pan Perfection. To prevent sticking, either butter a spatula or use wax paper. Press the Rice Krispie mixture evenly into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Allow the mixture to cool and set.

Step 4 – Shape it like Mickey Mouse. Once the Rice Krispie Treats have cooled, it’s time to transform them into the iconic Mickey Mouse shape. Use a greased Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter to cut out shapes from the Rice Krispie block. Gently press the cookie cutter into the treat and carefully remove the excess.

Step 5 – Melt the Chocolate. Now, let’s add a touch of chocolatey magic to these treats! To melt the chocolate candy melts, start by placing them in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval. Continue microwaving and stirring until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate to prevent it from seizing.

Step 6 – Dipping and Decorating. Take the Mickey Rice Krispie Treats and dip the top side into the melted chocolate. Ensure that the top surface is evenly coated. Gently shake off any excess chocolate.

Place the chocolate-coated treats on a pan lined with wax paper or parchment paper. This will prevent sticking and make it easier to remove them later. Sprinkle your desired assortment of colorful sprinkles onto the chocolate-coated surface of each treat. Let the chocolate set completely before serving or storing.

Tips for Getting The Perfect Rice Krispie Treat

  • Have all your ingredients measured out and ready. Some of the steps need to be done quickly.
  • For best results, use fresh marshmallows.
  • 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow crème can be substituted for marshmallows.
  • Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended because of the water content compared to butter.
  • I discovered that spraying the cookie cutters really helps with the treats not sticking to the cutter. Make sure to also spray the pan where you spread the Krispie mixture to cut your Mickeys from.
  • If you don’t have a microwave, you can melt the chocolate candy melts using a double boiler. Fill a pot with a small amount of water and bring it to a simmer. Place a heatproof bowl over the pot, ensuring that the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Add the chocolate candy melts to the bowl and stir until melted.

Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats Storage Tips

Disney Rice Krispie Treats are best enjoyed fresh, but if you have leftovers or want to make them ahead of time, proper storage is essential to maintain their texture and flavor. Here’s how to store them:

  1. Place the fully set and decorated Rice Krispie Treats in an airtight container or wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Ensure they are not stacked on top of each other to prevent smudging the decorations.
  2. Store the treats at room temperature in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and humidity. They should last for up to 3-4 days.
  3. If you want to extend their shelf life, you can refrigerate them for up to a week. However, keep in mind that refrigeration may affect the texture slightly.
