Bring a little magic into your home with these Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats. You only need a few ingredients and a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to make this easy Disney copycat recipe.
Why Make Mickey Mouse Treats
Do you know some adults that seem to love Disney more than their kids? I have to admit that I'm one of those people who absolutely loves going to the Parks.
Not everyone can head to the Parks at this time, so I am on a mission to recreate some of my favorite Disney snacks for all of us to enjoy at home.
Making your own Disney treats like a copycat Dole Whip or Mickey gingerbread is a great way to enjoy a little bit of Mickey Mouse fun with your family.
Now I realized that nothing beats eating the real thing in front of the castle at Disney World, but this copycat version of the Mickey shaped rice krispie treats is perfect when you can't visit.
They look and taste just like the ones you can purchase at Main Street Confectionery in Disney World and at Goofy's Candy Company in Disney Springs.
All you need to make this classic Disney parks treat are a few simple ingredients, a Mickey shaped cutter, and 30 minutes.
- Butter - salted or unsalted will work just fine
- Miniature Marshmallows
- Rice Krispies cereal
- White Chocolate Melting Wafers
- Mini M&M's
How to Make Mickey Rice Krispie Treats
Making Disney's Mickey rice krispie treats are actually quite easy. I just used our basic recipe to make one of the easiest Disney snacks at home.
- Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over low-medium heat.
- Add the bag of marshmallows and stir until melted and creamy.
- Pour in the rice krispie cereal and stir until completely coated.
- Spoon the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Use parchment paper to press it down gently, but firmly. Let cool 15-20 minutes.
- Spray a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter with nonstick spray and cut out 6 large treats. Set on parchment to cool completely.
BRUCREW TIP: Roll the scraps into 18 balls or press it into the cookie cutter to make more treats.
How to Decorate Mickey Treats
Adding chocolate and candy to a rice krispie treat is sure to make any Disney fan smile.
- Melt the white chocolate melts according to the package directions.
- Dip the tops of the cooled treats in the melted chocolate.
- Place on parchment paper with the chocolate side facing up. Cover the chocolate with the mini M&M's, press them in, and let set.
- Reheat the remaining chocolate in the bowl for 10-15 seconds. Spoon some of it into a plastic baggie and cut one tip off.
- Drizzle over the tops of the M&M's rice Krispie treats and let set again.
- To make these Mickey treats look just like the ones at the Disney Parks, use a knife to cut a slit in the bottom center of each Mickey treat. Add melted white chocolate to the end of a popsicle stick and insert into the slit. Let set before picking up.
Use fresh marshmallows because old stale marshmallows will result in hard treats.
Let the cereal treats cool for 15-20 minutes. The bottom of the pan will be cool, but the treats should not be set up completely. Spray the inside of the cookie cutter with nonstick baking spray, then press firmly into the treats and gently wiggle. Push out gently onto parchment paper.
If you keep the treats in a tightly covered container or bag, they will keep for about 5 days. Although, we have never had them last more than a day or two in our house.

Where did you buy your cookie cutter from?
I got it on Amazon. There is a link in the recipe card to the one I have and I also added one in the post. It really does make fun treats!
It says you can make up to 5 days early..
Do u think this is something that can be frozen ?
You can freeze rice krispie treats, but I personally don't recommend it. They can lose some of the texture and flavor once frozen. Plus, as they thaw the M&M's can become discolored. I honestly think rice krispie treats are best when served within 3 days.
