Since Valentine’s Day will be here soon, I couldn’t help myself by making these delicious Rice Krispie treats using my new Mickey Mouse Ears cookie cutter.
It’s a fact, that each time that I visit Walt Disney World which is quite often and not to mention I’m an annual passholder “Yay” that I leave their bakery or confectionery shop with tons of ideas and of course their yummy desserts.
Just last month when my family and I were at Magic Kingdom I seen this cookie cutter that was calling my name and had to get it.
Let’s face it, if you ever walked into their confectionery shop on Main St you are bound to get something. Specially since it smells so heavenly in there. Don’t you agree?
My husband actually said to me, Hey, let’s make Mickey Ears for the kids. I said to myself “Yes” Let’s do it! Then Rice Krispie treats came into mind.
Rice Krispie treats are so yummy and really easy to make plus the kids really do love them.
Like most recipes, the preparation is time consuming but once you take a bite of that delicious treat it’s all worth while.
I wouldn’t consider myself a “foodie” just a regular mom that enjoys baking special treats or desserts for my family.
Sharing is caring so I am sending my love with this recipe.
You will need:
One box of Rice Krispie Cereal (Any Brand will do)
Four Cups of Mini Marshmallows (Any Brand)
Three Tablespoons of Butter
One package of Paper Straws
As desired you may use M&M’s, Reese’s Morsels, White Chocolate, Chocolate or Confectionery Hearts to decorate
Parchment (Wax) Paper
You begin with placing your butter in a large saucepan and melt butter over low heat.
Start adding your marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat once finished.
Add your 6 cups of rice krispie cereal, stir until coated.
Press mixture into your 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. I found using cooking spray makes my life easier when removing.
Once removed and cooled then simply press down on your Mickey Ears to make them into the perfect shape.
Using Valentine’s Day candies, such as M&M’s and hearts certainly will get the kids attention.
Overall, it cost me about $10 (Includes the cost of the Mickey Ears) to make which is awesome for such a great Valentine’s Day treat.
Prep time about 30 mins or less.
Give it a try and let me know how you make out!
As Mickey says, “See you real soon”.
