We are officially Disney fanatics!! (so, these Mickey Christmas Treats can’t be missed on my blog!) Some of you may know that already but for those of you that don’t … WE ARE! Plain and simple… We’ve spent a bit of time at Disneyland this year (done pretty well considering we live 12 hours away!) Our annual passes are about to expire SO, I ran down for one last quick trip. It’s so FUN at Christmas time!! It’s totally decked out from head to toe, of course! I took pictures with all the Disney Christmas Trees to share with you! They’re just so beautiful and enormous they take your breath away. While we were there I kept seeing these cute Rice Krispie Mickey Heads! I figured I could duplicate something similar at home… just had to buy a Mickey head cookie cutters and I knew I could put these little Mickey Christmas Treats together…
|Mickey Christmas Treats|
|Make half batch of Rice Krispy Treats or a normal batch in a cookie sheet so it’s thin enough to use a cookie cutter|
|Place Krispy Treats on waxed paper, press cookie cutter, pull away krispy’s|
|Mickey head shape or whatever suits your fancy!|
|Cutting out 2 sizes helps minimize the Krispy Treats leftovers|
|Melt chocolate chips with 1 tsp oil in microwave until creamy and smooth|
|Dip 1/2 of shape in chocolate|
|Use a spoon to help cover|
|Add sprinkles while chocolate is wet so they stick|
|Let dry until set (appox 1-2 hours)|
|Adorable!! If you want them on a stick then insert sucker stick once the chocolate is set!!|
I’m sure you noticed the price at Disneyland for three Krispy Treat Mickey Heads on a stick! These Mickey Christmas Treats are a much better option and just as cute : )
Here are the pictures of the Disneyland Christmas Trees…
