Happy 4th of July!! Hoping today is filled with fun and relaxation and an appreciation for the United States of America! I mean today can be a salute to all countries as well, but, still, mostly America. (Anyone know where that thought is from? I’ll give you a clue, it’s a show you can find in Hollywood Studios…leave me a comment below if you know it!) If you’re heading off to a BBQ or just want to bring a little Disney 4th of July fun into your home, be sure to try out this recipe. A super easy Rice Krispie treat recipe with a little extra special Mickey magic!
Mickey 4th July Rice Krispie Treat Supplies
6 C. Rice Krispies
10 oz Package of Marshmallows
3 Tbs Butter (We used vegan butter and it worked just fine!)
9 x 13″ Pan
Red and Blue Popsicle Sticks
White Chocolate (We LOVE this kind!)
Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter
1. Step One
Gather up all your supplies! If you can’t find a dark blue sanding sugar, light blue looks great in this craft as well. We found the colored popsicle sticks at the Dollar Tree, but non-colored one’s work great too. There is a ton of color in the decorated Rice Krispie treat alone!
2. Step Two
Make the Rice Krispie Treats: Coat 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray. Melt butter in a large pan over low heat. Once melted add in the marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows have melted. Remove from the burner and add in the Rice Krispies cereal. Mix until well coated, but try not to smoosh all the cereal in the process. Pour the hot mixture into the 9 x 13″ pan and flatten it out with the back of a buttered spatula. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, use your Mickey Mouse cookie cutter and cut out each individual Mickey shaped rice Krispie treat. Once cut, immediately insert the popsicle stick into the bottom of the Rice Krispie treat. Be sure to keep your hand on the Rice Krispie treat to keep the treat together and to ensure the popsicle stick isn’t going to shoot through the other side!
3. Step Three
The fun step! Time to decorate the Mickey Mouse 4th of July Rice Krispie treats! First, lay out wax paper and place rice krispie treats along the wax paper, ready to pick up. Second, pour the white chocolate into a wide microwave safe bowl. Microwave the white chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring often. Once the white chocolate is melted either 1) place the Rice Krispie treat face down into the bowl to cover with chocolate or 2) take a spoon and pour on the white chocolate to one surface of the Rice Krispie treat. The chocolate might be runny so lay the Rice Krispie treat flat, chocolate side up quickly. Let the chocolate partially set.
4. Step Four
Once the white chocolate is partially set, decorate with the sanding sugar. Divide the Rice Krispie treat in half, covering one half loosely with a piece of paper above the surface of the white chocolate, if you want to decorate it with red and blue. If you decorate the white chocolate when it is still completely melted, the sanding sugar will melt and might not give you the desired look.
5. Step Five
Let the white chocolate completely set and cool. Now it’s time to enjoy the Mickey Mouse 4th of July Rice Krispie treats!
