I am so excited to be hosting this new series called, Disney Outside the Parks! Disney has such a big impact on so many lives and the magical memories that we create with our loved ones stays with us forever. The one thing most of us dread about a Disney vacation, is coming home. A lot of people don’t realize that although they are no longer in Walt Disney World, they can still enjoy the magic of Disney. How you ask? That’s what I am here for! To show you ways and share ideas on how you and your family can bring the magic of Disney into your daily life!
Let’s kick it off with the sweet side of Disney. We all love Disney treats and one of our favorites is the custom made rice krispy treats that you can get at Goofy’s Candy Co. My husband and I had always come back home craving these little sweet treats and so we found a way to have Goofy in our own kitchen! Below you will find the steps to create your own custom rice krispy treats!
Items Needed: Box of rice krispies cereal, Bag of marshmallows, big barks of cooking chocolate, any candy coating you prefer, Popsicle sticks, large mickey cookie cutter. Make the rice krispy treats according to box. Let cool and lay flat on counter. Make sure you cook chocolate exactly according to package. This was the tricky part, cooking with chocolate is very delicate, if you don’t get it at the exact temperature, it won’t work. It took a few tries, but we got it! Press the mickey head cutter into the rice krispy’s to make the heads. Insert sticks into the bottom. Dip the tips of the ears into the chocolate then into your favorite topping. QUICKLY, put on waxed paper topped plate and into very cold freezer for about 15 minutes or so. Keep checking on it. You’re all done!
We hope you have as much fun making these as we did! Remember, just a little Disney at home, makes everyday magical!
