We try to focus on fun after school lately and these kid-made Mickey Rice Krispies treats are perfect for a fun activity and snack!
Mickey Rice Krispies Treats
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are a little intense about our after school snacks lately. Because school has been a bit stressful, but making an elaborate snack seems to help diffuse some of the tension. Also, it’s just a great way to reconnect over something fun. So, when the kiddo asked if we could make Mickey Rice Krispies treats a couple of days ago, I was all in.
Little did I know that it was going to turn into this fantastic experience with treats, chocolate, candy AND fun. If you’re ready to make an after school snack that’s epically enticing and enjoyable, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Mickey Treats
- Start by getting a Mickey cookie cutter like this set here. There’s just too much fun you can have with a handful of different sized Mickey cookie cutters. Cookies. Fondant. Rice Krispies…so many fun ideas.
- I love these Mickey treats, but the best part? That candy coating. HA! So, definitely plan on getting a big bag of mini M&M candies to get your candy experience on.
- Oh, and the kiddo decided that these needed to be treats on a stick–which is what led us to the dipping in chocolate and then the M&M’s. But that turned out to be a great idea. So, if you want to do the same, grab some food-grade popsicle sticks here.
How Do I Make Mickey Rice Krispies Treats?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
- 3 Tablespoons Butter
- 48 Regular Marshmallows
- 12 oz Melting Chocolate
- 10 oz. Bag Mini M&M’s
- In a saucepan over low heat, melt butter.
- Add marshmallows to the saucepan and stir continuously until they are all melted.
- Remove the marshmallow mixture from the stove and add the Rice Krispies cereal. Stir the mixture until fully coated.
- Add the Rice Krispies mixture to a 13x9 inch baking dish, pressing it down gently, compacting it nicely. Allow the treats to cool to room temperature (about 10 minutes on the counter or about 5 minutes in the fridge).
- With the cookie cutter, cut out 6-8 Mickey head shapes from the treats in the baking dish. Place them on a plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes or so until they harden.
- Remove the Mickey treats from the refrigerator and carefully press a popsicle stick through the bottom.
- Melt the melting chocolate using the directions on the package.
- Dip each Mickey Rice Krispie treat in the melted chocolate, covering each completely.
- Place the mini M&M’s on a plate in a thick layer, then dip each chocolate covered Mickey treat into the M&M's to coat them completely.
- Drizzle extra melted chocolate over the M&M's then allow them to rest in the fridge for about 5 minutes for the chocolate harden and enjoy!
