Mickey M&M Rice Krispie Treat Disney Copycat Recipe

Disney treats are an important part of our Disney World and Disneyland traditions. In fact, I’m so obsessed that I bring cake pops and Mickey Rice Krispie treats home as souvenirs. However, sometimes we are craving a classic Disney treat and can’t make it to the parks. That’s when making Disney Copycat Mickey M&M Rice Krispie treats at home keeps some of the Disney magic alive.

Mickey Rice Krispie treats are a staple at Disney World and Disneyland. There are specially themed versions during different seasons, but our favorite one is the always available Mickey M&M Rice Krispie treat. 

What could be better than a traditional Rice Krispie treat coated with chocolate and mini M&Ms on one side? You can easily find these treats at Big Top Souvenirs at Magic Kingdom or Marceline’s Confectionery in Downtown Disney at Disneyland.

Making Your Own Mickey M&M Rice Krispie Treat

This seemed like a straightforward Disney Copycat recipe to figure out. However, it was more difficult than I expected to make them look like the official Mickey M&M Rice Krispie Treat.

The original Disney park versions are really large, and we usually end up splitting them. For our at-home version I used a smaller Mickey head cookie cutter to make them an individual size (affiliate link: Buy on Amazon).

A couple of notes:

I can’t leave a regular recipe alone and always make some modifications. Instead of following the exact recipe on the Rice Krispie Box I cut back on cereal and added extra butter plus a dash of vanilla extract. I think this makes the base Rice Krispie treat taste even better. You are free to follow the original recipe if you prefer.

I used a small Mickey head cookie cutter because I wanted a smaller version of this Disney parks treat. The portion size is great, but the head shape was less obvious once covered in chocolate and M&Ms.

Adding a bit of vegetable shortening, like Crisco, to the semi sweet chocolate chips helps make the melted chocolate smooth. The shortening makes it easier to spread the chocolate plus adds a pretty shine when cooled. too.

If you are craving this treat, but don’t feel like making them Mickey shaped that’s fine! To save time I often make a full pan of the treats without cutting them. Once the marshmallow cereal mixture is pressed into the pan, I slather the top with melted chocolate and sprinkle with mini M&Ms. Not quite as cute, but just a delicious.

Disney Copycat Recipe: Mickey M&M Rice Krispie Treats

Mickey M&M Rice Krispie Treat

This Mickey M&M Rice Krispie treat recipe will bring a bit of the Disney magic to your home when you can't be at the parks.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 10-ounce package of marshmallows or 4 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 5 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ tablespoon of shortening
  • 5 ounces of M&M's Minis

Instructions

  1. Spray a 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  2. Melt butter in a pan. Once butter is melted, add marshmallows. Stir frequently until the marshmallows are fully melted. Then add vanilla to melted marshmallows mixing well.
  3. Add Rice Krispies cereal to the pan with melted marshmallows. Mix thoroughly until cereal is coated.
  4. Press cereal mixture into the prepared pan using a buttered spatula or wax paper.
  5. While treats are cooling put half a bag of semi sweet chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl with a ½ tablespoon of vegetable shortening. Stir after every 30 seconds of heating until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  6. Flip your pan over a cutting board and the treats should easily come out onto the cutting surface. Use a Mickey head cookie cutter cut out your Rice Krispie treats.
  7. We tried dipping the treats into the chocolate, but using a spoon to slather the melted chocolate over the top of the treat worked better for us.
  8. Sprinkle M&Ms over the melted chocolate until the top is covered. Place finished treat on a cooling rack or plate until chocolate hardens (which takes about an hour at room temperature).
  9. Store treats in a airtight container and enjoy as soon as possible.

Notes

I used a small Mickey head cookie cutter because I wanted individual sized treats. This smaller cutter made for less clearly defined Mickey head shapes once covered in chocolate and M&Ms. Use a larger cutter if you want a better looking version and don't mind a bigger treat.

To save time I often make a full pan of the treats without cutting. Once I have put the marshmallow cereal mixture into the pan and spread it out, I slather the top with melted chocolate and sprinkle with mini M&Ms. Not quite as cute, but just a delicious.
