Easy Disney Mickey Treats
If your household is like mine, everyone is getting bored and everyone is tired of eating the same old things. No better time than during a country-wide lockdown to get the kids involved in some easy treat making! Disney Family is full of great recipes, and these are just a few of our favorites.
Mickey Rice Crispy Ice Cream Sandwiches
Mickey Rice Crispy Ice Cream Sandwiches! This easy frozen recipe brings the best desserts together, topped with fun rainbow sprinkles—what more could your family want? My grandchildren love these because it combines two of their favorites – ice cream and Rice Krispie treats!
- 1 (10-Oz.) bag mini marshmallows
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 6 cups crisp rice cereal
- 1 gallon ice cream
- Colorful Sprinkles
Other Materials Needed
- 9 x 13” baking pan
- Parchment paper
- Mickey Cookie Cutter
Line the baking pan with parchment paper.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the marshmallows and butter.
Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in-between each, until the marshmallows are fully melted.
Mix in the cereal and stir until evenly coated with marshmallow cream.
Divide the mixture in half. Press half evenly to form a thin layer on the lined baking pan.
Remove it and line the pan again with parchment.
Press the remaining mixture into a thin layer on the pan.
Spread a thick layer of ice cream over the mixture in the pan.
Place the second cereal layer on top.
Freeze for 1 hour or overnight.
Use a Mickey cookie cutter to cut out shapes from the sandwiches. (You may need to soak the cutter in hot water to make cutting easier.)
Roll the sandwiches in sprinkles
Additional time: let rice krispie treats with the ice cream between layers set at least one hour or more in the freezer. Over night is ideal.

Mickey Waffle Cake
Wait until the kids see this one! This Mickey Waffle Cake is so simple and easy to make that you’ll be wondering why you never thought of this.
The recipe calls for boxed white cake mix but I have made this one with waffle mix also!
- 1 box of white cake mix + ingredients required
- Food Coloring
- Optional Toppings: Whipped Cream, Maple Syrup, Chocolate Syrup, Sprinkles
- Mickey Waffle Maker
Make batter according to the instructions.
Divide batter evenly into 4 or 5 bowls—depending on the number of waffles you want and how tall you want your waffle cake to be.
Add several drops of food coloring to each bowl of batter.
Turn on your Mickey waffle maker.
Pour batter into the center of the Mickey Mouse shape and follow the cooking instructions for your waffle maker.
Let waffles cool.
Assemble your waffle cake by adding whipped cream in between each layer, if desired.
Drizzle with your child’s favorite topping.

Mickey Peanut Butter Cookies
So – here’s my secret with these -n sssshhhhhhhh! We love these but sometimes just don’t feel like going through making the peanut butter cookies part from scratch.
So – we use peanut butter cookie dough mix from the cake mix aisle (sometimes) but even easier yet is the refrigerated roll of peanut butter cookie dough! No prep time involved at all. Using the refrigerated roll of peanut cookie dough will have these treats ready in 15 minutes! (I also use the refrigerated roll to make the ones with the Hershey Kiss in the middle).
I’m including the full recipe here for those of you that are more energetic than I am!
- 1-3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick butter (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1/2 granulated sugar (with some extra for rolling)

- 2 dozen regular M&M’s and 4 dozen mini M&M’s
- Nonstick spray or vegetable oil for cookie sheet, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix together flour, baking soda and sale - set aside
Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, peanut butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and light brown sugar
Add egg, milk and vanilla and beat until well blended
Gradually add flour mixture and mix thoroughly
Spray with oil or line cookie sheet
Roll dough into 2 inch balls
Roll balls in sugar and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet
Bake until light brown and puffed (6 to 8 minutes)
Remove sheet from oven and lightly press regular size M&M’s into center of each cookie has Mickey’s head, and place two mini M&M’s on either side as Mickey’s ears. Allow cookies to crack slightly when pressing M&M’s into cookie.
Return cookies to oven for 2 to 3 minutes until light golden brown.

Disney Parks Churro Bites
These will take a bit more work but everybody loves Churro Bites so they are worth the extra effort. Disney Parks Blog published this recipe today while I was getting this post ready so I knew I had to include it.
This recipe is inspired by the churros that can be found at the Disney parks. The recipe serves four people.

- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
- 1-1/4 cup all purpose flour

Bring pot to rolling boil.
Reduce heat to low.
Add flour and stir vigorously until mix forms a ball.
Remove from heat and let rest for 5-7 min.
Add eggs, one at a time, and stir until combined. Set aside.
Heat oil in medium skillet or 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat or until temperature reaches 350˚.
Spoon dough into piping bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe 1-inch strip of dough over saucepan, cut with knife, and drop into hot oil.
Repeat until churro bites fill saucepan with room to fry.
Fry churro bites until golden brown. Remove with slotted spoon or mesh spider strainer.

I’ll keep sharing recipes while we are not able to visit the parks. One thing I love about Disney is all the recipes we can make at home to remind us of our trips to Disney. From snacks, to drinks, to full meals – there are lots of recipes out there for us to use.
Over the last few weeks I’ve also shared:
An Oldie but a Goodie is the Mickey Cookies n’ Cream Milkshake. This one is a huge hit at my house!
- White frosting
- Red Sanding Sugar/Sprinkles (about ½ cup for 2 shakes)
- 4 yellow M&M Candies
- Red yellow, and black sprinkles
- 6 cups vanilla ice cream
- 10 Oreo Cookies
- 1 cup milk
- Whipped cream
Decorate your Mickey cup.
Carefully spread a small amount of white frosting along the outside of the top portion of the cup by making a nice smooth layer.
Use your hand and lightly roll the frosting portion in the red sugar until covered completely.
Place a little dot of frosting on the back of each M&M then press onto front of the cup about 1 inch apart to make your buttons.
Using a blender, place vanilla ice cream, Oreo Cookies and milk into a blender.
Blend until well combined.
This is a medium consistency; you can add more or less milk to your liking.
