First, you need to purchase the mickey mold. You can purchase the mold at many shops located throughout Walt Disney World. Or, if you get home and realized you really should have picked one of these up like I did - you can also purchase them using the Shop Disney Parks app.
And you also need ingredients:
5 cups crisped rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies
4 tablespoons butter
1 10 oz. package marshmallows
colored sprinkles of your choice
chocolate coating (I used about 6 ounces)
you will also need waxed paper
Throw the marshmallows and butter in a microwave-safe dish. Melt on high about 2 minutes - keep an eye on things! Make sure your bowl has room, as the marshmallows expand while being microwaved.
Next stir to be sure the butter and marshmallows are thoroughly combined. The puffed marshmallows will reduce in size.
Add the cereal and stir well. Now is when things start to get sticky! Spray the mold and a piece of waxed paper with cooking spray. Put half the cereal mixture into the mold. Cover with the waxed paper and smash it all in that mold so it is all smooshed tight together.
Remove the wax paper and add the remaining cereal mixture. Re-spray the waxed paper and smoosh the rest of the mixture into the mold.
Let the treat completely cool. If you are in a hurry, you can pop it into the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Once cooled, remove from the mold. Decide which side you want to be the front of the treat and place face down. Cover the bottom half of the treat with a fresh piece of waxed paper so just the 'ears' are showing.
Melt half the chocolate and cover the ears, being careful not to get any chocolate below the waxed paper. Don't forget the sides!
Again, you have to wait for the chocolate to harden. WHY do good things take so long?!?! You can again use the freezer for help if you are in a hurry. After the chocolate is all set, flip Mickey over. Cover the bottom again with waxed paper, melt the chocolate and smother those ears in it! When you are done spreading the chocolate, add your sprinkles. Let the chocolate harden. Again.
And your patience paid off - TA-DA!
