While at Disney World you may have indulged in a Rice Krispie Treat Mickey Mouse. It is definitely something we always get and also bring home with us! They are just plain cute!
Instead of Rice Krispies, I have Cheerios that no one is eating, just sitting there, a huge new box, not being eaten. It's driving me crazy, so I had to think of a creative way to use them up! 3 ingredients is all you need, a 10.5 oz bag of mini marshmallows, 3 tablespoons of margarine plus some for greasing the pan, and 5 cups of Cheerios. Put the marshmallows and margarine in a large microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, and then 1 more minute. Mix into the Cheerios and spread into greased 13x9 inch baking pan. Flatten down with greased hands and refrigerate for about an hour. You can find the recipe and nutritional information at the Cheerios Website.
After about an hour, using a greased cookie cutter, cut out shapes, pulling away the excess. Put the cut-outs on waxed paper in the freezer for about 15 minutes to stiffen up. Prepare baking sheet with waxed paper (to catch excess chocolate) and place cooling rack over the top. Melt Chocolate Candiquik according to package instuctions, about 1 block per cut out. Working one at a time, spoon chocolate over the cut-out spreading it with the back of spoon and add sprinkles. When finished, refrigerate for about 1/2 hour to set up. Now you have made your own fun theme park treat with a twist, perfect to surprise your little ones with!
