Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well, we are doing great! My garden is coming along very nice with all the sun & warm weather. So this month for my food column I decided to share recipes that I came up with that many of you already make but I had a special tool in my kitchen that you all may have too! This special tool is my Mickey Cookie Cutters, they aren’t just for cookies!
I was in the mood to make Rice Krispie treats! Since I was going on a road trip to Wisconsin with my sister in law & nephew I thought this would be a great snack for the road. Then I thought I wish I could shape them into something, then thought why not try to make them into Mickey Rice Krispie treats!!!!! Then I went to my drawer pulled out the cutters & thought how can I make this work. It was much easier then I thought! My daughter was amazed that I made them & she snagged some for her & our cousin when she was going to visit. The rest were for the trip that my nephew enjoyed & asked where I found them, Aunt Darlene’s kitchen:) Since I only had half a batch of marshmallows in the house I did a half batch of the treats & still ended up with about 8 Mickey Treats! Which was the perfect amount! With the full recipe I would think you could get about 16 depending on how full you fill the cutters.
Mickey Rice Krispie Treats
3 Tbls butter
1 package 10 oz regular marshmallows or 4 c miniature marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispie cereal(Cocoa Krispies would work too)
Mickey Cookie Cutter (sprayed with non-stick cooking spray)
Cookie sheet baking tray
1) In a large saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows & stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2) All the Kellogg’s Rice Krispie Cereal. Stir until well coated.
3) Place the parchment paper on the cookie sheet. Then place the cookie cutter on the tray, using a buttered spatula or wax paper press mixture into the cookie cutter. Make sure it is full. Then carefully pull the cookie cutter off. You will have a gorgeous looking Mickey Rice Krispie treat! Then you move onto making the rest. I had 2 cookie cutters so I did 2 at a time.
4) I then slipped the treats into individual Ziploc bags for freshness. Perfect for each person to have their own delicious treat!
Next I would like to share with you one of my daughters favorite breakfasts! Mickey Chocolate Chip Pancakes with the Mickey Cookie Cutter! Until I practiced making them a few times they weren’t always the pretties of pancakes but still very yummy!
Mickey Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Aunt Jemima Pancake mix
1 c Aunt Jemima Pancake mix
1/4 c milk (I use 1%)
1 Tblsp oil
Handful of chocolate chips
1) Heat pan over medium heat, spray some non-stick cooking spray.
2) Combine all ingredients & stir until large lumps disappear & let stand 1 to 2 minutes until it thickens.
3) Spray the cookie cutter with non-stick cooking spray. Put the cookie cutter on the pan, then I use a 1/4 c measuring of the mix & pour it into the cutter. Then I let it get light brown & I very carefully flip the cookie cutter over with a pair of non-stick tongs & a spatula. Let the other side brown then plate & serve. We use Aunt Jemima syrup with some butter to finish this yummy breakfast off!
I hope you enjoy these recipes & hope you experience with your Disney kitchen tools! You never know what else you can come up with unless you try! Until next month!
Have a Magical Day, Darlene NagiShare
