So, parties are a family affair at our house!  My kids love a good party!

Here is my cast of characters “helping”.  You will notice the little one on the left…ummm, yeah!!  The middle one loves to help and is missing those 2 front teeth.  Our oldest only jumped in on the action at the end!  Here we go!

Step 1:  Make Rice Crispy Treats

We went old school and used the recipe from the Kellog’s website:

3 TBSP Butter

1 Bag of Marshmallows (10 oz)

6 Cupse  Rice Crispies

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS:
In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.

Step 2:  Shape Treats into Minnie Mouse

To create the Minnie/Mickey Mouse Shape, we used a glass to make the larger circle.  Then we put smaller balls of rice crispy treats into ziplock bags, rolled into a ball, flattened and shaped with our hands.

Step 3:  Eat!

As you can see the family continues to “help”!  Dad even jumps in to lend a hand!  All in all, pretty fun night with the kids!  You can see below my husband is eating the one I attempted to dip in chocolate…then realized that I was really bad at dipping them.  So, I scrapped that idea.  I would say it makes them all the yummier and worth attempting. I am certain you will be better than I was at that.

This was actually pretty quick.  The kids loved to help and they were cute for the party.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as we obviously did!!!
