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
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!!!
