I am a big fan of re-creating fun Disney treats at home. Especially when I can’t get to the parks as much as I would like.

 

So when I saw these Mickey Bunny Tail Rice Krispie Treats from Disneyland all over Instagram, I knew I had to make them at home.

These treats are available at Marceline’s Confectionery at Downtown Disney at Disneyland. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to travel to California, so off to the store I went!

Ingredients for Mickey Bunny Tail Rice Krispie Treats

 

You might have many of these items already in your, but if not, these items are more than likely available at your favorite grocery store, Walmart, Michael’s, or Amazon.

 

Ingredients to make Mickey Bunny Tail Rice Krispie Treats.

 

  • Butter-For this recipe, salted or unsalted butter can be used. It is your preference. I like to use salted butter in baked goods and sweets because the salt tends to bring out the sweet flavor.

 

A spatula stirring marshmallows in a pan.

 

  • Mini Marshmallows-I have found that mini marshmallows work best when making Rice Krispie Treats. They tend to melt quickly and with fewer lumps. My favorite brand is Kraft Jet Puffed Marshmallows. However, you can use larger marshmallows or marshmallow creme as well.

  • Vanilla Extract-Vanilla Extract really enhances the flavor of these Mickey Bunny Tail Rice Krispie Treats. You can use imitation vanilla extract, but you will definitely see a difference when using pure vanilla. You can get a pretty good deal on it at Costco.

 

A bowl of vanilla extract.

 

  • Rice Krispies Cereal-For the cereal, you can use name brand Rice Krispies or you can use your favorite store brand. I haven’t noticed a difference between the two.

 

A bag of Wilton Bright White Candy Melts.

 

  • White Candy Melts-To get the Bunny Tail treats to look just like Disneyland’s I used Wilton Candy Melts in Bright White. You will be dipping one side of the Mickey Rice Krispie Treat in white candy melts to create the base of the bunny. You will also dip the jumbo marshmallows in order to get the coconut flakes to stick.

 

A bag of pink Wilton Candy Melts.

 

  • Pink Candy Melts-These pink candy melts will be used for the bunny paws. In this recipe I used Wilton Pink Candy Melts. The bag I purchased happened to be strawberry flavored, but they are generally vanilla flavored. Either flavor will work. 

 

  • Jumbo Marshmallows-You will use jumbo marshmallows to make the bunny tails on the Rice Krispie Treats.

  • Coconut Flakes-Sweetened coconut flakes will be used to help create the tail of the bunny. You can find them at your local grocery store.
