If you’ve been anywhere Disney, you’ve undoubtedly seen the iconic Mickey Ice Cream Bar. It is definitely one of my family’s favorite Disney snacks and we get one every time we go.

Sometimes between trips, its fun to bring a little “Disney magic” home. What better way to cool off on a hot day than with a Homemade Hand Dipped Mickey Ice Cream Bar! Last time I was at Walt Disney World, I picked up this awesome Mickey Mouse Sandwich Cookie Cutter which is what I used to shape these Mickey Ice Cream Bars. I have also used this cookie cutter to make Mickey shaped sugar cookies as well as Homemade Mickey Beignets. It is also great to cut out cute Mickey Mouse peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for my kids!

These ice cream bars are not hard to make. I made them using store-bought ice cream, so the “tough” part is already done for you! When you choose your ice cream, make sure that it is the kind that is sold in a rectangular box. It is so much easier to slice and shape.

What You’ll Need for Hand Dipped Ice Cream Bars

How to Make Homemade Hand Dipped Ice Cream Bars

Step 1

Remove the cardboard packaging from the ice cream.

Step 2

With the ice cream block standing, slice it into thirds, placing each third on a parchment covered baking sheet.

Step 3

Use your cookie cutter to cut the Mickey shape in each slice of ice cream. You will be able to get two Mickey bars from each slice, for a total of 6 Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bars.

Step 4

While keeping the ice cream inside the cookie cutter, transfer the ice cream bar to another parchment lined cookie sheet. This is the tricky part. Shake the cookie cutter at an angle so that only the bottom portion of the ice cream sticks out of the cookie cutter. Keep the top portion inside so that when you push the popsicle stick in, the bar will keep its Mickey Mouse shape. Once the stick is in, you can remove the whole cookie cutter. Repeat with the rest of the bars.

Step 5

Freeze the Mickey bars for 2-3 hours until the popsicle stick is firm and doesn’t move when touched.  Now it’s time to prepare the chocolate for dipping.

Place all of the chocolate chips and 4 tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the mixture on 50 percent power for 30 seconds. Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir. Repeat these steps until the chocolate is completely melted. It should be thin. If the mixture is too thick, stir in more coconut oil.

Step 7

Put the chocolate in a tall container that is wide enough to fit the Mickey bar. I used a plastic container from IKEA. Holding the Mickey bar upside down, dip it in the chocolate. Remove it and let the extra chocolate drip back into the container. Because of the high fat in the coconut oil, the chocolate should harden quickly when it comes into contact with the cold ice cream.

Recipe Notes

Tip: Keep your baking sheet in the freezer until you are ready to use it. That way it will already be cold when you put the ice cream bars on it. *Mickey Mouse Sandwich/Cookie Cutter
