Part two Of Mickey Party - Rice Krispy Treats & Crayons

We are on to part two of things made for the half birthday party for Caden at school (I love they do this for Summer birthdays).  I not only wanted to make the cupcakes that I posted yesterday, but some fun things.  I knew this day was coming so I went on Amazon and bought some Mickey Mouse molds and a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter.  

We started out with crayons, I did really cool ones for the Lego party.  It was so easy so why not do them for Mickey Mouse too.  


What you need
Crayons (pick up dollar store cheap)
Mickey Mouse Silicone Mold
Cookie Sheet
Foil to hold the Mickey Mouse head in place (and not spill, trust me after loosing my mind this was what I finally figured out)

So I picked up a few Mickey Mouse silicone molds on Amazon and went to making crayons.  I picked up some crayons at the dollar store.  The hard part is peeling off the wrappers.  Then I added crayons to each mold.  These molds were larger then what I've used before and took around 5 crayons per Mickey Head.  NOW I put them in the oven and opened the oven to find that they spilled out ... UGH.  I took a breath and came up with tin foil to molded around the bottom of each mold to keep them in place.  THAT worked!  Bake at 350 for 16 to 20 minutes these are deep molds!  Pull them out and let them cool on the cookie sheet before touching.  You can also put in the freezer if you're in a hurry, I only had to make a few so I didn't have to do it this time.




 I added them to a clear plastic bag tied with a red bow and printed out some cute labels to go on the back.  Just so no one tried to take a bite of a crayon :).


Next on my list was some Rice Krispy treats, I saw these on pinterest but all the links were just a picture so I winged it and made my own.

What you Need:
Make Rice Krispy Treats in a pan
Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter
Chocolate Melts 

I made the treats like normal let them cool and then I took my cookie cutter and cut out the heads.  I made sure they were cooled so they were kind of hard.  I took my melts and melted in the microwave for a minute and half.  I then dipped the ears into the chocolate, I put them on a piece of wax paper to cool.  Don't worry if an ear falls off just push it back on when the chocolate cools the ear will stay on :). 




Tie them up with a bow and they are ready to go!
































I know it's a lot of pictures but I couldn't help myself!  Too cute huh?  I was really excited with myself on how they turned out. I hope you all have a great day!

    1. I find if you put another crayon in the mold to melt that makes ears thicker. Also when taking out of the mold start at the bottom and slowly work up to ears to pop out of mold.

      Try adding more crayons that seems to do the trick for me. Let me know if none of this works :)
