Everyone has a favourite Mickey shaped snack when they are in the parks. Mine is the humble Mickey Krispie treat without a doubt.

I like them dipped in chocolate, covered in butterfinger pieces, smothered in sprinkles and just good old plain style. But these little babies will set you back about $6 and a handful of syns each in the parks so unfortunately I have to limit my consumption...well not anymore, and neither do you!

This recipe is super quick, super easy and uses only 3 ingredients!!
Each Mickey Treat is approx 5.5 syns.
What are you waiting for?

Makes: Approx 18 Mickey Treats
Difficulty Level: Easy Peasy
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Prep Time: 10 - 15 minutes

175g Rice Krispies
300g Mini Marshmallows
55g Low Fat Butter (unsalted preferably) 

You will also need
Greaseproof paper/sheet
A wide based saucepan (non stick would be good)
Fry Lights
Mickey Cutter (or a bit of creative flair)

1. Melt the butter over the lowest heat possible in the biggest pan you have. (the more surface area will make it easier to melt the marshmallows in a minute) You don't want to brown the butter at all, or for it to start bubbling as this will make the treats taste gross so keep an eye on it.

2. Once the butter has melted, tip all your marshmallows into the pan. You will see them start to melt almost immediately. Do not be tempted to turn the heat up.

Try to keep them moving. Stir slowly until all the marshmallows have turned to a smooth melty mush and the butter is fully mixed in so you cant see any pools of butter.

As the mallows start to melt, the butter will make it look like it has all split but it will come together I promise.

3. Once it is all smooth and lovely, take the pan off the heat and add in all the Krispies. You need to work as fast as possible here so that you have longer to shape them in a minute. Make sure all the Krispies are fully coated in the mallow mixture and then tip everything onto your greaseproof.

4. Spray your hands with a couple of sprays of the Fry Light and use your hands to press the mixture out flat. You want to keep them about 1.5cm thick so you can get 18 individual portions.
As long as your hands have the spray on, it won't stick to you at all.

5. Now its time to shape the treats. I used my Mickey cutter, but whatever cutter you use, spray it liberally with the cooking spray else they will stick to the cutter and you will end up in a mess. 


you will need to respray the cutter after every couple of treats you cut out. 

6. Now you will end up with a lot of mixture around the edges of the treats. You could just gobble this all up as offcuts but while the mix is still slightly warm you can repress it into a flat to cut more out. This will let you get about 18 treats out of this mix.
Alternatively, you could just cut them into squares (its easier). 

7. Now you could decorate them however you wish, edible glitter, chocolate, icing.... the list is endless. But be sure to add the relevant syns if you do. 

Enjoy !!
