I love Rice Krispie Treats. I seriously think I enjoy them more now than I did when I was a kid. Whenever I go to Disney, my favorite treat to splurge on is their Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treat, dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles. Some people have their Dole Whips, I have my Rice Krispie Treats. If you've ever made Rice Krispie Treats at home, you know they're a crowd pleaser without too much effort. Inspired by my favorite Disney treat, I decided to upgrade my homemade treats, and now I'm sharing my method with you! You can make these for any occasion, not just Christmas, by switching out your cookie cutter and sprinkles.
I first tried one of these Rolo treats at my best friend Mary's wedding back in 2016. Her husband's Aunt Patty is famous for them, and I spent my the entire afterparty shoving my mouth full of these beauties, hovering over the bowl and glaring at anyone who tried to sneak their hand in. They're so good that I had to go home and make them myself, and let me tell you, they are so easy that my toddler could make them (well, if he could reach the oven and had the self-control not to just eat the ingredients raw, neither of which he can do yet). They quickly became a go-to party staple for me, both due to the ease at which you can make them (seriously, the most time consuming thing is unwrapping the Rolos), and how much everyone loves eating them.
