‘Celebrating Mickey’ Movie Night – A collaboration with Just a Sunshine State of Mind

In honor of the true originals, Mickey and Minnie are celebrating in Disney World and Disneyland with a new parade, dance parties, and the cutest sweet treats and merchandise! They have entertained and brought joy into peoples lives for 90 years! I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the compilation of Mickey shorts celebrating some of their special moments! I was so excited to finally have a copy of Steamboat Willie!

I’ve been obsessed following my friend Susan from Just a Sunshine State of Mind, try all the new sweets and snacks in the Walt Disney parks! She always finds the tastiest treats and can’t wait try some for myself. Susan so kindly agreed to help me create some treats to celebrate with the dynamic duo at home. So get ready to move it and shake it to the grocery store to make 3 delicious and fun Mickey shaped treats!

Who doesn’t love a Mickey shaped treats, especially with their cake pops dipped in velvety dark chocolate. My kids love the cake pops from Starbucks so these were a huge hit! They freeze well too, so tuck some away for a rainy day.

The Mickey Bar Cake Pop


Ingredients

1 boxed cake mix and ingredients to make it (I used Funfetti Cake mix)

1 tub of icing

2 bags of dark chocolate melting wafers, I prefer Ghiradelli

Popsicle sticks

Directions

Follow the directions to bake the cake and allow to cool. Crumble using hands, or food processor, into a large mixing bowl. Spoon in icing and mix until well combined. Spread cake mixture evenly on a small jelly roll about 1″ thick. Put it in the freezer to chill.

After an hour or two, use a small Mickey cookie cutter to cut out several Mickeys. Insert a popsicle stick thru the middle to create a cake pop and set aside. Melt dark chocolate wafers according to package instructions.  Carefully dip cake pops into the chocolate and set them on the wax paper to dry.

The cold cake pops will cool the chocolate quickly, you may have to reheat the chocolate once or twice to keep a smooth velvety texture.

The best part of Disney is that it can be enjoyed by all ages, just like this recipe! I have vivid memories making Rice Krispies treats with my grandma when I was younger. It was so much fun spending time with her, helping her stir and letting me dump jars of sprinkles on top. We both loved sitting at the table talking about school and everything in between. She would have loved this recipe and hope you do too!
