Make the popular Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Treats from Disneyland with a special ingredient PLUS enter to win a Disneyland Vacation!
Some of my favorite memories from Disneyland as a kid were meeting characters, riding the teacups, and eating all the fun Mickey Mouse shaped treats. I don’t know if it was because the ice cream bars looked like Mickey Mouse or maybe Disney uses a special kind of chocolate but those bars are seriously the best treat ever! We don’t make it to Disneyland as often as I would like so I decided to try to make these tasty ice cream bars at home. AND so you can see how good the real deal is I’ve teamed up with Get Away Today to give one of you a Southern California Vacation! Details will be at the end of the post.
But first let’s talk about these ice cream bars. Not only are these fun to eat, but they are fun to make too. And it’s something the kids can help with. After several failed attempts I learned a few things about making chocolate covered ice cream treats. So to save you the headache of upset kids not getting their treats let me tell you what I learned.
First, use an ice cream that freezes hard. The first two times I tried to make these my ice cream melted quickly and I was left with a puddle of milk where my popsicle should have been. I found Blue Bunny was the best to work with.
Second, you want to let your chocolate cool for a few minutes before pouring them over the ice cream. I also used coconut oil to thin out the chocolate so that it was more runny and so that the chocolate would solidify quicker. I used about 1/2 tbsp of coconut oil for every 1/2 cup of chocolate and it worked perfectly.
You can make as many as 10 bars from one tub of ice cream. But make sure to put your Mickey shaped bars in the freezer right after you take them off your cookie cutter, before you make another, so they don’t melt.
- 1 Tub Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1 Package Melting Chocolates
- Coconut Oil
- Mickey Mouse Cookie Cutter
- 1-2" Tall Dish
- Cookie Sheet
- Parchment Paper
- Popsicle Sticks
- Spread ice cream into a 1-2" tall dish (I used a pie pan).
- Cut out Mickey head shaped ice cream bars with cookie cutter.
- Place popsicle stick into bottom of mickey shaped ice cream.
- Cover cookie sheet with parchment paper and place ice cream treats on paper.
- Freeze for 1 hour.
- Melt chocolate in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Continue until chocolate is completely melted.
- Stir in coconut oil to make chocolate runny.
- Remove ice cream bars from freezer and pour chocolate over them.
- Put chocolate covered bars back in the freezer for 1 hour.
