Picnic mickey

Are you planning a family picnic this Memorial Day Weekend? Add a little Disney magic to a simple cupcake by adding these easy-to-make Mickey Mouse chocolates.

To make these chocolates you’ll need chocolate candy melts, wax paper, a microwave safe squeeze bottle or microwave safe disposable decorating bags and my Mickey Mouse template.

Below is the template that I created with the use of a Mickey Mouse craft punch.  Print it out to get started!

Using the template underneath a sheet of wax paper makes creating Mickey Mouse candies a breeze.  Simply melt the chocolate in the squeeze bottle or in your decorating bag, snip a small hole at the end and then cover the blue Mickey heads with chocolate. Once the chocolate has cooled, flip them over and your miniature Mickeys are ready to magically transform your cupcakes!

One important tip to make your candies fabulous ~ do not try to trace the Mickey head to create the candy.  This will give the candies bubbles on the back side, instead of the smooth finish you see on the candies pictured on the blue plate.  Instead, apply chocolate in the center of the large circle until it fills the entire circle.  Follow with adding the ears by applying chocolate again in the center of one ear until it fills the ear and then complete Mickey by adding his last ear.  Talk about easy!

Have a Magical Monday everyone!

    • Thanks Sean! Disney touches to everyday items always makes a day more magical. Don’t you agree? :) Thanks for visiting the blog today!

    • Thanks for stopping by the blog Lisa! The little Mickey’s are great to sprinkle on so many treats. I can’t wait to see what you will create!

    • Sounds yummy! I haven’t tried putting them in cookies but just may now that you suggested it! :) If you try it, I’d love to see the results. Thanks for stopping by the blog Lori!

  1. Thanks for the tips! I’ve made some chocolate Mickey heads before but haven’t really been as successful with them as I wanted to be. Going to have to try to make them again with your tips :)

    • Thank you Kimberly. These little Mickeys are made of mint chocolate so they tasted perfect with a white cupcake. I think a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter icing and milk chocolate Mickeys would be super yummy too! Any cupcake with our pal Mickey is a good one :)

  2. I love it, this is really cute I might try it for our next get together for the little guest.
