Join Kelly as she whips up three of her favorite Disney inspired treats (Dole Whips, Churros & Rice Krispie treats). If you want to “cook” along with her for any (or all) of the treats, make sure to have the ingredients for your choice of treats on hand. Otherwise, you are welcome to just watch & learn!
ps. All three treats are deceivingly simple & super yummy.

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

Fluffernutter Churro Recipe

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup marshmallow cream
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Make churros & immediately sprinkle with a couple teaspoons cinnamon sugar mixture.
Place churros onto a serving plate.
Warm peanut butter in a heat proof bowl for about 30-45 seconds in the Microwave. Stir until smooth then transfer to a ziplock bag. Snip corner and use as a little piping bag to drizzle peanut butter over churros.
Warm marshmallow cream in a heat proof bowl for about 30 seconds in the Microwave. Transfer to a ziplock bag, snip a corner and use as a little piping bag to drizzle over churros. Top with mini chocolate chips and serve warm.
Rice Krispie Treats Recipe
8 tablespoons butter (cut into 1 TBSP tabs)
1 package (10 oz) marshmallows
1/4 tsp vanilla
6 cups rice Krispies cereal
Optional: 2-3 Tablespoons colorful sprinkles
10 ounce bag white chocolate melts (1 1/2 cups)
10 ounce bag mini M&M’s
Place marshmallows, butter and vanilla in a large microwave safe bowl.
Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute at a time, stirring in between minutes, until mixture is melted and smooth.
Slowly mix in rice cereal until well coated.
(Note: this is also the time to add in colorful sprinkles if you are doing so.)
Prepare a 13 x 9 baking dish with parchment paper, and spread mixture. Because these are uber soft and chewy treats, you need to let them cool for at least 45-60 minutes.
Cut into fun shapes or about 3inch by 3inch squares to make about 10 servings. Feel free to dip in melted chocolate for even more fun!
