DIY Cars 3 Inspired Rice Krispy Treats!

Hey All!

I don’t know about you, but I love Disney. If you’re new here or just started following us, we’ve been huge Disney lovers since like birth! I think I came out singing Disney musical songs. I even have a section on the site dedicated to all things Disney, in case you haven’t checked it out. You got almost 10 years of Disney coverage there to enjoy! I was super excited to see Disney/Pixar’s new movie Cars 3 was coming out this month, so I decided to make these super easy and fun DIY Cars 3 Inspired Rice Krispy Treats! They aren’t perfect, but they are a super cute! You’re kids will only care if they are fun and tasty, not if their perfect folks! They are to perfect treat to take to go see the movie or to include in your Cars themed parties!

Here is how to make them!

  • 1 pkg. 8 count Rice Krispy Treats or you can make your own and cut them into small rectangles.
  • 1 pkg. Mini Oreos.
  • Wilton Chocolate Candy Melts in the Yellow, Milk Chocolate and Red Colors.
  • 1 pkg. M&M’s.
  • 1 pkg. Trident Gum or any white small rectangle candy.
  • 2- Airheads Candy, white mystery flavor individual size.

First you start by laying out 3 whole Rice Krispy Treats on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cut another one into a half piece treat and two others into third-size treats and lay each on the tray with the whole treats. You now have 3 sets of treats.

In 3 separate bowls, melt each color of chocolate. Heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between times, until completely melted.

You then dip the first set of treats that has a whole piece and the half piece into the brown chocolate, completely coat. This set will be Mater. Set the smaller piece on top of the whole piece to resemble a car windshield. Repeat this step with each of the other sets and each color of chocolate. These will be Lightening McQueen and Luigi.

Using the Airheads candy, cut 3 windshields to fit onto the cars. I made mine rectangle with little cut outs at the top to resemble the Cars characters. Press these on each car.

Cut a mouth out of the candy for the red and yellow car. Press this on the bottom piece of the car where the bumper would be. Pull apart the Oreo cookies, and press 4 on each car. Use green, blue, and brown M&M’s for the eyes. Put a dab of melted chocolate on the backs and press on the windshields. On the brown truck, put a line of chocolate on the bottom piece and place 2 gum teeth where the bumper would be.

Extra optional steps are: pipe a line of chocolate on the yellow car over his mouth to resemble a moustache. Use an edible marker to put black dots on the eyes.

That’s it! You’re done!

I hope you enjoy these fun Disney themed treats as much as I do! You should definitely take these Lightening McQueen, Luigi, and Mater treats with you when you go see Cars 3 in theaters June 16th!
