#DisneySide Treat Recipes

Remeber when I posted about my DisneySide @Home Celebration? I promised I'd share the recipes, and here they are! 

This is a REALLY simple, really delicious treat. All it takes is a few scoops of ice cream, some milk, malted milk, and a little pixie dust*.

*Okay... I used sprinkles. I'm out of pixie dust at the moment.

You can make this a glass at a time, or put together a large batch to share, the idea is still the same. I lightly packed (read: not smooshed) several scoops of ice cream into a large cup, added enough milk to just reach the top of the ice cream, then dumped a generous spoonful of malted milk powder over top. Mix with a spoon - you want it to be a little lumpy, like an ice cream soda. Or if you don't, just throw it all in the blender, but it's not as much fun. I poured the treat into smaller cups for the kids, then sprinkled a dash of everyone's chosen colors on the top. So. Good. And that's it. Drink, and repeat!

For my popcorn cake, I used a cake pan in the shape of Mickey's head, for obvious reasons. You can use a regular square pan, or (preferably) a bundt pan. You'll also need the following ingredients:

(1) bag microwave popcorn or equivelent
(1/2) bag mini marshmallows or about 8-10oz
(1) cup mini M&Ms (or more, if you want!)
(1/4) cup butter

Pop your popcorn in the microwave, the put in a large bowl - large enough to mix.
Butter your pan to keep your cake from sticking, then set aside.
Melt the remaining butter in a large pot.
Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until completely melted!
Once your marshmallows are melted, pour over your popcorn and mix to completely coat the popcorn.
Add your M&Ms now, and mix until well blended. It's sticky, but you can do it!
Pour the mixture into your pan, using a large spoon to push the popcorn to the shape of the pan.
*tip: Your spoon will stick to the marshmallow. Occasionally wet your spoon with water, and it will glide over the mixture!
Let sit for a few minutes to cool completely. This should only take about 5-10 minutes. Loosen up at the sides using a butter knife or something similar, then turn the pan over to release the cake onto the serving plate of your choice. You might need to give it a little hand, literally, but it should come out fairly easily.

What treats do you like to serve at your get-togethers?
