As you know, we are big Marvel fans, so when Disney and Marvel collaborated to create the amazing Big Hero 6 movie, we were pretty ecstatic. And after my recent visit to LA to interview the film directors and voices behind Tadashi, Hiro, and Baymax – I couldn’t wait to bring home the movie for my boys. I decided to plan a fun after school adventure last Friday, complete with Baymax Rice Krispies Treats.
Once lil guy and I picked J up from school we headed to our local Walmart store to buy their exclusive Big Hero 6 gift set with bonus DVD. The entertainment department has the “new releases” stand easy accessible from the aisle. As you can see L was pretty excited to have the movie in his hands. We also picked up the ingredients needed to make our fun Baymax treats.

How to make Baymax Rice Krispies Treats:
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 – 10 oz package of marshmallows
- 6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
- Vanilla frosting
- Black cupcake/cookie gel (We used Wilton’s Sparkle Gel)
Directions for Rice Krispies Treats
First, melt butter on low heat in a large saucepan. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated. Next, transfer the mix to a 13 x 9 pan coated with cooking spray or wax paper. Use a buttered spatula to press the mixture into the pan evenly. Let cool for 15 minutes or so.
Baymax Rice Krispies Treats
Step 1. Using a circle cookie cutter, cut out the Baymax heads and place them on a dish. I used the back of a spoon to press the center of the circle to make more of an oval shape for his head.
Step 2. Spread an even amount of vanilla frosting on the Rice Krispies Treats.
Step 3. Next, cut the tip off the black gel and create Baymax’s eyes with a line between them.
That’s it! A super easy and fun craft for the kids – that’s yummy too! Don’t they look cute? The boys loved helping me master these Baymax Rice Krispies Treats, especially the eating part. 😉 These are perfect for any upcoming movie night plans you may have or a Big Hero 6 party you’re hosting.
