Lightning McQueen Disney Treats
Are you a fan of the Disney movie Cars? I first recall watching the Cars movie as an early years teacher. One of the 3-year-old boys I looked after was crazy about Lightening McQueen.
I really enjoyed the movie and so did my daughter when I introduced the Cars series to her. Today on the blog we are sharing a Disney Cars Inspired crispy treat.
This would be a great treat to take to the movie or have at a Cars themed party. I hope you like the tutorial.

What You Will Need For These Disney Treats
- 8 count Rice Crispy Treats
- 1 pkg. Mini Oreos
- Wilton Chocolate Candy Discs, Yellow, Brown and Red
- Gum, white small rectangles
- Two Airheads packets, white mystery flavour individual size
Let’s Make It
Lay 3 whole Rice Crispy 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 coloUr of chocolate.
Heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring between times, until completely melted.
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 colour 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.

What quirky cakes for a party! My eldest loves cars at the moment, he would love these!
That is very, very cool! I would not have thought to turn rice crispy treats into these. Very creative! My youngest loved Lightening McQueen when he was younger. I kinda miss those day:)
Nicely done Angela. These look so good. Bookmarked the post to try with the kids later.

These are adorable. Id never have though of using rice crisoy treats to make them. I must admit I’ve Init seen the film simply recognise the red car
