Delicious Disney Desserts– At Home!

I have written before about various Disney cookbooks and online resources like Magical Recipes where you can go to get Disney recipes, and I have to say, I really do love recreating these at home – especially the desserts! I love baking (I love it so much I even blog about it), and I love recreating Disney treats at home too, so I decided I would pull together a list of my faves to share with you:

Top 5 Disney DIY Baked Goods:

 

 

 

Double Chocolate cookies – These are easy to make, and delicious – who doesn’t love chocolate plus more chocolate? You can find these at The Main Street Bakery in Disney’s Magic Kingdom – pair them with a tall glass of milk and you have a delicious snack (or breakfast perhaps? No judgment here)

 

BCupcake

Butterfinger Cupcakes – These are simply amazing – it’s a chocolate cupcake with a fudge center, and its topped with a mound of whipped frosting covered in a chocolate shell encrusted with butterfinger pieces. It’s a lot to take in, but it’s a perfect snack to share (or not share, depending on how hungry you are!). You can find these at Starring Roles over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

CarrotCakeCookie

Carrot cake cookies – a must try at the Writer’s Stop in Hollywood Studios – with two moist cookies encasing a mound of delicious frosting – this treat will satisfy that sweet tooth of yours for sure

chocolate-peanut-butter-sandwich

Chocolate peanut butter sandwich – graham crackers and peanut butter and chocolate combine to make the perfect treat (not to mention one that’s easy to recreate at home!). These squares of yumminess can be found at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom

 

 

Dole-whip-float

Dole Whip –Ok, so this one doesn’t technically count as “baking”, but it IS a Disney cult classic that is loved by all – it’s simple, refreshing, and tropically delicious

I also write weekly articles over at Chip and Company and I have been doing a series on Disney DIY recipes, which has been super fun, to research recipes used at the Parks and try them out and write about them – talk about a delicious experiment!

I highly recommend you give these and my others over at Chip and Co a try at home – whether you are having a party or you’re just hungry for that Disney Magic!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Starbucks Has Landed!

Last April, the news that Starbuck’s was coming to the Disney Parks caused quite a stir – some people were outraged that Starbuck’s would be replacing existing spots like the Main Street Bakery, while others were thrilled that they would finally be able to get a decent cup of coffee at the Disney Parks

Here is a peek at what the New Starbucks locations look like at Walt Disney World:

InsideBakery

The Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom still has that old time charm inside

BakeryCase

The Main Street Bakery still sells baked goods, some are the typical Starbuck’s scones/cakes, but Disney originals are mixed in there too!

Fountain View at Epcot Reopens; Includes Starbucks Products

Fountainview Café in Epcot has been overhauled too – and now serves Starbuck’s beverages and snacks

Disney-World-Starbucks-Cup1

Obviously they can’t just have a regular old Starbuck’s cup, gotta incorporate the Mouse in there too somehow, right?

Looks pretty nice, right?

Personally, I am somewhere in the middle of loving and hating the idea of Starbucks invading Disney – I mean, they are everywhere else already, so why not at Disney, right? And I do love a good latte, so I think this is likely a good change, and I look forward to checking it out in person when I head to WDW this December!

So Many Disney Recipes, So Little Time

minnieBaking

I know I have talked about Disney cookbooks, and there are plenty of them out there that can help you bring that Disney Magic into your home in between trips to Walt Disney World

While browsing online, I stumbled across an amazing website – Magical Recipes which is FULL of Disney recipes from the Parks, Resorts, and Cruise Line! It has a great search function, and I knew I was in the mood to bake some cookies, so it didn’t take me long to find this recipe for Double Chocolate Cookies which are served over at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom (one of my personal favorite spots to grab a snack!)

Check out the delicious results over on my Baking Blog, and check out Magical Recipes so you can recreate your Disney faves at home!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Most Important Meal Of The Day!

Walt Disney World has some of the BEST FOOD I have ever had the privelege of tasting – everything is prepared fresh using the best ingredients, and it really shows in the final product.

Breakfast is no exception, they really go above and beyond at the Parks and Resorts to make sure you have plenty of options to choose from so you can start your day off right and fuel up for a day at the Parks!

TGIF Bfast CP One of my personal fave breakfast spots is the Crystal Palace – a character breakfast spot in the Magic Kingdom featuring Winnie The Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet. The food is amazing here – especially “Pooh’s Breakfast Lasagna” – which is essentially a warm berry bread pudding, and they also serve anything and everything breakfast-related – my fave are the Mickey waffles!

TGIF Bfast TuskerI tried Tusker House for the first time last year, and I have to say, I was impressed! Hosted by Donald and friends (decked out in their safari gear!), this African inspired meal serves up the classics as well as unique items like their bobotie (a spiced egg based casserole which is also served at Boma!)

TGIF Bfast POPIf you’re not in the mood for a sit down meal that early in the day, you can always grab something at your WDW Resort, like this freshly made waffle and bacon from the POP Century Resort

TGIF Bfast CRollIf the Magic Kingdom is your early morning Park of choice (it is for me!) then let your nose lead you over to the amazing smells coming from the Main Street Bakery, and grab a coffee and one of these bad boys – a warm, soft, gooey cinnamon roll

….Ok now not only do I miss Disney, but I’m starving. Breakfast time!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Sugar High!

I have spoken many times before of how amazing the FOOD is at Walt Disney World, and one of my favorite things to get here? DESSERT! There are so many options, and every restaurant does something different and unique

Here are just a very few of the items you can expect to find if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth at WDW:
Start your day off with this amazingly gooey Cinnamon Roll, available at the Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom
Head to Starring Roles at Hollywood Studios for one of these hugely delicious Butterfinger Cupcakes (and yes, that IS a fudge center!)
Buffets (like one of my faves – Chef Mickey’s!) usually have a great variety of desserts – I personally like to try one of everything!
You can’t go wrong with a classic – the Mickey Ice Cream Bar
Pick up one of these red velvet whoopie pies at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot
…Not sure if any of these are the right sweet for you? Well then there HAS to be something here that you would like – the Werther’s Caramel store in Epcot’s Germany has SO MANY yummy treats, but I recommend the salted caramels!
I LOVE to bake (and BLOG about my baking adventures too!), but there is something amazing about letting someone else do the baking, while you get to do the eating! Thanks WDW for helping feed my dessert desires!
TGIF!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Drool-Worthy WDW Sweet Treats

I am the first to admit – I am a sucker for desserts, and I would eat them for every meal if I could, and I love baking them too. In fact, I love baking them so much that I started a blog to chronicle my baking adventures, and have even made some adorable Mickey edibles, thanks to my trusty Mickey Mouse cookie cutter!

So when I travel to Walt Disney World, I tend to seek out restaurants/places to eat based on the desserts they offer, and luckily WDW offers some AMAZING desserts, like these:

Ridiculous Cross Section of The Butterfinger Cupcakes

Why, might you ask, would I call this ridiculous? well its super moist chocolate cake with a fudge center, topped with a mountain of vanilla frosting, a chocolate shell, and butterfinger pieces on top. Its ridiculously amazing, seriously

Cinnamon Roll (yes, that is extra frosting on the top!)

This Cinnamon roll from the Main Street Bakery is doughy, dense, sweet, cinnamon-y deliciousness, and since it was the last one on the pan, we got the leftover frosting – yum!

Red Velvet Cake Pop Cross Section

This picture does NOT do this Mickey Cake Pop justice – the cake is dense, moist, and flavorful, and its coated in white chocolate with pink sugar on top! and the ears? they are made of marshmallows! It was amazing, and not too sweet, which I sort of was expecting it to be, so I was extra pleasantly surprised there!

A Christmas treat- a Gingerbread man sporting Mickey Ears!

I mostly got this because I thought the ears were so cute! But it actually tasted awesome – not too dry just the right gingerbread flavor, but the buttons/ears were kind of bland, just sweet tasting, however I still enjoyed it. Disney does a lot of themed treats for various holidays like Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Halloween, and the various seasons as well

Case full of caramel goodies at Karamel Kuche

I had so much trouble deciding between all these amazing treats! I finally settled on a dark chocolate salted caramel – it was awesome!! Can’t wait to go back and try more goodies!

 

My fave places to grab a yummy treat?
Starring Rolls at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Main Street Bakery in the Magic Kingdom
Main Street Confectionary in the Magic Kingdom
Karamel Kuche in Epcot’s Germany Pavillion
Goofy’s Candy Co. in Downtown Disney (not technically a bakery, but they do sell some amazing candy and sweets!)

There is so much amazing food at Walt Disney World, and I have never had sweet treats as good as these anywhere else, they are worth checking out next time you are in WDW, and I would love to know.

What are YOUR favorite Walt Disney World Sweet Treats?

TGIF!!!
