If you’re of the opinion that dunking something in chocolate makes everything better, I’ve got a few snacks that you really need to sample!
Here are my top five chocolate-covered snacks in Disney World and Disneyland (not necessarily in order of beloved-ness ;-)). And I can’t wait to hear yours (mostly because then I get to go find them and chomp them)!
Chocolate-Covered Sea Salt Caramel
I found this treat on one of my many Karamell-Küche visits in Epcot’s Germany! One of several chocolate-y and caramel-y treats, it’s got the benefit of three distinct tastes and textures.
The chewy, super-sweet caramel is the central feature and taste, and it’s complemented by that creamy milk or dark chocolate (the dark chocolate will give a slight bitterness to the taste, which gives even more depth to the flavor!). The sea salt on the top gives a slight crunch and a solid kapow to your taste buds, making the sweet even sweeter! If you’ve been avoiding the salty-sweet trend that’s become so popular, this might be the best way to take your first step into that taste juxtaposition! You can always brush some of the salt off if you don’t like it.
Peanut Butter Sandwich
This gorgeous confection, which I simply refer to as the peanut butter sandwich, used to be sold at Disney Parks on both coasts, but lately we’ve only found it in Disneyland. (It IS in Disneyland, though…I promise!)
With peanut butter piled high on a graham cracker then enrobed in chocolate, we’re pretty sure there’s nothing in the candy counter that tops this. It’s easily one of my favorite chocolate-y snacks in any Disney park.
Mickey Premium Bar
Who can deny that the Mickey Premium Bar is one of the most beloved theme park snacks ever made?? This cold, creamy treat can certainly take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.
Yep — the snack is simple. Creamy vanilla ice cream covered in a sweet chocolate shell. It’s a Klondike Bar on a stick. The perfect sweet treat for walking, park touring, and enjoying the day with your family! (Don’t forget that you can also get these on the Disney Cruise Line, where they can even be delivered to your state room!)
This is a classic treat that is hand-made in Disney parks (Main Street Confectionery and Candy Palace)! Sweet, crunchy, buttery toffee is covered in a thick layer of chocolate and dusted with crushed nuts.
While many folks don’t like the addition of the nuts, it does give the snack an extra dimension and another flavor. I could go with or without, honestly, as long as I can have that toffee and chocolate!
Goofy’s Candy Company Custom Snacks
And who can forget the most customized of Disney snacks?! At Disney World’s Goofy’s Candy Company you can choose from several snacks and get them created just the way you like them.
On my last visit, I had some white chocolate-covered pretzels with crushed butterfinger; and a gorgeous white-chocolate-drenched, crushed-Oreo-covered, milk-chocolate-drizzled Mickey rice krispie treat!! Oh, yes. I did.
And they tasted like stars and unicorns because Annie made them. How awesome is Annie?!
SO, my friends, there are lots of amazing chocolate-covered treats in Disney’s parks and resorts and these are just my top five. (And trust me — there are plenty of runners-up!)
I’d love to hear about your favorite chocolate-y treats! Let me know about them in the comments section below so I can get to chompin’!!
