You know we like to follow the Disney food trends here on Disney Food Blog, and one that we’re noticing more and more are the “dessert sandwiches” that keep popping up.
Of course, Disney has seemingly always offered the beloved Carrot Cake Cookie and Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich, and now there are a few more options. Let’s take a look at some old and new favorites!
Whoopie pies (cake-like cookie sandwiches with frosting or whipped cream in the middle — borne out of the Northeastern United States) are a huge trend nationwide; and over at Sunshine Seasons in The Land, they’ve introduced a red velvet whoopie pie with your favorite mouse right on top!
The frosting inside is buttercream, not cream cheese, but we’re pretty happy with it either way!
Decked out in chocolate chips, this is a great one to try while you’re waiting for your Soarin’ fastpass to open up!
The pound cake “fries” have strawberry “ketchup” to add to the look-alike whoopie pie “burger”. It’s an innovative boardwalk dessert…and delicious!
Carrot Cake Cookie
Writer’s Stop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is home to the Carrot Cake Cookie, another whoopie-pie like menu item featuring two soft, cake-like cookies with delectable cream cheese frosting sandwiched in between. These days, you can also find these goodies at Sweet Spells in the Studios.
Note that these are HUGE. You can probably share with a friend, spouse, or kid (but you don’t have to!).
Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich
While this could definitely make a great breakfast entree, we’re loving this one as a dessert sandwich! Nestled inside a full-size waffle, you’ll find chocolatey-hazelnutty Nutella and a large serving of fruit.
Homemade Ice Cream Sandwich
Huge, freshly-made cookies with generous scoops of ice cream is a snack large enough to share. But, you don’t have to! Homemade ice cream sandwiches are one of our favorite WDW park treats (and you can even get them for a snack credit!).
You’ll have several opportunities to snag one while you’re in the parks — the Main Street Bakery and Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom, Dino-Bite Snacks in Animal Kingdom, Fountainview Cafe in Epcot, and Hollywood Scoops in Hollywood Studios — all make them!
Depending on the season, you’ll even have some wonderful options to customize your ice cream sandwich. For ice cream flavors, we’ve seen mint chocolate chip, peppermint, and pumpkin. During holidays, select cookies with colorful sprinkles — or even choose gingerbread snowflake cookies!
Brownie Frosting Sandwiches
Technically called “Brownie Creme Sandwiches,” we absolutely adore these homemade brownies with a rich, just-out-of-the-oven taste! And the vanilla frosting piped in is extra-sweet and creamy!
We were really excited to see two more versions — peanut butter or chocolate brownie sandwiches — on a recent trip to Disney World! The Peanut Butter Brownie Sandwich’s frosting is more like a filling. Peanut butter cup lovers — this one is for you…
Chocolate-filled brownie sandwiches will appeal to chocaholics! With super-sweet brownies containing extra chocolate chunks and ooey-gooey chocolate frosting in the middle, you’ll get your chocolate fix with this selection!
Earl of Sandwich has also brought in some ice cream brownie sandwiches, so if ice cream is your preference over frosting, you’re in for a chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry treat!
Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwich
This classic Mickey ice cream sandwich has crisp chocolate wafers with cookies and cream ice cream sandwiched in the middle of an iconic Mickey face!
This treat is easy to find at the many ice cream kiosks around Walt Disney World’s parks and resorts.
