I have to apologize to you guys.
I have been horribly remiss in not telling you about this incredible snack yet…but I didn’t even know about it! Just goes to show there’s ALWAYS something exciting to find when it comes to Disney food!!
OK, here we go! Recently, an awesome DFB reader tipped me off to an amazing find at Roaring Fork in Disney’s Wilderness Lodge — the Magic Cookie Bar.
As a big fan of Roaring Fork, I wondered how could I have missed such a thing. So on my recent trip to the World, I made it my mission to get to Wilderness Lodge and try it before any more time passed!
I have to be honest — with everything I eat when I’m in Disney World, it’s hard to completely finish everything. But this? THIS was one of the things on my recent trip that I ate in its entirety! It’s THAT good.
First off, it’s big. I mean, it may not look that big in the picture, but this is a super rich bar, chock-full of deliciousness.
Unwrapped, you start to get a sense of just what went into this. There’s a ton of flavor going on here, with chocolate and butterscotch chips, condensed milk, coconuts, and nuts.
And to put it over the top for me, the whole thing is built on a foundation of brown sugary-tasting graham cracker crumb crust. Hugely moist and rich.
It’s so big that you could share it. But trust me. You probably won’t want to.
I ate a lot of food in a very short period of time last week. But I’ve gotta tell ya — the magic cookie bar, with its decadent deliciousness, definitely stood head and shoulders above the competition!
And if this pic looks so good that you must have one of these right now — you’re in luck! Because we happen to have a recipe that’s guaranteed to bring the flavors right to your own kitchen. (Pssst…we hear that some folks call these Seven Layer Bars. Whatever you call them…they’re a keeper!)
