Happy Holidays, Everyone!
The winter holiday season is officially underway, and that can only mean one thing…Fantastic Holiday Treats!
And while I love cupcakes and cookies and such, one of my favorite ways to celebrate this time of the year are the yummo drinks that pop up at Walt Disney World!
There are so many great ones to choose from, but here are a few of my favorites. I can’t wait to have them again this year!
Hot Salted Caramel
For the last few years, a delightful little holiday kiosk has popped up in the Germany Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. They started by serving glühwein and a few other tasty treats. But last year, the spot opened as Prost!, and served up a myriad of treats from Karamell-Küche!
My favorite find? The Hot Salted Caramel!
When I first saw this on the menu, I assumed they meant salted caramel hot chocolate. Which would also be, you know, totally fine. But NO. They meant straight up, hot caramel, in a glass, with a pinch of salt just for fun.
And my oh my…it’s amazing. So rich that you probably won’t be able to finish it, but you’ll relish trying if you’re anything like me. I am still dreaming about this one. All of the richness of that golden, buttery Werther’s Caramel in drink form?? Sign me up!
It was so much fun checking out the delicious holiday treats at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! And the Streets of America Newsstand Holiday Eats is a great place to snag a snack or a warming beverage right before you head back to check out the Osbourne Family Lights!
If you’re ready for a little break in your day, you must try out the Spiced Eggnog. If Christmas were available in a cup, then this would definitely be in the running for the title.
After all, it’s just not Christmas without a serving of this rich, creamy treat! And spiked with enough “cheer” to keep it interesting, it will warm you up — even though it’s served chilled.
Sea Salt Caramel Hot Cocoa
Okay…so this one isn’t just available at the holidays. But it’s soooooo good, there’s no way I could leave it off the list.
You know how much I lurve salty sweet flavor combos. And salt + caramel?? Is just brilliant. So it’s a no-brainer this one’s tied for the top today. It’s the Sea Salt Caramel Hot Cocoa from Ghirardelli.
The creamy, dreamy cup is the perfect cup of hot chocolate. But THEN — they add that glorious caramel and salty topping for sheer perfection. AND — there’s a square of Ghirardelli tucked into the whipped cream.
Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa
Speaking of salty-and-sweet… I highly recommend that you find Promenade Refreshments on your stroll around Epcot’s World Showcase for a warm cup of Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa. If you like Peanut Butter anything, you’re gonna LOVE warming up with this!
Super creamy hot cocoa with a true flavor of peanut butter, it’s the perfect warm up for you, your friends, the kids, the parents, and everyone else you’re traipsing with through Epcot!
