Disney World Food Hack: The Mickey Ear Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich

It’s time for a fabulous Disney Food Hack! This one’s for all my fellow Ice Cream Sandwich lovers out there — but it’s nothing like the ones you can already snag around the World at spots like Sleepy Hollow and Hollywood Scoops.

AAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!

AAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!

Nor is it one of the Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches from L’Artisan des Glaces. OR a Gelato Sandwich from the Gelato Stand in Epcot’s Italy. OR the Double Chocolate ice cream sammie from Tamu Tamu in Animal Kingdom. It doesn’t even involve Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Sandwich (although it is so quintessentially Disney).

BEST DISNEY FOOD HACK EVER!

Nope; this is bigger, better, and the most glorious mess you’ve ever seen. (This is also a great one if you have a bunch of leftover Disney Dining Plan snack credits!)

Now, don’t get me wrong. I love those, too. But a few weeks ago we got an awesome idea from our DFB Instagram Followers @OfftoNeiderland…and we devised this craziness based on their creation.

The Mickey Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich With Peanut Butter Sauce is one of our favorite Disney food hacks ever!

Be prepared: assembly requires a couple of stops along Magic Kingdom’s Main Street, U.S.A… and probably a couple of empty stomachs.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s take it step by step.

Step 1: Main Street Confectionery

To make this Mickey marvel, your first stop is the Main Street Confectionery.

This is where you’ll pick up not one, but TWO Large Mickey Chocolate Chip Cookies. You know the type: chocolate-dipped ears with tons of chocolate chips dotting the slightly salty dough. These are $5.49 each ($10.29 for two, or two Disney Dining Plan snack credits).

Don’t forget you can get these beauties in Sugar Cookie variety as well, if you prefer! (And in peanut butter cookie variety in Hollywood Studios if you’d like to recreate the hack there!) But note that those also come in a smaller, “regular” size, and you are definitely going to want opt for the LARGE.

Step 2: Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

Now that you’re all cookie’d up, your second stop is the Main Street Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, where you’ll order two scoops of ice cream in a bowl.

There are several flavors from which to choose, including Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream (that’s what I got!), No-Sugar-Added Butter Pecan, Mint Chocolate Chip, No-Sugar-Added Raspberry, and Fat Free Chocolate/Vanilla Swirl. There are allergen-free options as well. This will run you $5.29 or one Disney Dining Plan snack credit.

Optional step (although, is the pièce de résistance ever really “optional”?): Order a side of warm peanut butter, caramel, or chocolate sauce for $.69 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.

We went for peanut butter because warm peanut butter is the only thing better than regular peanut butter.

Phew! You’ve gathered all of the components. But there’s no time to rest because you don’t want your ice cream to melt. Let’s GO!

Step 3: Assemble

I’m sure you can see where we’re going with this. Slather that delicious ice cream onto one Mickey Cookie.

If you’ve opted for some sauce, drizzle that liquid joy right on top.

And there you have it, friends! A delicious and seriously indulgent DFB Disney Food Hack!

We acknowledge it’s a pretty substantial splurge once you add all of those components together. But if you’ve got a plethora of snack credits to burn or you just really, really love Mickey Cookies (like we do!)… well, this is one epic and shareable treat that you won’t soon forget.

    I agree with Mike – more food hacks!

    This is a great idea – I hope to try it on my next trip :)

    To midigate some of that mess, you can also take the sauce and swirl it into or top the ice cream before layering the second cookie. Okay… maybe it won’t be less messy, but you’ll probably get more in your mouth rather than on your fingers with pouring directly on the cookie. :)
