The point is, we lurrrrrve them. And we know that you do, too. And when you’ve got a waffle craving — a MICKEY WAFFLE craving — nothing else will do but to make the real thing at home.

But how?

Fortunately, Disney Food Blog has the inside scoop! (You just KNEW we’d come through for you. Yes??)

See, it’s not just enough to get a Mickey Shaped Waffle Iron and call it a day. (Although we are gonna get to that in a sec.) Nope. You and I know there’s something super special about Mickey Waffles. There’s that distinctive Disney flavor.

I always thought it was Disney Magic. And maybe it is. But… turns out —  with the right tools, you can make Mickey Waffles at home that taste exactly like the ones you enjoy at Disney.

YASSSSSSS. Let that sink in for a minute. Ok. Moving on.

To make this happen, you’re gonna need two things. You’re gonna need 1. the right recipe; and you’re gonna need 2. a waffle iron shaped like the Big Cheese. (Unless you can sculpt waffles. And really. Who has that kinda time?)
