SO excited about this perfect-for-winter recipe.
This time of year, where I come from, Apple is the King of Winter Flavors!
So I was super psyched to see this amazing recipe from Steakhouse 55.
Warm Apple Butter Cakes
Warm Apple Butter Cakes have it all — Caramelized Apples, moist Butter Cake, and a drizzle of Caramel Glaze spiked with Jack Daniels (!!) to top it all off. And what’s better? Since you make the cakes in individual portions, you don’t have to share. Sweet! [Read more…]

It’s been so much fun hunting down all of the Halloween Treats at the Disneyland Resort this year.
Halloween is by far my very favorite time of the year. I have so many photos of spooky delights and although I’d like to try every single item, I’d also like to fit into my Halloween costume in a few weeks. So, instead of a full review on each of these Halloween Time treats, let’s just look at some calorie free photos! Most of the items I’m featuring in this post can be found in Candy Palace at Disneyland, Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure, and Marceline’s in Downtown Disney. If an item is specific to a certain spot, I’ll let ya know!
Let’s start with these adorable Mickey o’ Lantern Cookies!
Followed by some Mickey Bat Cookies! I love the tiny orange fangs!
New for 2014 are the Haunted Mansion Clock Crispy Clock & Mickey Mummy Crispy Treats. How cute are the little M&M eyes peeking out from behind the mummy’s “bandages?”
There’s also a new Jack o’ Lantern Marshmallow Wand. This one I might have to get my hands on. Four fluffy marshmallows are dipped in caramel, then coated with white chocolate and covered in orange sanding sugar. I love that each pumpkin has a [Read more…]
In keeping with their Gourmet Apple Series, the candy makers at the resort have dreamed up a brand new, ice cream-inspired confection — the Banana Split Gourmet Caramel Apple!
But how do you get a caramel apple to taste like banana split? Disney magic, of course!
Seriously, though — the Mammoth Apples are first dipped in Caramel. After that, they’re coated with [Read more…]
Gourmet Caramel and Candy Apples are legendary at Disney. And come January, guests at Disneyland (and possibly Disney World, too!) are going to have a brand new apple to add to the list!
But seriously, this is one of the most gargantuan caramel apples I’ve ever seen!
Since Disney hasn’t released a name, we’ll go with the [Read more…]
Boo to You! Halloween time is officially upon us! And during my recent visit to Walt Disney World, I had a blast checking out all of the awesome Halloween-themed treats.
Whether you prefer cute and sweet or spooky and sinister, you’ll find just the right sweet for Trick or Treat!
There’s nothing better than a colossal caramel or candy apple! My favorite, hands down, is this ghoulish Poison Candy Apple, inspired by the film Snow White. It’s fantastic, isn’t it?! As far as I can tell, it’s a standard candied apple covered in green-tinted white chocolate!
Prefer your spooky with a side of caramel? Then this Skull Chocolate Covered Caramel Apple is for you! With both white and milk chocolate, it’s wicked delish!
You don’t have to look far to find apple treats that are inspired by Mickey himself. The Jack-o-Lantern Mickey Caramel Apple is covered with bright orange sugar that makes it all sparkly.
And don’t you love the pool of white chocolate that makes up Ghost Mickey’s trailing “hemline”? Really, white chocolate specters are the tastiest, don’t you think?
Pure, sweetness is also on tap with these [Read more…]
