We’re big fans of The BOATHOUSE in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs, so when we spot a new dessert on the menu, we get kind of excited. And in this case, we spied something pretty awesome on The BOATHOUSE’s Instagram account.
And since our expectations are high for Sunshine Seasons — and because we’re always on the lookout for new eats! — we like to check out the pastry case here as often as possible. (Maybe we’re just making excuses to eat more desserts…) On my most recent visit, I discovered the new Turtle Brownie. And let me tell you: this is a hidden gem!
This is one indulgent treat! A layer of dense, chocolatey brownie is topped with serious. caramel. action! The layer of thick, gooey caramel on this thing was, like, half an inch thick!!!
And the whole thing is covered in chocolate frosting, pecans, and chocolate chips.
It’s true — a LOT of brownies in Disney World are dry little squares of waste-of-money. But this one? Don’t pass it by, my friends. DO NOT PASS THIS BY.
Consider bringing a brownie buddy… or just get yourself a bottle of milk, park yourself in a comfy booth, and take your time! This hidden gem is our favorite kind: sweet, delicious, and addictive!
Would you share this beautiful brownie or keep it all for yourself? Tell us in the comments!
Today we’re bringing you a special Port Orleans Resort-themed What’s New! We always love an excuse to visit Port Orleans — French Quarter because of the beautiful landscaping, impeccably festive decor, and fun vibes.
We’re at ‘Ohana!! And ‘Ohana means FAMILY.
From the moment you enter ‘Ohana, you’re informed (or reminded, for returning guests) of the meaning of the restaurant’s name. This family-friendly spot is perched atop the Great Ceremonial House at the Polynesian Village Resort, and it’s become a must-dine for guests of all ages — including Disney World first timers!
The warmth of the atmosphere at ‘Ohana really makes you feel like you’re part of a massive extended family (where your server is your cousin), and that’s a really good thing.
‘Ohana has two dining experiences. Breakfast features characters with Lilo, Stitch, Pluto, and the Main Mouse himself. Dinner, on the other hand, is not a character meal, but still includes entertainment (which I’ll show you in this post). In either case, meals are all-you-care-to-enjoy. And while I really do love breakfast here, my most recent visit was for dinner.
You are very welcome here at ‘Ohana! [Read more…]
Karamell-Küche has been churning out ooey, gooey caramel treats in Epcot’s Germany Pavilion since it opened nearly SEVEN years ago.
(I started this blog just over 8 years ago, by the way. Time sure flies when you’re eating your way around Walt Disney World!)
Anyway, it’s all in the name: it’s the Caramel Kitchen, brought to us by Werther’s Caramel. It’s for those of us — and there are those of us 😉 — who adore all things caramel maaaaybe even a bit more than the other candy darling: CHOCOLATE.
Now, that’s not to say that Karamell-Küche doesn’t have a few things in that golden bakery case for chocoholics. Not at all. You’ll find chocolate poured over a Caramel Apple, covering a caramel square, or topping Mickey’s ears on a Krispie Treat.
And now there’s one more that the chocolate lovers — and caramel lovers, of course! — can add to the list to try.
It’s the new Chocolate Caramel Swirl.
Everything you need to know is found in the first glance: it’s a thick cut swirl of chocolate and caramel, finished with chocolate sprinkles surrounding the outer layer. Well, there is one more thing you’d probably like to know: the Chocolate Caramel Swirl comes in at $4.49 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit. [Read more…]
Just when you thought the Matterhorn Macaroon couldn’t get any cooler (Get it? There’s faux snow on top!), it did. Because donut.
And thanks to our Disneyland go-to gal Heather Sievers (aka @DiningInDisney), we’ve got the scoop on this massive treat. The Matterhorn Macaroon Donut is available at the coffee cart in the hub near the entrance to Fantasy Faire. So it’s super convenient to grab along with your morning java (plus they have a bevy of yummy donuts all the time).
But how, you may ask, did the kooky sweet-treat-designers craft a Matterhorn Macaroon Donut?
Lately there has been no shortage of incredible food at Walt Disney World’s Epcot.
Karamell-Küche has become a perennial favorite since its debut in 2010. And why not? It’s a charming stop in World Showcase’s Germany pavilion, and it serves some of the most crave-able sweets in the World. We love the Caramel Corn (and we love watching it be made), but who can resist their unassuming-but-oh-so-amazing Caramel Apple Cookie? We can’t!
And the Caramel Bacon Square is just crazy enough to work! Plus I can always rely on the Sea Salt Chocolate-Covered Caramel to satisfy my sweet/salty tooth (it’s been my on my must-eat list for, like, seven years, y’all!). Just about anything in their shiny glass display cases is delicious. (Well…maybe not the Caramel-Topped Chocolate Brownie. Too dry. Too boring. Too much else to capture my taste buds and attention.)
The menu is pretty self-explanatory, and since the goodies are all on display, you can study your options before making a selection.
And there are so, so many things from which to choose! You will have trouble making a decision, we promise. [Read more…]
You waited all year for pumpkin spice, and Karamell-Küche in Epcot’s Germany Pavilion does not want you to be disappointed!
Several new seasonal treats await at this tiny sweets shop in the World Showcase. Karamell-Küche is one of the best places to satisfy your sweet tooth, which makes sense considering the name translates to “caramel kitchen” in English!
And who doesn’t think a caramel kitchen is a good idea?
When you walk in, you’ll see the treats in all of their sugary glory behind the glass and probably some cast members working on a new batch, too. They have caramel-dipped everything: apples, strawberries, cupcakes, cookies, and a DFB favorite, the caramel-covered popcorn.
It’s Werther’s caramel central.
We’re back with another delicious taste from the 2016 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival!
With all that’s happening this Spring at Disney, you may have forgotten that the Festival is still going strong! Yep — there’s still time to see all of the beautiful flowers and informative exhibits in person. But even better — you can still get out there and experience the Outdoor Kitchens! [Read more…]
