It’s Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort, and you know what that means! Halloween-perfect bunting and Mickey Jack-O-Lanterns, of course!
But here at the DFB, we’re ready for treats of a sugary kind! And thankfully,there are tons of spook-tacular options! We gave you a sneak pre-BOO a couple weeks ago, and now our Disneyland correspondent Heather Sievers (hi, @DiningInDisney!!) has started trying them all!
She began the Halloween Time treat extravaganza at Jolly Holiday Bakery and Cafe, where the pastry case is always full of awesome eats. For Halloween Time, they’ve really outdone themselves! Oogie Boogie is back in krispie treat form!
Maleficent looks positively delicious in this form, with purple sugar details and delightfully green glaze.
As for cake pops: they got the Poison Apple treatment! Remember the Poison Apple Stein? These are equally creep-tacular!
Individual dessert treats cover a lot of tasty ground, including the Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake (which is character-less) and the Cruella De Vil Brownie!
Guests looking for a cupcake option will find the Graveyard Cupcake. And the Mickey Mummy Macaron is back this year! (It was just as cute last year!)
Heather wanted to get in on that dessert action, so she grabbed the cheesecake, brownie, cupcake, and macaron! Yea for us! 😉
The Pumpkin Layered Cheesecake is a fantastically pumpkin-y treat that Heather describes as a 50/50 mix of pumpkin pie and cheesecake. So pumpkin lovers: dig in!
The layers are essentially pumpkin pie filling and rich cheesecake, but the topping was also a real winner. The pumpkin spice whipped cream is topped with a sprinkling of crunchy bits, and they are awesome.
The Cruella De Vil Brownie is rich and chocolate-y. Topped with white and black frostings and a white chocolate piece featuring the namesake villain, the serving bowl actually takes the cake… uh, brownie. It’s dalmation-printed!
Heather’s only complaint here was that very, very black frosting. But if you can live with that and must have a brownie at all cost, this one will do!
The Graveyard Cupcake is a good chocolate option, too, if you decide to forego that black frosting. There’s a white chocolate printed tombstone stuck into buttercream that’s covered in cake crumbles to resemble soil. Loving the detail.
The best way into this treat is to pull that wrapper apart. When you do, you can see the dark chocolate cupcake and chocolate buttercream. There’s also a raspberry filling in there that Heather says is unnecessary because the rest of the cupcake is stellar without it. But overall, this is a solid option!
The last Jolly treat she tried is the Mickey Mummy Macaron. How cute is this? Even with those big goofy eyes, we’re loving the distinct Mickey shape and delicate mummy wrapping.
The perfectly crafted macaron is vanilla flavored and tasty. But it’s what’s inside that counts, right?
And what’s inside is cookies and cream buttercream that gave Heather grey stuff vibes! Yum! This is a great treat to share with the kiddos. On second thought, just get two so you don’t have to share. 😉
We’re going to take you on a Halloween Time journey of treats and eats over the next few weeks, so come along!
