Put down the candy canes! I repeat, put down the candy canes!! All your sweet peppermint dreams can be fulfilled with one bite of the Double-Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwich at Dino-Bite Snacks in Animal Kingdom.Vanilla ice cream with peppermint candy bits sits between two double chocolate cookies, one of which is dipped in red-swirled white chocolate.
This treat is citrus-y, light, and DELICIOUS! The balance of the simple white chocolate mousse and almond cream cake with the orange curd and candied orange peel makes our tastebuds sing like Orange Bird himself!! We only can hope they’ll bring this treat back after the holidays. Y’know, just without the Santa hat!
What we love most about this dessert is the fact that there is an equal amount of softness and crunch! The peppermint flavor from the mint ice cream and peppermint bark go beautifully together, and the bubble waffle adds a tasty finish to each bite. This treat is big enough to share, so you don’t have to worry about being a lil too stuffed while you hit up the Christmas Tree Trail in Disney Springs!
The flaky crust is so buttery that it basically melts in your mouth. And, that cinnamon-apple filling?? It’s the PERFECT combination of sweet and spice (and everything nice!). If you’re wanting to try something different from all the gingerbread and peppermint, head over to Toy Story Land for this bb!
The “pinecone” is made with chocolate mousse and sits a praline “leaf.” The chocolate mousse is rich, soft, and incredible. We could eat a whole jar of this alone by the fireplace with a spoon (sounds like a great evening to us!). The praline is crunchy and nutty, which adds a lovely twist to the flavor of the treat. And, there’s even a lil surprise of chocolate cake in the praline (yaaaas!).
Okay, we were sold the second we realized the fried squash had cheese INSIDE of it! (Ugh, how can D-Luxe be so good at everything?!) The bacon-cranberry jam has a hint of tartness compared to the juicy turkey burger patty. We really might eat this for our Christmas dinner, you guys!
This yuletide treat is brand-spankin’ new to Disney World’s holiday snack scene, but it definitely made quite an impression on us! We’re calling it a Giant Cake Pop because it’s round and cakey, but it takes the cake for being the LARGEST cake pop we’ve ever seen!
We found the Giant Cake Pop at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa’s Gingerbread House snack shop this morning during its ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning. This tasty treat consists of a tennis ball-sized serving of rich, moist chocolate cake (we’re NOT exaggerating — that’s how BIG this thing is!) It’s so delightfully fudgy and delicious, that we’ll be dreaming about it for a long time, and heading back to the Grand Floridan before the end of the holiday season to grab it again!
After looking at all those treats, we might have to do a dessert crawl in Disney World! ‘Tis the holiday season, you know. (;
