We traveled back to Disney’s Riviera Resort today to see try some more delicious desserts!
While we reviewed a TON of delicious goodies at Le Petit Cafe, today we wanted to review the ever-so-chocolatey Bouchon Brownies!
All these holiday treats at Disney World sure are getting us into the holiday spirit!
The most wonderful time is in full swing in Disney World! From the Double Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwich to the Peppermint Soft-Serve, Animal Kingdom has been serving up all kinds of festive goodies! Today, we’re heading over to Creature Comforts in Animal Kingdom to try out another cheery treat — or should we say cranberry treat!
With a name like Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe you know there will be jolly sweet treats in store for you! That’s exactly what we found at our stop here on our Holiday Food Crawl around the Disneyland Resort!
This holiday season the Jolly Holiday Bakery has five sweet treats on their limited-time Holiday menu. And you know we tried all five of them!
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!
Here at the DFB we love to be surprised (in a good way) by the eats we pick up at the Disney Parks. And when that surprise comes in the form of dessert, it’s even better! Such was the case with the Brownie Temptation at Main Street Bakery in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
Main Street Bakery is the park’s Starbucks location, and it can be found on Main Street, U.S.A. In addition to Starbucks beverages and Starbucks-branded snacks, guests can also find more unique items.
The Brownie Temptation is being advertised on a temporary sign, and the picture doesn’t elicit a ton of enthusiasm. It looks like a pretty standard brownie with (admittedly tasty) sauces.
The reality is a nice, gooey bowl of sweetness, so an improvement over the photo. 😉 (An over-abundance of sauces is almost never a bad thing!)
The mound of whipped cream and drizzle of caramel are prominent.
The warm peanut butter and chocolate sauces spill over the sides and pool in the bowl, which is a good thing because the brownie is actually larger than I expected it to be. The choice of plating with the bowl contains all of those sauces.
The brownie itself is dense and moist, providing a lot of bang for the buck in terms of richness and chocolate flavor.
Overall, this one really surprised me! Why? Ha ha — I got a message on instagram asking “Why would you think a brownie with yummy sauces would be bad?” But the truth is, a LOT of Disney brownies are super dry and can’t be saved by the sauces in question.
So, the Brownie Temptation was much more tempting in person than in its signage, and it really delivered! Due to the richness of everything combined, it’s definitely share-able, but if you decide to attempt it on your own, might I recommend finding a cozy spot in the shadow of Cinderella Castle where you can linger over the classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate?
Yeah, I thought so. 😉
What Disney Parks food has surprised you (in a good way) when you tried it? Let us know in the comments!
Wow! They have been busy at Wilderness Lodge’s Roaring Fork in Disney World!
We collected a whole round of updates for you, which will be coming soon to the blog. But first we’ve gotta share our favorite new item!
We’re no strangers to Mickey and Minnie Ear treats at Walt Disney World, and we love when a new take comes out on an old favorite! That’s the case with these new Minnie blondies!
We first tried them wayyyyyy back in 2012, when Chocolate Brownie reigned supreme. And we recently spotted these Blondie and Strawberry Brownies at Panchito’s Gifts and Sundries at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
Who doesn’t love capping off a night at Disney World with a Fireworks spectacular? I know I do, whether I’m standing shoulder-to-shoulder with literally thousands of other guests in the Hub of Magic Kingdom or taking it all in from the balcony at California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
But there is one thing that can make a nighttime show even better…
And that’s DESSERT. Better yet, make that plural: DESSERTS.
That’s where Fireworks Viewing Parties come in! At present Disney is offering the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party at Hollywood Studios, and the Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at Epcot, which pairs desserts and a ride on the Frozen Ever After attraction with a showing of IllumiNations.
But on my last trip, I booked what might be the highest in demand of them all: the Happily Ever After Dessert Party (technically named the Fireworks Dessert Party) at Magic Kingdom. [Read more…]
It’s almost time for the official grand opening of Pandora: the World of Avatar, but several DFB team members were able to secure an Annual Passholder Preview so that we could give you all the scoop on the foods and drinks you’ll find in Walt Disney World’s newest land.
So today, we’re trying three Pandoran prepackaged snacks, which you can find in various locations in Pandora. And these are totally thematic, people!
First up is the Teylu Gummi Candy. As the story goes, teylu are similar to shrimp and serve as a main source of protein for the Na’vi people. We can’t say the same for the gummies (no protein here!), but they definitely look the part!
They’re skewered on a stick, just as the Na’vi might skewer their teylu to cook over a fire. Great detail, right? Flavors here are, thankfully, not shrimp, but instead: Dragon Fruit, Lemon, and Fruit Punch.
When you stop by Fountain View in Epcot for your Starbucks fix, there’s a new sweet treat to try!
There are two ways to ride Soarin without a FastPass: groggily walk to park opening and make a mad dash to be first in line, or leisurely stroll into Epcot and stand in the hours-long line that’s waiting for you. So whether you make your coffee stop before or after, Fountain View will come in handy.
You can’t miss Fountain View on your way to the back of the park. It will be looking over Epcot’s amazing fountains directly across from Mouse Gears and right next to Club Cool.
