We think Ghirardelli knows all about our dessert cravings because this summer they said “We’ll give you S’more!”
When discussing the best desserts in Disney World, what comes to mind? Do you think of EPCOT’s treats, like Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe’s School Bread? Or a classic snack, like a Cheshire Cat Tail, from Magic Kingdom? Maybe you like to venture to Animal Kingdom for Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse from Pandora? Or, do you dream of a Hollywood Studios favorite, like the Grapefruit Cake from Hollywood Brown Derby?
Disney World’s parks are probably what you think of when discussing dessert. But what about Disney Springs?! Yes, there are amazing options there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and our favorite “meal” (we like to consider it a meal, anyways) of all — dessert?! Today we’re sharing the best desserts Disney Springs has to offer!
We’ve been hard at work scoping out all the latest news for you this week. Today we have all the details on what’s happening that affects the Disney Parks.
See all of our coverage on Disney park closures and reopenings HERE. We still have a LOT to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in… .
While Disney Springs has many places to chill and dine after a long, crowded day at the parks, we often find ourselves on the hunt for ice cream or chocolate!
That’s why we’re SUPER thrilled that we can get BOTH our chocolate and ice cream fixes in one hefty scoop with Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop’s Quake Shake!
There’s a brand new, fun, and interactive store in Disney Springs as well as a ton of other changes! See everything we found this week!
Happy Holidays, Everyone
The winter holiday season is officially underway, and that can only mean one thing…Fantastic Holiday Treats!
And while I love cupcakes and cookies and such, one of my favorite ways to celebrate this time of the year are the yummo drinks that pop up at Walt Disney World!
There are so many great ones to choose from, but here are a few of my favorites. I can’t wait to have them again this year!
Hot Salted Caramel
For the last few years, a delightful little holiday kiosk has popped up in the Germany Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. They started by serving glühwein and a few other tasty treats. But last year, the spot opened as Prost!, and served up a myriad of treats from Karamell-Küche!
My favorite find? The Hot Salted Caramel!
When I first saw this on the menu, I assumed they meant salted caramel hot chocolate. Which would also be, you know, totally fine. But NO. They meant straight up, hot caramel, in a glass, with a pinch of salt just for fun.
And my oh my…it’s amazing. So rich that you probably won’t be able to finish it, but you’ll relish trying if you’re anything like me. I am still dreaming about this one. All of the richness of that golden, buttery Werther’s Caramel in drink form?? Sign me up!
It was so much fun checking out the delicious holiday treats at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! And the Streets of America Newsstand Holiday Eats is a great place to snag a snack or a warming beverage right before you head back to check out the Osbourne Family Lights!
If you’re ready for a little break in your day, you must try out the Spiced Eggnog. If Christmas were available in a cup, then this would definitely be in the running for the title.
After all, it’s just not Christmas without a serving of this rich, creamy treat! And spiked with [Read more…]
Um…is it seriously possible that I haven’t already written this post?!?
You guys know how much I lurve peanut butter and anything peanut buttery, so I’m pretty surprised I haven’t done this article yet for you. BUT, it’s time to correct that error!!
As you can imagine, this is such an epic post that it will encompass my favorite peanut butter treats in both Disney World and Disneyland. If you’ve ever needed a reason to visit one or the other of the coasts, but haven’t been able to come up with one…well, you’re welcome.
Get ready to crave!
Peanut Butter, Banana, and Candied Bacon Pie at BoardWalk Bakery
One of the newer PB treats that I’ve run across is the fantastic Peanut Butter, Banana, and Candied Bacon Pie. Find this incredible square-shaped tart at the newly renovated BoardWalk Bakery (read our complete review of the brand new space here.)
The pie has everything. Check out the combo of sweet-salty all smooshed together into a soft and crunchy texture.
Even though it’s brand new, it’s already a classic in my book.
If you haven’t made a visit to the new BoardWalk Bakery, drop what you’re doing and go. Now. (And bring me one of these.)
Oh, and I have to show you the inside…
That filling is like nothing you’ve ever had before… . Sigh.
Peanut Butter Brownie Creme Sandwich at Earl of Sandwich
I’ve gotta admit…this is one of my favorite sandwiches at the Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney.
While the regular sammys are great here (my favorite is the Italian Sandwich), their Brownie Frosting Sandwiches (or brownie creme sandwiches as they call them) are totally where it’s at. These come in vanilla and chocolate as well as the decadent Peanut Butter Brownie Sandwich.
Two super-moist, super-fudgy brownies (with chocolate chunks in ’em, too!) envelop a thick serving of peanut butter filling. And the peanut butter here isn’t whipped or light — it’s full-on peanut-butter-cup-filling.
Nice and dense, it’s the perfect consistency to stand up to the brownie. This one is a must-try.
Peanut Butter Sandwich
Ah, such an unassuming name for such a knock-em-dead treat. The Disneyland Peanut Butter Sandwich may be the perfect peanut butter and chocolate snack.
Made with just three ingredients — peanut butter filling, a graham cracker, and milk chocolate — it sounds so crazy simple. And yet, I cannot resist [Read more…]
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the Girardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop!
I hope you’re hungry, because we’ve got a lot of ground to cover. But let’s talk about atmosphere first:
I know, I know — you want to see ice cream. Okay…you can be naughty and scroll ahead to see the photos, but come back up here when you’re done to read all about the place or [Read more…]
