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. 😉
