Best Desserts Ever!

We saved the BEST desserts for last!  There's magic all over Disneyland.....even in their desserts!

If you walk to Critter Country and go around the back of splash mountain you'll find this great section where magical desserts are made!  There's a small meet and greet section for the winnie the pooh characters and right beyond that is this shop. You can buy your normal items like clothes, toys and pins however in this shop you'll find some treats that are worth every penny!

After grabbing their autographs run over and check out the desserts.  If your lucky you'll get to see some of those desserts being made.

These are chocolate covered marshmallows getting the Disney treatment!

Yes that's right ....those are tigger marshmallows on a stick!  The lady in front of me said that those are dipped in caramel first, then chocolate with some orange sprinkles and chocolate for the stripes. OMG Yummy!

Chocolate covered strawberries with nuts.

Mickey Pecan Nut Clusters and Mickey Almond Nut Clusters.  Those look amazing!

For those that just love rice crispy treats look no further! They have HUGE bars of them waiting for you!

If you prefer a cookie there are plenty of those to pick from too!

 Mickey and Minnie sugar cookies!

Above:  At Disney you can even find sugar free desserts!  Here they have a sugar free Pecan Caramel Pattie or you can get a sugar free chocolate covered pretzel. 

My favorite at this shop by far are the chocolate covered apples. Everyone has seen a chocolate covered apple but you've never seen chocolate covered apples like this! Disney really brings out the magic here!

Congrats to the class of 2011

Hunny pots and Jack!

Can't forget about mickey and minnie! 

The World of Color Apple! Even at that price it's worth every penny!

We got a chance to go to a meet and greet breakfast with some great characters. Of course I searched for desserts there too and found some!

Lemon Bars

 Chocolate Chip, oatmeal raisin, pound cake, lemon bar and chocolate rice crispy treats.

 Bread pudding and Fruit cobbler.

Every where you turn in the Disneyland park you can find a great dessert!  We had a blast walking the park, going on rides and eating desserts!

Disneyland In The Kitchen!

Of course Disneyland doesn't fall short on their desserts however I thought this time around I'd show you some other items you can use for desserts!  We found some great items over in California Adventure and just wanted to buy everything!   Check out these fun and cute kitchen items!

Look at these great pop makers! Not only do you get a great treat but you get Mickey Mouse along with it!

 Now of course you can't forget those items you need to put your desserts in! These cups would be great for shaved ice, ice cream, pudding and pretty much any dessert you can think of!

I couldn't pass these up! Mickey Mouse head, hand and a star cookie cutters!  These are about 3 inches big and will make the perfect little cookies for my kids and friends!

Of course what's a kitchen without measuring cups?
  I just love the little pictures on each cup! This just makes baking even more fun!!!!

Of course along with those cups you need the measuring spoons to match!

 You'll also need all the other utensils to go along with your measuring cups & spoons!  How cute are those handles? I just love all these items!

Now once your done baking you need these fancy pot holders to remove those cute cupcakes and other items from the oven!

Disneyland makes sure that you go all out in your kitchen with the fantasy of Disney!  It's like taking home a part of Disneyland with you.  

I have to admit they did have other items in the store. Like a silicone baking pan, silicone mini mickey's, timers, salt and pepper shakers and cute aprons however the people working there sort of gave me a strange look after I took a few pictures! With that I paid for my cookie cutters and got out of there! I love all these items and you have to go there to get your hands on some before their all gone!!

Disneyland Desserts!

Today we walked the Disneyland park in search of some desserts that would make you want another one right after you finished the first one!  Well, we found two desserts that did just that! While waiting for my son to go through the Jedi Training I slipped off to get some chocolate mousse.

This wasn't just mousse.  They layered chocolate sauce on the bottom, mousse, oreo crumble, whipped cream, more mousse topped off with a cute mickey mouse chocolate face. 
We couldn't stop eating this dessert! It was amazing!
Look at that chocolate mickey mouse! 

We walked the park some more and found some on the go treats that you could pick up right away.  Sometimes you just want to grab a treat on the run and Disneyland has plenty of those types of treats to buy. You'll find these great fast treats all over the park in their wonderful shops. 

They also have items you can pick up for a friend that are wrapped in these great boxes! Perhaps you just want to sneak one back to the hotel room for a midnight snack...... ;-)


Night time came fast and we settled in over at a cafe in the New Orleans section.  We ordered a plate of beignets!  What's a beignet? It's a pastry made from deep fried dough and dusted with confectioner's sugar. Extremely similar to the Italian zeppole! 

Look at this!  Mickey Mouse shaped beignets!  They had this creme brulee to dip it in.

The other side had a grape jelly to dip into.

Just amazing! 

We just couldn't get enough of these desserts today! Disneyland sure does do dessert right!

Treats at Disneyland!

Disneyland was crowded today! However, we didn't allow that to stop us from having fun or finding some great desserts!  We saw plenty of people with cotton candy and popcorn today.  Many had frozen lemon aid to drink but we were searching for a cute little treat!  We finally found one when we sat down for lunch!

    Lunch today was at the Village Haus. Located right next to the Tangled house! 
This cute little place offered up some decent burgers and pizza.

Check out this great picture we saw in the Village Haus.  Besides that great picture catching my eye this amazing cupcake (pictured below) was calling my name!

This is a Black Forrest Cherry Cupcake.  Look at that chocolate on top!  

The cream on top with the cherry finished off the appeal of this cupcake!

It didn't take us long to cut this cupcake open!  There were these amazing cherries inside the cupcake! They really didn't skip on this one. There were lots of cherries, tons of whip cream and all the chocolate you could want in a cupcake! This was one tasty treat!

Next up we stopped in the New Orleans section of Disneyland to grab some dinner. Since it was so late we just grabbed some dinner but I did happen to snap a shot of some desserts they offered.

Above:  This is a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse. I might have to go
back tomorrow and try this one! Looked really good.

Above:  Here we have an Apple Strudel.  I love apples so I might go back 
and get one of these too!

Disney sure does know how to serve up some yummy treats!  On our way out I saw some amazing desserts that we're going to get our hands on tomorrow!  Stay tuned for more amazing desserts! Straight from the happiest place on earth!
