There are so many delicious treats you could sample at Taste of EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays. However, we want to direct your attention to one booth in particular that you won’t want to miss. It’s Holiday Hearth, located inside the World Showplace.
The hearth has some of the sweetest offerings at the festival. Hot cocoa and cookies will try to entice you, but perhaps you’ll try something a bit out-of-the-ordinary this year. Why not a Salted Caramel Spaceship Earth Cookie? Two cookies sandwich a salted caramel filling between them, and are covered with a sparkly silver sugar coating on top to give the appearance of Epcot’s iconic Spaceship Earth. It’s a crowd-pleaser, but definitely sugary, and easily transportable. At $5.25 it’s a good item to put at the top of your bucket list!
The Red Velvet Mini Bundt Cake will be a memorable treat this year! It’s elegant in appearance and doesn’t skimp on flavor. The little hole in the center doesn’t go to waste either, as it serves as more of a vessel for a dollop of cream cheese frosting. Yum! At $4.00 it’s a tasty and economical option.
The third star of the booth (though definitely not the least of these) is the Gingerbread Milkshake. A rich little number, topped with a cute and crunchy gingerbread man, this one can be made alcoholic as well. The $11 version has whipped cream vodka, but sans-alcohol will bring the total down to $4.50. Something for mom and dad, something for the kids. Just remember which is which.
Other options at Holiday Hearth include Snowball Cookies, Peppermint Bark, and Stollen. Be sure to check it out as you make the rounds at the 2020 Festival of the Holidays!
