I have to say – I absolutely LOVE the food at Walt Disney World. Now, I know I have said this a million times before, but I don’t care – as it bears repeating – they have some of the best food in the entire world. Seriously – they have it all – from the amazing cuisines from other countries available at Epcot’s World Showcase (Moroccan, Mexican, Japanese – just to name a few!), to the 5 course meals at Victoria And Albert’s, to the amazing snacks available all over the Parks and Resorts – it’s all amazing – truly a foodie’s paradise!
And how does a true Disney Foodie beat the “post Disney blues”? Why, by recreating their favorite Disney Dishes at home, of course! Personally, I am a baker – I love desserts, love baking them, eating them, sharing them with friends and family – and so Disney DIY Desserts are right up my alley!
Check out these amazing recipes that bring that Disney Magic home – in Dessert form!
Perfect for summer – this S’mores bake puts everything you love about this campfire treat into one pan (no fire required!)
1 (10.5-ounce) box fudge brownie mix
1 (1-pound) bag large marshmallows
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons hot fudge sauce, warmed
8 graham crackers
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9×13 cake pan with cooking spray. Prepare brownie batter per package directions and pour into prepared cake pan. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it.
2. Turn oven to broil.
3. Place marshmallows over brownies. Leaving oven door ajar, place marshmallow-topped brownies under broiler 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown, watching very closely to avoid burning.
4. Drizzle hot fudge sauce over top of toasted marshmallows.
5. Take half of the graham crackers and break them into planks; crush other half of graham crackers into crumbs.
6. Sprinkle crushed graham crackers over top of toasted marshmallows, and place graham cracker planks randomly into toasted marshmallows. Serve immediately.
Another perfect summertime recipe – strawberry season is in full effect – which makes for a PERFECT pie!
