When the holidays come to Disneyland Resort, there also comes an extensive list of delicious, festive food. Festival of Holidays at Disney California Adventure gives Guests fun dishes like Stuffing Mac and Cheese and Impossible Queso Fundido and the classic Peppermint Stick Ice Cream. Over at Disneyland Park, Guests can indulge in a scrumptious Thanksgiving sandwich with homemade chips and a pumpkin-spice cream cheese pretzel.
The holidays are all about indulgence and in addition to the merry snacks and meals, Disney has created a number of sweet treats that can be purchased throughout the Resort.
All the treats we are going to take a look at can be purchased at the following locations:
- Candy Palace
- Candy Kitchen
- Honey Spot in Pooh Corner
Disney California Adventure Park
- Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff
- Trolley Treats
- Marceline’s Confectionery
Let’s take a look at the incredible treats Disney has cooked up for this holiday season!
While Disney is known for a number of sweet treats — who can resist a Dole Whip — one special treat stands near the top of the list — the candy apple. Disney always offers a variety of candy apples, from ones that look like Mickey and Minnie Mouse to themed ones like Maleficent for Halloween.
In the spirit of the holidays, Disney has brought back the popular Snowflake Apple. The snowflake apple is a granny smith apple that is first dipped in caramel and then in white chocolate. After that, it is covered in beautiful blue sanding sugar. From there, the talented Disney candy makers hand-decorate each one with a gorgeous, white chocolate snowflake.
Peppermint Marshmallow Pop
Disney’s homemade marshmallow pops always have that Disney flair because they are shaped just like Mickey’s head! This marshmallow pop is dipped in luxurious dark chocolate and then rolled in crushed peppermint.
Snowflake Cake Pop
Disney typically offers a number of delicious cake pops that come in vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet flavors. For this holiday season, Disney has created a smaller, cake pop version of the snowflake apple. The snowflake cake pop will only be made of chocolate cake. The cake pop is then dipped in white chocolate and covered in sanding sugar. The pop is then hand-decorated to make the snowflake and two round chocolate pieces make Mickey’s ears.
Traditionally, Disneyland Guests can always purchase a variety of Mickey Crispies. Sometimes they are covered in M&Ms or Reese’s Pieces, and sometimes they are designed to look like Disney characters. For this Christmas season, Disney has created the gingerbread crispy. This crisped rice treat is shaped like Mickey’s head, where the front has been covered in lighter brown chocolate. The treat is then hand-decorated with Christmas colors to look like a classic gingerbread man.
Homemade Fudge – Peppermint and Pumpkin
Even though peppermint is traditionally the flavor of the season, Disney knows that not everyone wants peppermint everything. So, for the holidays, Disney is offering two types of delicious, homemade fudge. The first is a chocolate peppermint fudge that is covered in festive red and green sprinkles.
For pumpkin spice lovers, Disney is offering pumpkin fudge that tastes just as magical as it sounds. The fudge looks just like it came from pumpkin pie and is perfectly spiced with warm flavors like cinnamon and nutmeg.
Churro Marshmallow Pop
When Disneyland introduced Churro toffee, it completely changed the treat game at the Happiest Place on Earth. Guests could not get enough of the white chocolate toffee covered in cinnamon sugar. From there, Disney has brought in a number of churro-flavored treats like the Churro toffee cold brew and now, the churro marshmallow wand.
This Mickey-shaped marshmallow is dipped in white chocolate and then coated in cinnamon sugar.
That is quite a list. And Disneyland has also brought back its incredibly popular homemade candy canes. You can read all about Disneyland’s candy canes and how you can try to purchase them here.
What makes all of these gorgeous and delicious treats even better? The fact that all of the locations carrying these holiday sweets offer mobile ordering, so you can order your apple and marshmallow wand (or one of everything, we don’t judge) in the morning and pick it up later in the day!
