In these times of social distancing, we thought it would be great to share some things that have brought happiness and joy to our home life. One of those things is trying to recreate our favorite Disney snacks and dishes at home! Over the years we have created several videos on making these treats at home, here are some of our most memorable ones!
1. Dole Whip and Churros
The Dole Whip turned out to be a lot easier to make than we thought it would be! It is basically just a few ingredients! We used the recipe over at https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/201… which turned out to be fairly spot on! For the churros we found an official Disney recipe on the Disney Parks Blog here: https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo… This recipe sounds hard, but actually turned out to be fairly easy to do!
2. Mickey Pretzles and Premium Bars
The Mickey shaped pretzels turned out to be a lot harder to make than we thought it would be! It is basically just a few ingredients! We used the recipe over at https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/242… For the Mickey Premium Bars we just kinda winged it and used vanilla ice cream, magic shell and craft sticks! All in all we had a really fun night trying to replicate these iconic Mickey shaped snacks!
3. Cheeseburger Eggrolls
We took a few recipes and mashed them together and added some things to make it our own. We really really liked the outcome, they tasted just like the real Disney eggrolls. We were so excited! We hope you liked the vid and we’ll see you tomorrow with a new vid! Ingredients: 1lb. ground beef 1/2 white onion diced 1/2 cup dill pickle diced 4oz. velveeta cheese 1 slice sharp cheddar cheese 1-2 TBSP yellow mustard couple shakes of Worcestershire sauce 1 package eggroll wrappers 1 cup vegetable oil for frying salt and pepper to taste The recipe below is from allrecipes.com but I changed the ingredients that we added in our version. Place the ground beef and onion in a skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir for about 10 minutes, breaking up the beef into crumbles as it cooks. Drain the meat and put it back in the pan and add the velveeta cheese. Then transfer to a bowl. Stir in the chopped pickles, Worcestershire sauce and mustard, and mix together well. We lined our counter with parchment paper. Place a bowl of water next to your work surface. Remove an egg roll wrapper from the stack, and cover the remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel to prevent them from drying out. Place the wrapper on the work surface with a corner facing towards you. Place about 1/4 cup of filling on the wrapper, and fold the top corner down over the filling. Tightly roll the wrapper into a cylinder, tucking in the corners as you roll, until the wrapper completely encloses the filling. Moisten the last corner with a little water, and finish wrapping so the moistened corner tightly seals to the egg roll, and there are no gaps to let the filling leak out. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan or deep fryer until a thermometer registers 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Carefully place 2 or 3 egg rolls at a time into the hot oil, and fry for about 4 or 5 minutes, turning the egg rolls over once, until golden brown. Remove the egg rolls with a tongs, and drain on paper towels.
4. ‘Ohana Bread Pudding
This started with making the Ohana Pineapple Coconut Bread and then onto the bread pudding part. It was very involved and it took literally 7 hours but it was SO GOOD. We don’t recommend you try this one at home, only because it was so time consuming, but if you do, let us know what you thought! We really did like it a lot, it came out pretty deliciously.
