What would brighten your day more than some scrumptious Disney inspired desserts? You might not be spending your day at the park, but you can still enjoy the company of Mickey Mouse. Here are some of the most delicious Disney inspired desserts that you shouldn't have any trouble making:
1. Mickey Cupcakes
Cones don't have to be restricted to only holding onto ice cream. You can bake cupcakes in there, as well. This is one of the adorable Disney inspired desserts that will impress anyone who's lucky enough to take a bite.
2 dozen flat-bottomed wafer ice cream cones
Cupcake tins (enough to total 24 cups)
Batch of chocolate cake batter
48 milk or dark chocolate discs (about 1-inch wide)
Flower-shape candy cupcake decorations
Place cones in cupcake tin, and crumple aluminum foil around edges to keep them in place. Divide batter among the cones, filling each one halfway. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool, and then frost the cake tops. Place chocolate disks into cupcake.
2. Mickey Mouse Cheerios Treats
Why not turn your cereal into an after-dinner treat? All you have to do is give up a few handfuls of your box of Cheerios. It's a sacrifice you'll be happy you made.
Bag of mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons of margarine
5 cups of Cheerios
Put marshmallows and margarine in microwave for 1 minute. Stir, and return to microwave for 1 minute. Mix with cheerios, and place on baking pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then cut out desired shapes. Return to freezer for 15 minutes while melting Chocolate Candiquik. Spoon chocolate onto shapes, and add sprinkles.
3. Caramel Apples
Autumn is the perfect season for caramel apples, so don't let the months fly by without getting your hands on one. Instead of dipping them in caramel and stopping there, you can decorate them with your favorite treats. It'll make you feel like you're sitting in the Disney park.
4 large Granny Smith apples
5-6 c. caramels (or appx. 1 bag Kraft Caramel bits--see above)
7-8 cinnamon graham crackers (or 1 prepared pie crust)
1 1/2 lbs. melting chocolates (or chocolate chips)
cinnamon and sugar, to taste (appx 2 Tbsp sugar + 1/8 tsp. cinnamon)
8 large marshmallows
Refrigerate apples until cold. Melt caramel until melted. Place sticks into the top of each apple and dip in caramel until fully coated. Place on wax paper and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Blend graham crackers in blender. Melt chocolate in microwave and dip apple inside. Roll in graham cracker crumbs. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll each marshmallow in chocolate and place on apple for ears. Hold in place until set.
4. Mickey Mouse Oreos
This is simple to make, but it will have a big impact on your guests. Everybody will be rushing to take a bite out of your famous cookies that you didn't even have to bake yourself.
Red Chocolate Melts
Melt chocolate in microwave. Dip full sized oreo into the mixture halfway. Set on wax paper and put two white sprinkles on them. Cool in fridge for 15 minutes. Attach two mini oreos with the mixture.
It's rare to see pretzels dressed up all fancy, which is why these are a special sight. Don't worry, because they taste just as amazing as they look.
Red candy melts
Black candy melts
White candy melts
Melt candy in microwave. Dip the top portion into black melts. Place on cookie sheet, and let harden. Dip the bottom portion into red melts. Let harden. Place melted white candy into piping bag to decorate pretzels.
6. Easy Peasy Cupcakes
If you're in a rush, but want to look like you put a lot of work into your baking, make these cupcakes. You don't even have to put together the batter yourself. Simply buy a container from the store and decorate them however you wish.
Batch of pre-baked vanilla cupcakes
Chocolate sandwich cookies, regular size and mini size
Frost the cupcakes. Split cookies into halves. Press cookies into frosting. Place mini cookies against larger cookie.
7. Cake Pops
There's nothing easier than whipping up these cake pops. As long as you know how to bake a cake, you're halfway there. The only other thing you need is a few ice cream spoons, and you're golden!
Ice Cream Spoons
Make batter as directed on box, bake, and let cool. Use a mickey mouse cookie cutter to cut cake, or use a knife to create the design. Push in wooden ice cream spoons. Place in freezer for 10 minutes. Dip in melted chocolate if desired.
