Happy Halloween! I hope you brought your sweet tooth because today I’m covering the best candy (and candy-themed) treats at Walt Disney World!
Milky Way Sundae, Beaches and Cream
Ah, the Milky Way, filled with caramel and nougat. What is a nougat? I’m not quite sure, but it’s delicious. A very popular candy come Halloween, Beaches and Cream at Disney’s Beach Club is creating its very own sundae named after the chocolate bar.
Beaches and Cream combines three scoops of vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, caramel and whipped cream, then tops it with dark and white chocolate shavings. The colossal sundae may not be as popular as the No Way Jose or Kitchen Sink, but it’s the perfect way to pay homage to your favorite candy.
Butterfinger Cupcake, Starring Rolls
Cupcakes are one of the most popular snacks at Walt Disney World. The “cupcake boom” hit sometime in 2009 and it’s grown exponentially since. With seasonal offerings like the Caramel Apple Cupcake at Contempo Cafe, to the Gingerbread Cupcake during Christmas, the cupcake revolution at Disney has remained strong the past few years and continues to grow.
Leading the revolution was the Butterfinger Cupcake, a gigantic chocolate cupcake is covered with a mound of vanilla icing, which is then dipped in chocolate and coated with a Butterfinger topping. Once you crack the surface, you’ll find a rich chocolate filling. The velvety chocolate filling, plus the spongy, moist chocolate cake, the billowy light vanilla buttercream, then the chocolate “shell” and crunchy Butterfinger combine for the perfect bite.
As someone who grew up on The Simpsons and is an absolute peanut butter junkie, this baby really hits the spot!
Candy Apple, Most Disney Snack Locations
Most houses aren’t giving out candy apples to trick-or-treaters, but nothing screams “autumn” more than a crisp apple covered in rich caramel. A candy apple is the perfect way to fill your sweet tooth (or lose it!)
Similar to the cupcakes, Disney has really expanded its candy apples, offering different flavors, shapes and sizes. The Cast Members are Frankenstein-esque, mixing different flavors and combinations to create a monstrous treat. While Disney certainly makes your typical run-of-the-mill caramel apples, it also offers seasonal specialties and apples decorated like your favorite Disney character. During Christmas, apples will be decorated with Santa hats. During Halloween, look for ghosts and Mickey Jack-O-Lanterns, covered with orange sugar and topped with marshmallow Mickey ears.
Unlike most candy apples, these aren’t quite as hard to eat. Disney uses a softer caramel on the apples, making them easy to bite and chew. Disney will slice your caramel apple if you wish, making it much easier to munch on and share.
Caramel Corn, Karamel Kuche
Speaking of caramel, let’s head over to Karamel Kuche in EPCOT’s Germany Pavilion. Again, I’m not sure how many houses are giving out caramel corn, but this treat is another that’s synonymous with fall and Halloween.
This sweet-and-salty treat is made fresh with Werther’s Caramel. Not only can you buy a fresh bag, but they offer many gift bags and tins, making it a great souvenir (or perfect for bringing home.)
Karamel Kuche is definitely a place I often “get lost in.” The smell draws me in, then I usually sit and stare at the creations before finally making my decision.
