I have a new Disneyland Park recipe to share with you today- it’s been a while! I was out of my recipe sheets from City Hall at Disneyland and then contributor Vy sent me a magical surprise in the mail – the cookbook “Kitchen Magic with Mickey: Favorite Recipes from the Disney Parks and Cruise Ships”! I flipped through it to find all of the Disneyland Resort recipes first and found the perfect one to start off with – from the Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue at Disneyland Park, I give you the S’mores Bake!
S’mores Bake (Disneyland Park Recipe)
- 1 (10 1/2 oz.) box fudge brownie mix
- 1 (1 pound) bag large marshmallows
- 1/4 cup, plus 2 tbsp. hot fudge sauce, warmed
- 8 graham crackers
Instructions: (Serves 8)
- Preheat oven t0 375 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch cake pan with cooking spray. Prepare brownie batter per package directions and pour into prepared cake pan. Bake 20-22 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it.
- Turn oven to broil.
- Put marshmallows on top of brownies. Place marshmallow-topped brownies under broiler 1 1/2-2 minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown, leaving oven door ajar and watching very closely to avoid burning.
- Drizzle hot fudge sauce over top of toasted marshmallows.
- Take half of the graham crackers and break them into planks; crush other half of graham crackers into crumbs.
- Sprinkle crushed graham crackers over top of toasted marshmallows, and place graham crackers planks randomly into toasted marshmallows.
- Serve immediately.
I decided to not follow the directions a couple of times. I basically skipped the whole first direction and just made the brownies per the directions on teh box, and also I followed the cookbook picture instead of the directions and use an oval baking dish, so I think my brownies may not have been completely done in the middle, but it was still good. It is best served immediately, but wasn’t so bad the next day either 😉
Outcome & Opinion:
I picked this recipe to test out for two reasons – a) it just looked like was a dessert worthy of a birthday dinner, b) it was SO easy! Did you see how there are only FOUR ingredients! Well, I guess you need eggs or oil or whatever the brownie mix calls for – but really, could this by any easier?! It came delicious, fudgy, rich, and very s’more-like. The toasted marshmallows made it.
BONUS – Cookbook Review:
“Kitchen Magic with Mickey” is a cook/baker/Disneyland-lover’s dream come true! It includes recipes from all of the Disney Resorts Theme Parks (North American only), Disney Hotels, Downtown Disney restaurants, Disney Vacation Club Resorts (like Aulani), and the Disney Cruise Line! The book is broken into six categories: Starters, Soups & Salads, Vegetables & Grains, Meat & Poultry, Seafood, Desserts & Sweets. There appears to be a good mix of short and simple recipes with more difficult recipes that include longer ingredient and instruction lists. Oh, and the pictures will make you drool! I love this cookbook so much, and I can’t wait to make another recipe from it. Thanks so much Vy!
