Disney has been sharing Disney Park food recipes to bring some magic into our homes.  But Disney isn’t the only one who is sharing great recipes.  For a long time now, Disney fans all over have been recreating their favorite Disney food for when they can’t get to a Disney Park, Hotel, Downtown Disney, or Disney Springs.  Some Disney fans tried their hand at making copycat Disneyland Matterhorn Macaroons and it is awesome!

Disneyland’s Matterhorn Macaroon

The Matterhorn Macaroon can be found at Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe, but you need to keep your eyes peeled for them.  This sweet treat has become a popular snack for Disneyland park goers who love the flavors of toasted coconut and white chocolate.  Now we’ve got this Disney recipe so we can have them at home if they’re not available to us when we go to the parks.  Be sure to head over to @weknowdisney’s Instagram to watch the Matterhorn Macaroons get snowed on (powdered sugar or more grated white chocolate) with the sweet sounds from the Matterhorn Bobsleds attraction!

Other Disneyland Sweet Treats

Now let’s make a tour around Disneyland for some of the other goodies!  These are all recipes you can make at home, but we’re going to do it in the fashion of a foodie tasting as if we were walking through Disneyland. Following an easier path where you won’t have to double back will save you time so you can have the freedom to head over to more attractions.

Let’s head all the way to Critter Country first for a Tigger Tail from Pooh’s Corner.  Then on the way through New Orleans Square, there’s nothing more classic than the combo of a Mickey Beignet (Gluten Free Option Available) and Mint Julep from the Mint Julep Bar.  Now walk through to the front of Adventureland for everyone’s favorite, Dole Whip, from the Tiki Juice Bar.  On your way out of Disneyland, stop at an Ice Cream Cart, a Churro Cart, and Candy Palace on Main Street U.S.A., for your Mickey Ice Cream Bar, Churro, and Churro Toffee!
