Chocolate Candy Cane Pretzels

Chocolate Candy Cane Pretzels

I was not going to do neighbour gifts last year.  I had decided to try and simplify my gift giving and spend less, but then gifts of chocolate and baking all started slowly showing up at our door.  Naturally my husband asked what we were giving, so I had to scramble to come up with an easy and affordable last minute gift.

April 26 is National Pretzel day and today my family is celebrating with these delicious Mickey soft pretzels I baked up yesterday.  Judging by how many my husband enjoyed, I think this will definitely have to be a repeat recipe in our house.

National Waffle day is coming up on March 25 and what better way to celebrate then with Mickey Mouse shaped waffles?  If you have a traditional shaped waffler, it will work, but there is just something magical about a Mickey Shaped Waffle – especially smothered in an amazing bananas foster sauce!

Disney Inspired Treats: Tomato Basil Soup

DIsneyInspiredTreats_Tomato Basil Soup Homemade Soup Day February 4

It can get mighty chilly in Edmonton in the winter months and that has me wanting soup.  Since National Homemade Soup Day just happens to be February 4, I thought for my February Disney inspired treat I would make up a pot inspired by one of the delicious meals I had while in Disneyland Park: the Jolly Holiday Combo.  This meal of tomato basil soup and a grilled cheese sandwich is served at the Holly Jolly Bakery and is a nice change from the hot dogs, pizza, French fries and other sugar laden goodies we ate way too much of throughout the park.  It might not fit most the standard definition of a “treat”, but it is a definite step up from the can of tomato soup I usually heat up on the stove.

Disney Inspired Treats : Churro Popcorn

Disney Inspired Treats_Churro Popcorn National Popcorn Day January 19

When doing my research for our Disneyland trip 2 years ago, it was hard not to become completely sidetracked by the pictures and reviews of all the amazing foods Disney has to offer in their parks.  There are blogs dedicated solely to sharing the world of Disney eats and one could easily spend a large portion of their time in the parks hunting down and enjoying a variety of sweet and savoury treats plus fine dining meals.
