Fresh, hot corn dogs – perfect for a cookout.

10| Matterhorn Macaroons
Shannon from Rumbly in my Tumbly says that coming up with a recipe for Matterhorn Macaroons has been a “labor of love” since it didn’t come instantly. These macaroons are found on Main Street at Disneyland’s Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. Try for yourself and see how they taste!
11| Apple Pie Caramel Apples
It’s like eating apple pie on a stick – except you can tell yourself it’s “healthy” alternative to a slice of pie since there’s an apple underneath! Erica from Favorite Family Recipes has reproduced Disneyland’s Apple Pie Caramel Apples. They even look cute and would be a festive dessert for Halloween or even Thanksgiving.
12| Snickerdoodle Cookies
Last, but not least, are Disneyland’s Snickerdoodle Cookies from Six Sisters’ Stuff. If you’re not ambitious to try some of the aforementioned recipes, cookies are always a safe way to go. You may already have some of the ingredients in your cupboards and cookies can easily be stored to enjoy a taste of Disneyland at a later date.
