Hi everyone, it’s Kimberly from Get Away Today. I’m so excited to be on the Crafting Chicks sharing fun Disney and vacation ideas. Getting ready for a Disneyland vacation is almost as fun as going on one. We surprised our kids at Christmas with a spring time Disneyland vacation and we have had so much fun “getting ready” by watching Disney movies, playing Disney games, and making Disney recipes. Luckily, our blog, Packed with Fun, is just that, packed with fun ideas to get your family excited for an upcoming vacation. I compiled three of our most popular Disney inspired recipes. They are simple, cute, tasty, and guaranteed to get your family excited about your Disneyland vacation.
Mickey Pop Tarts
Ready made pie crust (or your favorite recipe)
Your Favorite jam
Frosting and Sprinkles (optional)
Start by taking your pie crust and cutting out an equal number of Mickey heads with a cookie cutter.
Put your favorite jam on one Mickey head at a time. Cover it with another Mickey head and use a fork to seal the edges.
Butter the tops of the Mickeys and bake them at 400 degrees in a preheated oven.
Decorate with frosting and sprinkles to add a little more flare and flavor.
It’s our version of a Character Breakfast at home!
Mickey and Minnie Oreos
Double Stuf Oreos (make sure they’re Double Stuf)
Red and/or pink melting chocolate
White decorating pearls
Start by separating your Mini Oreos and
licking scraping off the cream to make your Mickey or Minnie ears. Stick them into the top of your Double Stuf Oreos to create a Mickey head effect. Dip the bottom half of each cookie into the melted chocolate. Use red for Mickey and pink for Minnie. Then, add decorating pearls. Two pearls side by side on a red cookie make a Mickey, and a few polka-d0ts make Minnie’s dress.
We’re sure these will be a hit at your house!
Sprite or 7up
1 Packet of Grape Kool-Aid
2 c. Sugar
1 c. Water
Start by making your grape syrup by dissolving two cups sugar into one cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat. Once it’s dissolved, bring it to a boil for a few minutes, then remove the mixture from the heat and stir in one packet of grape Kool-Aid until it’s completely dissolved. Move your syrup into a container that’s good for both pouring and storage. Next, slice your limes into circles with one small slit going towards the center (see below). Add your limes to a glass to make Lime Mickey ears, then make your drink by adding some ice, soda, a little syrup and fresh lime juice to taste.
Ahhhhhh… it’s as refreshing as it is adorable.
