Happy Holidays from the Grand Californian at Disneyland Resort, where the gorgeous and festive gingerbread house stands tall and where guests can pick up loads of Holiday Treats in the lobby!
The pastry chefs at the Grand Californian aren’t messing around with their holiday offerings; the list of treats is small but mighty! You’ll find classic gingerbread alongside whoopie pies and truffles. Yup: there’s something for everyone!
Crispy (Krispie!) Treats and Cake Pops are dressed to the nines for the holiday season and packaged with satin bows, making them totally stocking-worthy, if you feel like sharing.
But we can bet you won’t want to share this creative and colorful Mickey Whoopie Pie! It’s all (candy) lit up!
In between two green-colored cake pieces is a load of buttercream and holiday sprinkles. We love this design!
The Snowman Cookie is simple — but simple works when it comes to a nostalgic holiday treat! You can see a review of it on our Jolly Holiday post!
The Mickey Holiday Cookie is another cute option. He’s got chocolate-dipped ears, red icing, festive sprinkles, and a swirl of frosting that sort of mimics the edge of Santa’s hat.
The Snowflake Cookie is about as glamorous as a holiday treat can be. It’s covered from edge to edge with white and blue glittery sprinkles, with three candy snowflakes for added measure. Elsa would totally be down for this cookie.
The Peppermint Loaf Cake looks downright indulgent, covered with thick chocolate frosting and tons of sprinkles.
The Grand Californian Holiday Treats stop also offers two items that would be fantastic souvenirs, gifts, or treats for the holiday table. The Holiday Cookie Box contains a selection of beautiful cookies.
The other packaged treat is a fantastic display of chocolate artistry: it’s a 6-Piece Truffle Box where the truffles and the box they’re in are made of chocolate! The chocolate box’s top is a beautiful rendition of the gingerbread house printed on white chocolate. It’s essentially a portrait of the house made out of chocolate…covering a box of chocolates.
The chocolate box is packaged within a paper box, which itself is a lovely package. Yeah, we’re hoping for one of these under the ol’ Christmas tree this year.
In addition to the packaged treats that are ready-made for gifting (and snacking, for those of us who just can’t wait), this is also the place to get your chilly little hands on a Cookie Shot! Get your cookie shot “glass” filled with milk, chocolate milk, or liqueur.
For the holidays, they’re decorated with red and white candy cane sprinkles.
Seriously. How cool is this? A drink inside a snack. Disney, are you listening? Edible containers for all foods!
And just like that, the Grand Californian has us singing Jingle Bells and putting on our string-of-lights necklace.
Heading to Disneyland for the holidays? You’ll want to pack the ultimate accessory: the DFB’s THREE exclusive snack checklists!
Which of these treats puts you in a jolly mood? Tell us in the comments!
