7 Theme Park Sweet Treats You Need in Your Life This Halloween
These treats are so scarily delicious that you may forget to ride the rides at these theme parks.
For all kinds of deliciousness this season – we’re talking way beyond fun-size Snickers and Hershey bars – head to a theme park Halloween celebration near you. With colorful and creative sugar explosions aplenty, here are the theme park treats you absolutely need in your life (and on your Instagram) this Halloween season.
Not-So-Poison Apple Cupcake
You may not find the Wicked Queen at Main Street Bakery at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, but you will find the oh-so-tempting (and oh-so-deliciously-oversized) Not-So-Poison Apple Cupcake. This tantalizing apple-cinnamon cupcake is topped with crunchy pecan pralines, then slathered in a buttercream frosting and topped with crunchy candy apple shell pieces. The Magic Mirror had it right, this truly is the tastiest cupcake in all the land.
Candy Corn Milkshake
It’s hard to get much better than a milkshake adorned with a giant Mickey Mouse-shaped marshmallow and a massive tuft of cotton candy. Unless of course, it’s an orange-colored Candy Corn Milkshake made with soft serve candy corn ice cream. This over-the-top sugary delight is available daily at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Tomorrowland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. You’ll truly feel as though you’ve died and gone to candy corn heaven.
Ghostly Bundt Cake
Stop in the Gourmet Coffee Hut just inside the park at Knott’s Berry Farm in Southern California for an adorable Ghostly Bundt Cake, which by the way pairs nicely with a latte (since you’re already in the coffee shop). These mini bundt cakes are pumpkin-flavored and topped with a sugary-sweet white icing before the face is added on with milk chocolate. These ghoulish treats are so spookily cute you may have a tough time gobbling them up.
Bat Wing Raspberry Sundae
At Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream at Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, get into the spirit of the season with a Bat Wing Raspberry Sundae. This delectable ice cream sundae starts with two scoops of white chocolate-raspberry swirl ice cream in a sprinkle-dipped cone bowl. The sundae is then garnished with whipped cream, sprinkles, raspberry sauce (er, splatter) and two chocolate bat wing cookies. The sundae is huge, so feel free to share, or devour the entire bowl of deliciousness on your own.
Candy Corn Funnel Cake
The deliciously dark (as in, black) Candy Corn Funnel Cake at Knott’s Berry Farm comes topped with pumpkin-colored icing, vanilla ice cream, tasty candy corns, and sprinkles. Through Halloween, you’ll find this decadent treat at Cable Car Kitchen near the main gate, an excellent first stop as you enter the park or final stop ahead of your drive home. Disneyland may be known for its churros, but Knott’s Berry Farm makes out-of-this-world funnel cakes, so don’t let the black color scare you away from this treat.
Maleficent Dessert Cone
At last, a sugary Halloween-themed treat truly made for one. The refreshing Maleficent Dessert Cone is a chocolate waffle cone filled with lime-flavored soft serve topped with chocolate Maleficent-style horns and purple sugar. You’ll find this sweet delight at Storybook Treats in Fantasyland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The adorable cone looks petite, as if you can devour it all in two bites, but you may find yourself more concerned with whether you want to eat it or snap photos of this yummy concoction.
Triple Decker Extravaganza
Universal Orlando was so inspired by Netflix’s Stranger Things that they created a Halloween-themed dessert around a central character, Eleven. Or rather, around Eleven’s favorite food, waffles. The Triple Decker Extravaganza is three layers of deliciousness made up of waffles, whipped cream, chocolate chips, jelly beans and Reese’s Pieces. Universal Studios Hollywood offers a similar treat for the duration of the Halloween Horror Nights celebration, but theirs is called Eleven’s Waffle Extravaganza. Yum!
