During a recent adult-aged return to Disney World, I noticed that the food is surprisingly good everywhere you go. Some of the best cuisine is at the food stands. The treats change with the seasons and can only be found at certain spots in the parks — like the scrumptious waffles at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments.
After one trip to Magic Kingdom with my cousin, she bought me a Disney Mickey Mini Waffle Maker as a housewarming gift, and oh, such deliciousness has it imparted! I've since snapped up a couple of these as gifts for some of my favorite people. And now I'm gifting you with a hot tip: Right now, you can get little guy for just $15 at Amazon! Who knew?!
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
First of all, waffles and ice cream are da bomb, and we've used the Mickey Mini (it's even fun to say!) on special occasions for just such a purpose. But as someone going through Disney withdrawal, I've busted this little gem out a few times recently and tried to emulate some of the seasonal waffles on offer at the parks, like the pumpkin-spiced Mickey waffle sundae. Try this copycat recipe from mommymouseclubhouse.com. Top your waffles with fruit, Nutella, even fried chicken, and you'll transport yourself to the happiest place on earth.
Not only can you have a blast creating all different batters and toppings in the shape of everyone's favorite mouse, but this waffle maker works great! It heats up to just the right temperature, allowing for that perfect crispiness outside and soft doughy center inside. It features a red light to indicate that it's on and hot, which is an important safety feature. The waffles are mini (not to be confused with Minnie) so just the right size to stack with some toppings or make a sandwich. At times I toss in some blueberries, baking the fruit right in. With the nonstick surface, even the caramelized fruit wipes right off. What I love about it is how light and compact it is, with a handy little handle — makes for easy storage and portability. And most importantly, the waffles are so darn cute!
You don't have to take my word for it when there are over 6,200 five-star reviews. This happy customer gives us the scoop: "I honestly love this little waffle iron more than my bigger expensive one! Waffles are a fun tradition and I wanted to surprise my family with the Mickey shape. I did not coat the plates with oil or nonstick spray, since the recipe I use calls for canola oil in the batter; no worries though! Every waffle popped right out of the pan like a Magic Kingdom dream. So pleased with this product, I'm considering buying it as a gift for family members!"
