We can’t talk about celebrating the Disneyland Diamond Anniversary without talking about the famous S’Mores Bake at Big Thunder Ranch. I mean, if Magic Kingdom’s iconic sweet treat is the Dole Whip, then Disneyland’s has to be the S’Mores Bake.
While it may look like a simple brownie with a whole mess of stuff related to S’Mores is crammed on the top, in reality it’s the perfect warm dessert, made to be eaten with a spoon straight out of the container it’s baked in. I’m talking family-style dessert yumminess. It’s ooey, gooey, loaded with chocolate, but it still has that signature cinnamon crunch that makes a S’More a S’more.
The fact that it’s as easy to make as it is to eat means that not only will I be making this a lot, but you have no excuse to not be making this either. And really, who doesn’t want to make something that tastes like summertime and reminds you of Disneyland?
