Make Your Holiday List And Check It Twice Because Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Is Nice!!

  It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And I have the inside scoop for you all on the BEST Christmas party in central Florida, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. On select nights November through December, celebrate the most magical time of the year with Mickey and friends in the most memorable way! Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is definitely the most decorated Christmas event I have EVER been to! The littles and I were so excited to venture into the Magic Kingdom and explore all of the special event offerings.     Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party requires a special event ticket, in which adult prices start at $89.00 each and $84.00 per child. This special event is worth every penny! There are only a limited number of tickets sold, which means the park rides have very little lines or waits. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party allows attendants to gain entrance to the Magic Kingdom beginning at 4:30 pm. It is at this time, you are guided down the Merry Christmas path to enjoy many decorations, photo opportunities, and a giant Santa cookie!       Then you are off and get to enjoy the park. The excitement builds when you slowly see the daily-attendance, Disney guests exit the park and you get to stay and play.     Be sure to tell the kiddos to save up their allowance. Disney always goes all out on their Holiday hats, necklaces, and collectibles.           Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is an absolute delight. Not only do you get to enjoy the over-the-top Disney Christmas decorations, music, lights, and shows, but also there are dessert stations!!!! Yes, did you hear me? Seasonal dessert stations are located throughout the park! From Ginger Molasses Cookies paired with Eggnog to Salted Snowman Hot Pretzels with Blue Raspberry Sno-Cones, you can find an array of delectable, Holiday desserts your entire visit.             As you know, I am a HUGE foodie and the concept of visiting different dessert stations brought me to my knees! I no longer was interested in the 5 minute wait for Thunder Mountain Railroad or Space Mountain, but rather, where...

    Thanksgiving is just around the corner. That means lots of planning, cleaning, and looking for new ideas to keep the little ladies busy, while I am scrambling to get our huge family, holiday dinner on the table.     I have been fortunate to work with Little Debbie as their brand ambassador, which has allowed me to really get creative using their products. I have had the pleasure of tasting all of Little Debbie’s amazing Fall snacks and treats. My family and I are particularly fond of the Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes. I wanted to incorporate these versatile and tasty little cakes into a fun and interactive dessert for our Thanksgiving table.     Whenever I can get my little ones hands on a helpful activity to share in the dinner preps, I absolutely get those kids to work. Armed with Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes, I came up with a Sweet Turkey Dessert Centerpiece. This adorable little turkey has feathers made of Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes, Little Debbie Pumpkin Spice Rolls, and colored marshmallows. Not only is this sweet turkey cute and fun to look at while indulging in a huge dinner, but also the perfectly sweet ending kids of all ages will look forward to demolishing.     Sweet Turkey Dessert Centerpiece Supplies: 3 boxes of Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes (any flavors) 3 empty Little Debbie Fall Party Cake boxes 1 bag of standard size marshmallows Orange, red and yellow food coloring Clean, food safe paint brush Gold food coloring spray (optional available at craft store) 3 bags of dried beans or rice (act as weights for the empty boxes) Hot glue gun with glue sticks Small to medium size Styrofoam pumpkin (from a dollar store or craft store) Bamboo skewers Candy corn Fruit leather (4 serving rolls) Candy eyes Plastic pilgrim hat (optional from craft store)  ...

Little Debbie Pumpkin Patch Trifle

  Celebrate Fall with a cute and tasty Little Debbie Pumpkin Patch Trifle. My table is set and ready to welcome my guests to the annual Fall party. I love all things pumpkin and this easy throw-it-together dessert will take no time for you to whip up.     I like desserts that can be made ahead of time, I always seem to be running on empty by the time dessert rolls around. Thanks to Little Debbie’s Fall inspired treats, I was able to develop a cute, Fall themed trifle that makes everyone giddy with excitement.     This scrumptious layered Fall dessert has moist, vanilla Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes followed by cold and creamy, candy corn colored puddings, a layer of tender chocolate cake and decorated with Little Debbie Pumpkin Brownies to make the cutest pumpkin patch!     Pumpkin Patch Trifle Ingredients: 1 box of Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes, Vanilla 1 box of Little Debbie Pumpkin Brownies 1 box of chocolate cake mix, prepared according to directions on box 2 boxes of vanilla instant pudding mix 1 box of white chocolate instant pudding mix 6 cups of milk (for pudding) orange and yellow food coloring bamboo skewers to hold pumpkins in place pumpkin candy Fall colored sprinkles     Directions: Prepare boxed cake mix according to the package directions. Bake cake in a 9×13 pan and allow to cool. Crumble cake using a fork and set aside. Prepare instant puddings in 3 different bowls. 1 box of instant pudding mixed with 2 cups of cold milk and set aside to firm up. Leave white chocolate pudding alone and set to the side (this will stay white). Color each of the vanilla puddings, place a fair amount of yellow food coloring in one bowl of vanilla pudding and orange food coloring in the other. Mix each of the puddings well. In a large trifle bowl, crumble the entire box of Little Debbie Fall Party Cakes. Next, pour the yellow pudding on top of the crumbled, vanilla Fall Party Cakes. Followed by a layer of the orange pudding and then white (this should resemble candy corn). For the top layer of the trifle, crumble the baked chocolate cake. Be sure to cover...
