Sugar and spice, and everything nice … that’s what Valentine’s Day is made for! It doesn’t matter if you’re single or paired up, at Disney Springs, there’s a sweet seasonal treat for every taste bud. I had a tough time narrowing down my list of favorites to just five, but below are some of the top stops I strongly suggest this Valentine’s Day (and in many cases, through the month of February!), plus my recommendation on what to try:
Amorette’s Patisserie: The new Enchanted Rose Cake was inspired by “Beauty and the Beast” and while it’s as beautiful as Belle, it’s just as complex, too. This decadent dome features layers of lemon chiffon cake, white chocolate mousse, raspberry pâté de fruit jelly and Italian buttercream. It’s a masterpiece, just like the film!
D-Luxe Burger: I’ve already shared details on the new “Duo Meals,” debuting this month, so allow me to also tout the latest seasonal shake. A liquid take on the chocolate-covered strawberry, this perfectly blended beverage is a creamy, dreamy delight. (You could share it with your better half … but after one sip, you may not want to!)
Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC: When you or your love lusts after a Gluten-free, Vegan Valentine bite, anything on the menu will fit the bill. Though I don’t have any allergies, I’ve been known to indulge at this fan-favorite, where heart-shaped morsels are currently available from the pastry case.
The Ganachery: If love is a fairy-tale, then these champagne-flavored chocolates are the happy ending we all dream of. Created in honor of the 25th anniversary of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings, these new chocolates celebrate true love. My favorite touch? The Cinderella coach stamped (in edible chocolate) on each melt-in-your-mouth morsel.
Sprinkles Cupcakes: The Raspberry Chocolate Chip Cupcake is a limited-time temptation that pairs Belgian dark chocolate cake with luscious raspberry frosting and chocolate chips. If one cupcake simply isn’t enough, design your own box or select from one of their carefully curated “sweetheart” dozens.
With so many options, the list could go on … so if I’ve missed your favorite, let me know in the comments below – there’s still time for me to fit in a few more tastes!
