Cooking up the Magic – Diseny Parks – Churro Bites

Now that the World is experiencing a global pandemic vacation plans had to be cancelled, put on hold or rescheduled. Disney did something new and added something called Disney Magic Moments to their Disney Parks Blog.  Disney calls it a daily dose of pixiedust. I call it a virtual dream come true. My favorte category is their Cooking Up The Magic.

Gather your immediate family while you are social distancing and start baking. Yes Disney has been releasing some of their fan favorite recipies to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Today I am sharing one of Disney’s classic snack options, Chrurro Bites.

I hope everyone enjoyed the recipe from Disney’s Cooking Up The Magic at Home section from #DisneyMagicMoments. I can not wait to try them at home. Looking forward to when we can be back enjoying the Disney Parks. At least we can get a little tase of the Magic from home until then.
