Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwiches from Disneyland

Tags: , , ,

Desserts

I am without a doubt a chocolate and peanut butter fanatic.  When I first devoured this treat from Disneyland a few months ago, I knew I had to go home and make my own version.  It is too good to only enjoy at Disney :)

To celebrate the first official day off of school, the boys and I celebrated at Disneyland earlier this week…one of our favorite places ever!

Here are some photos of our day (then the recipe at the end)…most of these photos are from Instagram on my Iphone.  Do you guys use this app on the Iphone?  I am in LOVE with it and use it seriously all the time!  Find me, I am under “pickypalate”…shocker, lol!

Love Main Street and boy it’s busy during the summer.

My little stinkers :)  If they wanted a treat later, they knew they had to let Mommy take some pics.  Haha.

Love the Penny Arcade.

We started on the Buzz Lightyear ride, the line usually goes pretty quick :)

Then we popped over to California Adventure.

We went on Soarin’ Over California which is my favorite ride. I could ride it all day!

Passed by this cute boy band, lol :)

Went on the new Little Mermaid ride. No joke, this line went on forever and after the ride was over, both my boys said…..that was lame! It definitely is better for girls…I loved it :)

Enjoyed some grub at the Golden Horseshoe.

Got a kick out of the silly hillbilly show :)

A nice girl took this photo of the boys and I getting ready to enjoy our bakery stop!!

Ahhh, Pooh Bakery in the corner of the park by Splash Mountain. It’s a must try if you are going to Disney!

The beloved Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich from Disneyland….let’s see how my homemade version compares….scroll down.

I was very happy with my homemade version!  You can’t tell very well in the “Disneyland” version, but there is a thin layer of chocolate between the peanut butter and graham cracker.  Mmmm :)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich…Picky Palate’s Version

  • 3 cups good quality chopped milk chocolate
  • 4 tablespoons shortening
  • 12 halved graham crackers
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter

Directions

  1. Melt chocolate and shortening over a double boiler, stirring to melt.  I use a small saucepan, boil water, reduce heat to low and place a heat proof bowl over the saucepan then add my chocolate, stirring until melted.
  2. Dip each graham cracker into chocolate and let set up on wax or parchment paper.  Stick in the freezer for a few minutes to speed this up.  Spread 2 tablespoons (or a cookie scoopful) of peanut butter over the top of each dipped graham cracker then place in the freezer for 10 more minutes.  This step is important.   While the peanut butter is freezing, remove chocolate from heat and stir, so it cools slightly and thickens up a touch. Slowly and carefully spoon melted chocolate over tops and sides of peanut butter.  This is where the patience and work comes in.  Use a small spoon working the chocolate around the edges and sides.  You’ll then use a little plastic knife to run the chocolate around the edges and clean it up a little.  Let set up, (stick back in the freezer for another 10 minutes) then with a spoon, drizzle chocolate over top to get the “lines” you see in the pictures above.  (If your chocolate is too thick at this point, set it back over the double boiler so it melts a little bit).
  3. My reviews…Definitely keep these chilled just like Disneyland does, they melt rather quickly once your fingers get on them.  It was tricky to get mine to look quite as pretty as the Disneyland ones, but with a little patience you can do it!  Have fun and keep them chilled!

    Jenny these look…amazing! Disneyland is going to be calling you asking if you can come cater their concession stands b/c your version looks better than theirs does! :)

    And the shot of you w/ your boys is just wonderful. Saw the post on Amanda’s blog the other day of you and her, Marla, and gang in NOLA and it also looked sooo fun!

    And Instagram. I am the only iphone user who doesn’t use it. I should change that, huh!

    I love everything about Disney – it’s probably my favorite place ever.

    Great job on the recipe – I love it when people recreate “special” treats/meals that you can only get one place!

    Yum! I’m thinking of a 4th of July dessert… I’m also thinking this might be great with a marshmallow with or instead of the peanut butter… I know what I’m doing this weekend.

    Wow those look so much like the Disneyland ones! Beautiful and tempting. I could probably go for one right now….although it’s only 7:30 in the morning…ha!

    I’m planning on going to Disneyland in November, so I think I will have to track down Pooh Corner and try these out. But first I’ll make these for a party we’re having so I can compare!

    Caroline says:

    I am definitely trying these! We love Disneyland so much, but we have to save for two years in order to go there! We are on our first year of saving for the next trip because I could seriously live there. I am dreaming of the Monte Cristo sandwich as I write this! I love your pictures, too. Miss you much, neighbor!

    Meredith says:

    Looks delicious! I made something like that the other day only mine had a layer of marshmallow fluff on top of the peanut butter. It was to die for.

    Thank you so much for the recipe!!! I haven’t stopped salivating since you posted the first picture of them. I’m curious what they charge for these at Disney Land??

    Christeen M. says:

    Loved the pictures! Have to look for that app. Also, I am so looking forward to trying your version of the chocolate peanut butter sandwiches as well as Disneylands’s. I have to wait for summer to end to go again as my pass is not valid during the summer months. So when August hits, I’m heading to Critter Country! Thanks for your recipes! BTW, a friend at work, her cousin is one of the hillbillies.

    I had such a blast when I went to Disneyland, but ended up spending $18 for mac n’ cheese. Not cool!
    The Soarin’ Over California ride was great, but it made me so motion sick that I had to close my eyes for the last half. hahaha So lame of me!

    mindy says:

    Had these and are my favorite too. Gonna make them today – I might add a bit of powdered sugar to the pb to thicken it up a bit.

    Heather says:

    Oh these make me want to go to disneyland even more. i’m trying to get my husband to go make a trip down there this holiday season. I’ll just make these cookies and tell him if he wants more he’s just going to have to go down there and get them himself. thanks!

    Jessica says:

    Any preferences on what brand of chocolate to use? I will definitely be making these this weekend!

  36. 36

    Oh my gosh, those sound incredible and look even better! They remind me of the chocolate covered graham crackers I’ve bought before near the cash register at Starbucks. But obviously better with peanut butter and chocolate tucked inside. :)

    Being an East coast girl, I’ve never been to Disneyland – only Disneyworld. So it’s neat to see all of your pictures from your day trip – thanks for sharing!

    Christine says:

    Yum! Looks tote delish! You are sooo lucky that you live near Disneyland!

    Your boys are beautiful :) And so are those biscuits!! Probably no better combination than chocolate and peanut butter!

  42. 42

    How fun! You’re like the Disneyland Queen. Do they recognize you there?? I love this treat- so completely decadent and perfect and Easy!

  43. 43

    I find errors in this blog a bit, but it caught my attention, after I thought I would let you know, I really like it. I like this post, and will tell my friends this site.

    It is I rarely find in the Internet as entertainment and you have something interestinghere. Your page is lovely, your graphics highlight, not to mention that you refer to, the use of relevant what you’re talking. Of course you are a in a million, good!
