Our Disneyland Trip

My daughter and I went to California during the holiday break. We love to travel and I especially love our mother/daughter trips, because we like doing the same things and she is the perfect age right now for being my travel buddy. We were lucky to have a few days in Disneyland and California Adventure!

Disney is pure magic at Christmas and of course we had to wait in line for a photo with Minnie Mouse!

My Favorite Disneyland Ride

One of my favorite rides at Disneyland is It’s a Small World! The best time is during Christmas when the lights are so beautiful and everything inside is decorated for Christmas. They sing Jingle Bells in every language and it’s adorable!!!

Minnie Mouse Cookie Pop Inspiration

I found this super cute Nemo Cake Pop at Pixar Pier in California Adventure which inspired today’s cookie pops. Since we love all things Minnie Mouse, I planned to make Valentine’s Day cookies around her. Then when I saw so many cute pops at Disneyland, the cookies turned into pops!

Keep these treats as cookies or turn into pops. Either way, anyone would love getting a Minnie Mouse Cookie this Valentine’s Day! I made the bows this time with jumbo heart sprinkles. Then I found the cutest edible polka dot heart wafers by Wilton at Michaels to place on top of the candy hearts. I think the cookies turned out super cute!

Minnie Mouse Cookie Pops are an easy Disney party dessert made with OREO cookies and free printable Valentine’s Day tags.

  • 12 Double Stuf OREO cookies
  • 6 Mini OREO cookies
  • 1/4 cup White Candy Melts
  • 1/2 cup Red Candy Melts
  • 1/2 cup Red, Pink and White Nonpareils
  • 1/4 cup Jumbo Heart Sprinkles
  • Wilton Edible Accents Hearts (optional)
  • 12 Lollipop Sticks
  • Wax Paper
  • Printable Tags (optional)
  1. Gently open and remove the filling from a handful of Mini OREO cookies with a knife.
  2. Melt white candy melts in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until candy is smooth and creamy.
  3. Make Minnie’s ears by using the melted white candy as the glue to stick the mini cookies inside of the larger cookies. Let candy dry before decorating.
  4. In a small glass bowl, melt pink candy in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until candy is smooth and creamy.
  5. Dip one half of a cookie into the melted candy, gently shake cookie to smooth any rough edges and sprinkle with red, pink and white nonpareils.
  6. Dip the tip of a lollipop stick into the melted candy, then gently hold it on the bottom of the cookie. You don’t need to press it into the cookie as it might break.
  7. Hold stick to the cookie until a bond is made, then place on a piece of wax paper to cool and harden.
  8. Add Minnie’s bow by placing a small bit of melted candy on two jumbo candy hearts. Gently stick them to the top of the cookie to form a bow.
  9. If you can find the edible polka dot heart wafers by Wilton, add them to the top of the hearts buy using melted candy as glue. This step is optional.
  10. Print the Valentine’s Day tags, trim and punch a hole in the top and bottom. After the candy has completely hardened on the cookies, slide the tag onto the lollipop stick. Wrap as gifts or display on your party table.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s day with this Chocolate Mint Pie or my favorite Shamrock Shake! I’m not joking when I say it’s addicting. This chocolate mint pie is supposed to serve eight people, but in reality… I could eat the whole thing. So does that mean it really serves one? ha!

Mickey & Minnie Mouse Christmas Cookies

Adorable No Bake Mickey & Minnie Mouse Christmas Cookies made with Oreos. Fun Disney themed holiday cookies for a party, gifts or cookie exchange.

I’ve been busy filming videos for my YouTube Channel and couldn’t wait to give you a preview of these cute Mickey & Minnie Mouse Christmas Cookies!

We just got back from Disney World and I was inspired by all of the beautiful Christmas decorations to make these fun and easy no bake cookies.

The week before our trip, I was in Orlando and it was in the 90’s. When we got to the park it turned rainy and cold. I only packed t-shirts and shorts, so we HAD to buy these cute Minnie Mouse hooded sweatshirts. Really, just about every sweatshirt was sold out at the park because people didn’t plan on it being cold.

Since I’ve been wearing my cute Minnie Mouse sweat shirt non-stop since coming home, Minnie was in my head… or ON my head. Ha! Hence these sweet Disney themed cookies on the brain.

I’m still editing the step-by-step how-to video for these cookies, but with Christmas in FULL swing now, I thought you might like this Disney inspiration to get ready for holiday parties.

I found the adorable candy bows at Walmart. You can order them online here. Then with a few different types of Christmas sprinkles and frosting, the Oreo Mickey and Minnie Mouse cookies I assembled turned into festive holiday delights!
