We made our way over to the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party of 2017 last week, and of course, we had to try a wide variety of the desserts Disney had to offer. There were some desserts that unfortunately were sold out by the time we made our way to them, so do keep that in mind if many of these area must during your party visit. For a full list, you can check out our original story.

Haunted Mansion Portrait Desserts

Chocolate tart filled with chocolate ganache and topped with peanut butter icing and a Haunted Mansion-inspired white chocolate portrait.

If you’re a peanut butter fan, you’ll love this one because it tastes a lot like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. This was probably the least favorite in the group just because it was too rich in that flavor. Sadly, due to the humidity, as soon as it was taken out of the fridge the portrait started to melt. This one is available at Liberty Square Market next to Hall of Presidents for $5.49.

Chocolate tart filled with chocolate ganache and topped with Oreo panna cotta and a white chocolate Haunted Mansion-inspired portrait.

Have you ever had the Grey Stuff at Be Our Guest? The Oreo filling in this dessert is exactly the same as what you would find the Grey Stuff. You can find this “dynamite” dessert at Aloha Isle for $5.49.

Chocolate tart filled with raspberry compote and topped with white chocolate mousse and a Haunted Mansion-inspired white chocolate portrait.

Our favorite Haunted Mansion dessert of the three we tried, this one has a raspberry compote in the middle and is absolutely delicious!! If you’re a fan of fruit and chocolate, check this one out at Storybook Treats for $5.49. Additionally, there’s a 4th Haunted Mansion dessert, unfortunately it was sold out by 9PM when we made our way to Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies.

Jack Skellington Dessert

A vanilla panna cotta, chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, white chocolate and dark chocolate crisp pearls, dark chocolate curls and a white chocolate Jack Skellington.

I was the only one in the group that really enjoyed this, mainly because it was so rich. The vanilla cream at the bottom was the part I enjoyed the most. Designed to be eaten like a popsicle, this is a fun dessert that offers some good photo opportunities. Available at Sleepy Hollow for $5.49 alongside the infamous Pumpkin Waffles.

Main Street Bakery Snacks

Bright orange Mickey Halloween Cupcake with chocolate cake filled with purple marshmallow fluff topped with orange vanilla buttercream, sprinkles and a white chocolate scarecrow Mickey.

Check out this cute cupcake available at the Main Street Bakery. This rich chocolate cupcake was pretty good, but the purple marshmallow filling made this one of the more unique specialty cupcakes of the last few years.

Not a bad option for $5.99 but the better item at the Main Street Bakery was…

Mickey-shaped Cinnamon Roll takes on a spooky twist with orange icing and a chocolate spider web.

This Cinnamon Roll was AMAZING! Take the standard Disney cinnamon roll and add orange and chocolate icing to it and that’s pretty much what you have here. This was far and away everyone’s favorite, and the best part is that its available outside of the parties as well. Sadly, the Starbucks pastry bag did a number of the appearance of ours, but you get the idea. Available for $6.29 at the Main Street Bakery.
