The Dynamite Sundae was recently added to the dessert menu at The Golden Horseshoe in Disneyland. This is the second of their dishes to include a warm chocolate chip cookie base, the first being their signature Chocolate Chunk Cookie Sundae. But is it worth choosing this explosive new dish to top off your meal?

The menu listing for the Dynamite Sundae at The Golden Horseshoe in Frontierland in Disneyland

Listed under “The Grand Finale” section of The Golden Horseshoe’s menu, the Dynamite Sundae is described as “a warm, rich Triple Chocolate-chunk Cookie made with Brown Butter, topped with hand-scooped Vanilla Ice Cream, Cookie and Cream Crumbles, Raspberry Sauce, and Popping Candy.”

The sundae serves one (or maybe two people if you don’t mind sharing).

The best way to describe the flavor would be to liken it to a Cherry Cordial candy but with raspberry instead of cherry flavor. It was addictively delicious. The Popping Candy (just think of Pop Rocks) added a fun, fizzy effect after every bite. The serving of vanilla ice cream was generous in size and melded wonderfully with all the toppings as well as the cookie base.

The base was actually one of the dishes highlights. Each bite was flavorful and moist. The cookie was warm, as advertised, but not hot enough to make the ice cream melt too quickly.

I would definitely recommend the Dynamite Sundae to ice cream enthusiasts or anyone with a sweet tooth. I can promise you that I will be returning to The Golden Horseshoe for another heapin’ helping of this delicious dessert.
