Cookie Decorating Kit – $10

Mickey Mouse snowman cookie decorating kit

The kit comes with a Mickey snowman cookie, along with red, white and green frosting and red and green Mickey sprinkles.

The frosting is very thick and very sweet, but the fact that it comes in a piping bag is a nice touch. Without scissors, it’s hard to get a very clean edge to open the bag, but it still works well enough.

This is a fun little activity and has become a holiday tradition for our family, but again, it’s not really about the cookie, it’s about the fun of decorating it.

*NEW* Santa’s Milk & Cookies Hot Cocoa – $6.50

Inspired by the Disney+ series The Santa Clauses, whole milk with flavors of cookies & cream and white chocolate topped with flavored whipped cream

This is one of the finest flavored hot cocoas we’ve had in a very long time.

It’s not so much a cocoa as it is warm milk with cookies and cream flavor. But it’s a more natural, subdued flavor because, being added into the milk rather than actual hot cocoa, it doesn’t have to overcome the chocolate flavor to then layer cookies and cream on top of that.

Mixed within the milk itself, the cookies and cream come forward strongly and create a unique drink that will be perfect for sipping while waiting for “World of Color – Season of Light.”

Hot Buttered Rum – $16

Rum, maple, hazelnut, Demerara sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and salted caramel

This drink is perfection on a chilly night. The salted caramel whipped cream, and maple syrup cut the alcohol, making this as easy to drink as possible.

Don’t get us wrong — it’s still quite strong. But you won’t taste the rum through this perfect nectar-like mix.
