Replicating Disneyland’s Tigger Tail

With our newfound skills at caramel-making, Mother Duck and I have been seeking out new and exciting ways to use caramel.  After our experiments with caramel-covered popcorn balls, the next thing we decided to try was our own homemade Tigger tails.  You may remember this particular treat being mentioned in my post discussing the various desserts we had at Disneyland during Spring Dapper Day of 2017.  Tigger tails are marshmallow, covered in caramel, covered in sugar, with stripes of chocolate.  They are very tasty and very sweet.  And they seemed easy enough to replicate.

The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2017

While the best part of Disneyland is undeniably the rides, to be sure (and the scenery and the shows!), a trip to this fair kingdom of happiness would not be complete without some delicious morsels (the calories of which have the added benefit of being burned away thanks to the great distances we walked over the course of those two delightful days).  I’ve already discussed the meals we had during our time at Disneyland, but let’s not forget the most important part, the desserts, which shall be listed below for your reading enjoyment, from least best to most best!

The Duck Brings Dole Whip Home

I don’t travel very much, so whenever I learn of special treats that are not easily obtained, I usually must resort to making them myself.  One such thing was the butter beer from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which was quite a fun treat indeed.  I actually wrote about it in a post some time back.  Good stuff.  Just high in calories, no doubt, based on the amount of butter involved in the recipe.  The most recent treat that caught my interest was Disneyland’s (and World’s) Dole Whip, a pineapple-flavored soft serve-resembling concoction which I heard about from Adam the Woo’s Youtube channel.

The Duck’s Christmas 2016, Plus Some Dessert

This post is coming a bit late for Christmas, but alas, here it be.  I had a couple new comic books to read, after all, so this post had to be put on hold while that important work got done.  Ever since getting Elsa the cat, I have been unable to decorate the house as profusely as I used to for fear that she will steal or knock down anything she can get her paws on.  Plus, I’ve gotten rather lazy in that aspect of Christmas-time, so only minimal decorations were put out, and the tree only received decorations on its top half to stay out of the kitty’s reach.  Nevertheless, she still managed to knock the tree over twice, cracking a lovely egg ornament in the process.  Super glue seemed to patch it up quite nicely, but I was rather bothered by her behavior.  (I had my doubts Santa would be motivated to bring her any gifts this year after such a display of naughtiness.)  When we weren’t picking up after the cat’s reign of terror, my mom and I also did a dramatic reading of one of my more festive fan fiction stories, a Ratchet and Clank parody of A Christmas Carol I wrote a few years back.  To any Ratchet and Clank fans out there, can you guess which characters play the three ghosts?  Hint: Ratchet is Scrooge… Continue reading The Duck’s Christmas 2016, Plus Some Dessert
