Que c’est beau! We’ve never met an éclair we didn’t want to French (sorry), but this one from Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs in Orlando has us dreaming of Christmas in Paris. Decorated with a thin layer of white chocolate and filled with a light peppermint mousse, it’s a fun twist on the classic pastry you won’t want to share with anyone else.

We have a hard time turning down dessert on a normal day but make it mini and stick us in Disney and the answer will always be yes. Case in point: this holiday-themed Mickey Mousse dome cake complete with sprinkle-coated ears and a chocolate tail. It’s almost too petit to eat…almost.

7. Holiday Parfait

Availability: Walt Disney World Resort, Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs (11/5 – 12/30)

Don’t let the word parfait fool you, this holiday special is anything but boring. We begin with a base of bourbon white chocolate mousse, topped with a thin layer of maple chocolate ganache. The cranberry cherry panna cotta provides some tongue-puckering tartness while the chocolate chiffon cake crumble adds some much-needed crunch... Like we said, it’s not your average parfait.

10. Olaf Hot Cocoa Surprise

Availability: Walt Disney World Resort, The Ganachery at Disney Springs (11/12 – 12/30)

This giant hot cocoa bomb from The Ganachery in Disney Springs is like a warm hug from Olaf himself. Heat up some milk in a saucepan over the stove and watch as Olaf dissolves into a creamy cup of rich hot chocolate (complete with snowflake marshmallows, of course). And don’t worry, we already know what you’re thinking. He’s too cute to melt! But in the wise words of Olaf, some people are worth melting for.
