pumpkin-twist-witchYes, that’s me with Chef Christina from Disneyland…. She taught me how to make the famous seasonal pumpkin twists to share with you. We had such a great time filming in front of the Haunted Mansion. Watch the video to see how easy this recipe is to make, and enjoy it at home.  I am also including a Strawberry version at the bottom of this post for during the year.

In addition to the pumpkin twists, I also got a sneak peak at all the cool make your mouth salivate treats that Disneyland pulls out of it’s witch hat during this ghoulish time of year. Did you know that all the treats on a stick are decorated by hand? And to make it double the fun both Disneyland in California and Disneyland in Florida offer the same snacks so both coasts can celebrate in the same spooktacular fashion! That Mickey is something of a wizard! There are also a few other new treats to the park. Try the sourdough pumpkin shaped bread loaf. Then there is the  debut of the Ursula cupcake, so good you may let her steal your voice.

Below is a photo guide to some of the best treats in the park, so you know exactly what to look out for! Happy HalloweenTime at Disneyland!

Ingredients for Strawberry Twists:

  • 1/3- cup strawberry jam
  • 1 (17.3-ounce) box (2 sheets) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • egg wash (1 tablespoon water and 1 egg whisked)
  • sugar crystals, for garnish
  1. Bring the strawberry jam to room temperature.
  2. Place one sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured, movable, flat surface, such as a lightweight cutting board. Lightly dust surface of pastry with flour and roll to smooth creases.
  3. Spread pastry sheet with 1/3 cup of the strawberry jam.
  4. Roll the second sheet of puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to smooth creases; place on top of first sheet and press down gently.
  5. Place filled puff pastry in refrigerator for half hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. Line a baking sheet with a non-stick baking mat.
  8. Using a ruler as a guide, cut into pastry into 1 1/2-inch strips. Carefully pick up strips and place on baking sheets, twisting 3 times before laying down. Watch video to see exactly how.
  9. Using a pastry brush, brush tops with egg wash. Sprinkle with sugar crystals.
  10. Bake 20 to 22 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Cool 10 minutes.
  11. Enjoy!
