Disneyland Inspired Mickey Pretzel Recipe

Disneyland Inspired Mickey Pretzel Recipe

Everything tastes better in Mickey form, right? Say hello to the yummiest, easiest Mickey pretzel recipe out there. These taste so delicious and they’ll make you feel like you’re at Disneyland sitting on Mainstreet, USA. 

While our pretzels don’t look quite as fancy as Disneyland’s, they taste JUST as delicious!

Ingredients To Make Mickey Shaped Pretzels

  • 1 ½ c lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 ¼ tsp yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 c flour
  • ⅓ c baking soda (for boiling)
  • 6 c water (for boiling)
  • 1 egg
  • Coarse salt

Preheat your oven to 425°. I used my Kitchen Aide for this recipe but you don’t even need to use a mixer if you don’t want to. To begin, mix the sugar into the lukewarm water. Sprinkle the yeast into the water. Let your yeast bloom for about 5 minutes. 

Once your yeast has bloomed, mix in the salt. Slowly mix in the flour 1 cup at a time. Mix in the rest of your flour until your dough is no longer sticky. Press your finger into the dough, if it bounces back then you have enough flour and it’s ready to knead.

Knead the dough on a floured surface for about a 1 minute. Roll your dough into a ball and cut the dough into desired portion sizes. This recipe makes 8 large pretzels or more mini pretzels. You can create whatever size you’d prefer.

To create the mickey shape roll your chunk of dough into a long rope. Start at the bottom of his face and loop each ear. Then connect the other end of the dough back at the bottom. See the picture for a reference. 

Mix together 6 cups of water and ⅓ c baking soda. Bring this mixture to a boil. Use a slotted spatula to place a pretzel in the boiling water. Boil each pretzel for about 25 seconds flipping it half way through. Do not over boil, it gives the pretzels a funny taste. Scoop the pretzel out of the water and let the excess water drain off. Place the boiled pretzel on a greased cookie sheet. 

Beat an egg in a bowl and brush the egg on top of your boiled pretzels. I do a VERY thin layer so the pretzel doesn’t taste eggy. Sprinkle the pretzels with coarse salt. 

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Without taking the pretzels out of the oven, broil them for another 2 minutes. Keep a close eye on them while broiling so they don’t burn. 

Now sit back, put on some Disney music, and enjoy your warm Mickey Pretzel!

Live Action Kim Possible Review

Live Action Kim Possible Review

Disney Channel’s Kim Possible is now available on DVD and Digital.

Kim Possible is just your basic average girl but she was here to save the world in the animated series that ran on the Disney Channel from 2002 – 2007. Now after more than 10 years, she has returned in her very first live-action DCOM (Disney Channel Original Movie). Disney Studios seems to be on a kick with live action recreations and Disney Channel is no exception.

I have loved watching all of the Disney Channel Original Movies since I was a kid, so naturally, I was excited to see this movie. I watched the live action Kim Possible movie the night that it aired on Disney Channel and honestly I was very entertained for the entire 86 minute runtime of the movie.

The movie is based on the line “high school makes saving the world look easy.” On top of trying to battle the diabolical Dr. Drakken, Kim must face her most difficult challenge yet, high school. Just like any typical movie things are a little over dramatized. I know some kids can be ruthless but high school is really not as bad as this and other movies make it seem. Overall I thought the story was entertaining but it was very predictable. I always love to see a good twist but this plot was as predictable as a Hallmark movie.

The acting was good especially for a cast made up of mostly youth. I must say though that the special effects and acting were very cheesy and overdramatized. Honestly, that is kind of to be expected in a Disney Channel Original Movie and part of the reason I enjoyed them when I was little and still do. If anything you will have a good laugh especially during most of the fight scenes.

I really thought the casting was perfect for all of the characters. There was even a super fun cameo appearance from Christy Carlson Romano. Christy was the original voice of Kim Possible when it aired on the Disney Channel. Being an avid fan of the series “How I met your mother” it was great to see Alyson Hannigan play the role of Kim’s mother. Patton Oswald also has a quick role as one of the villains at the beginning of the show.

Ron Stoppable played by Sean Glambrone was by far my favorite character. Ron is Kim’s best friend and sidekick when saving the world. Ron is kind of a goober whose clumsy mistakes always seem to work out for the best. The thing I love about Ron though is his positive attitude and he always knows what to say to make us smile or laugh. I think we can all learn a thing or two from Ron about finding the positive and good of any situation. There is way too much sadness and darkness in the world so let’s all try to remember and focus on the happiness this life has to offer.

Overall I enjoyed the movie and would recommend seeing it at least once. It is a movie that can be enjoyed as a family. I had it on the other morning and even my 18-month-old boy was very entertained and interested in the movie.

The DVD special features contain audition tapes of Sadie Stanley (Kim Possible), Sean Glambrone (Ron Stoppable) and Issac Ryan Brown (Wade). I always enjoy watching these audition tapes because it reminds me that these actors are real-life people too who make mistakes. That being said they are all extremely talented at what they do and were chosen to play these roles because of that.

The DVD also includes a blooper reel because who doesn’t love to laugh at other people’s mistakes. The bonus features include a special Q&A with Sadie Stanley (Kim Possible)  and Sean Giambrone (Ron Stoppable).
