Sunday Brunchies and Crunchies: S'more S'mores
28 August 2011

It is my firm belief that Walt Disney World has a strange new love affair with the S'more, as it seems to be appearing in different forms all over the resort. Harking back to the very first Sunday Brunchies and Crunchies edition of this blog, the S'more returns, this time at the Sunshine Seasons food court in the Land Pavilion at Epcot. During a recent visit to the Land with my roommate John, his visiting mother and sister, and our friend Ashley, we found the bakery shop at Sunshine Seasons was offering a brand new dessert.

We stopped by the food court for a quick snack before heading to Soarin' (touring tip: get in line for this attraction minutes before the park closes'it's probably the shortest stand-by line you'll ever see all day, and you get to be in the park after closing!). As we approached the bakery shop's display case, we noticed something different in the case. A little chocolate marshmallow cake sat in a sea of other pudgy little marshmallow chocolate cakes, calling our names and attention, teasing us with the sweet and richness the treat would surely bring us. We asked the cast member what it was and she grinned wide and proudly stated that Sunshine Seasons was now offering the S'mores brownie. If the picture below is not enough to tempt you, the price certainly will. For what you were getting, the price was quite a sweet deal: $2.55 (with tax!) for this brand new dessert. For Disney prices, that's quite inexpensive for what we were getting! (Price as of mid-August)

 

I must say, the S'mores brownie was AMAZING. At first, I was a little put off by the imbalance of chocolate to other s'mores ingredients at first glance, but then again, the dessert is a brownie with a S'mores theme, so I couldn't complain. The brownie was the expected rich and delicious dense chocolaty brownie goodness, but the coolest part was the graham cracker bottom. If you are a fan of graham cracker crusts on cheesecake, you will most definitely love the graham cracker crust on the S'mores brownie. Much thicker than on a cheesecake, this graham cracker crust was full of just the right balance of crunch and chewiness to serve as a base for the dessert and provide the appropriate amount of flavor to bring the taste and summertime campfire memories that come with S'mores. The marshmallows were a nice sweet addition to help round out the flavor and any more would've been overkill. The finishing chocolate and caramel drizzle was a terrific garnish for decoration and that little bit of extra flavors to complete the dessert. Our party agreed that the new dessert was delicious, though John and Ashley decided they probably could've shared one rather than each of us getting our own. In my opinion, the portion size was perfect and I gladly devoured the entire dessert. Forget sharing, this wasn't circle story time around the camp fire; this was dessert in Disney World!
