In this video, we attempt to recreate the popular Chesire Cat Tail snack from Disney’s Magic Kingdom. We couldn’t find an “official” recipe, so this is a compilation of a few things we saw online and then some things we wanted to try! Our goal was to include 5 main ingredients: puff pastry, cinnamon roll dough, cinnamon/sugar, chocolate chips, and royal icing.
We halved this cinnamon roll dough recipe from Ree Drummond (as you can see in the video, I totally botched her instructions and we thought it all turned out fine!): https://www.thepioneerwoman.com/food-cooking/recipes/a11914/cinammon-rolls/
We used this recipe from Alton Brown for the royal icing: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/royal-icing-recipe-1941917
And we used store-bought frozen puff pastry sheets for the ones where we included puff pastry.
Our verdict: Puff pastry + cinnamon/sugar + chocolate chips + royal icing make the perfect Cheshire Cat Tail from the Magic Kingdom! If you like a chewier version, use cinnamon roll dough on the bottom layer. Don’t skimp on the chocolate chips or the cinnamon/sugar!
