National Chocolate Day is on October 28, and Best of Orlando thinks it’s time you celebrate. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite chocolate treats at Orlando theme parks ranging from decadent to iconic. Let’s get to tasting!
Shakes at Toothsome Emporium
There is no better place to celebrate National Chocolate Day than at The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen at Universal’s CityWalk. You really can’t go wrong with anything at Toothsome, but we really recommend trying one of their famous shakes like the Cookie Jar Shake with vanilla ice cream, fresh whipped cream, blended cookies, topped with both crumbled cookies and a whole cookie. Plus, Universal artisans have created chocolate sculptures of the Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen as well as other popular Universal characters.
7-Layer Chocolate Sink Cake
The 7-Layer Chocolate Sink Cake from The Kitchen at Universal’s Hard Rock Hotel is the ultimate dessert for chocolate lovers. The cake incorporates not one, not two, but seven of your favorite desserts, many of which are chocolate, into one. The desserts starts with a chocolate walnut brownie on the bottom, then peanut butter, chocolate chip cookie, pecan pie, New York Cheesecake, chocolate mousse cake and topped with vanilla cake. Then the entire thing is covered in chocolate icing, chocolate cake crumbles and chocolate chips.
Who can resist a Mickey Bar?! Despite there being many other delicious chocolate treats at Walt Disney World we can’t help but put the Mickey Bar on this list. The classic treat takes us back to our childhood and will certainly light up your own kid’s faces. The classic combo of vanilla ice cream and chocolate, plus Mickey-Shaped ears make this treat perfect for National Chocolate Day.
If you have a refined palate for chocolate, than you will appreciate the mouthwatering chocolates and ganache at The Ganachery at Disney Springs. The Ganachery’s chocolate squares are the most popular item to purchase. You can choose from such decadent flavors as Coconut, Egyptian Sea Salt, Maple Pecan, Gianduja and more.
Shamu Brownie Sundae
SeaWorld Orlando invites guests to celebrate the tasty day with a Shamu Brownie Sundae. Not your average sundae, the Shamu Brownie Sundae is a customizable sundae served in souvenir Shamu bowl. Guests can choose from vanilla, chocolate, or swirl soft serve ice cream that’s placed between two fudge brownies. It’s all covered in whipped cream and topped with any of the toppings you want including sprinkles, chocolate syrup, mini marshmallows, M&M’s and more.
