Although their parks are currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Disney is helping to keep the magic alive by releasing recipes for some of their fan-favorite theme park snacks.

Earlier this month, they gave step-by-step instructions on how to make their famous churros, Pineapple Dole Whip and grilled cheese sandwiches, and this time around, they’re sharing the recipe for their Mickey Mouse-shaped beignets.

“Now, you can cook up your favorite memories from New Orleans Square and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter from the comfort of your own kitchen,” wrote Disney Parks Blog, as they recommended pairing the powdered sugar-covered treat with a family viewing of The Princess and the Frog.

In order to make the batch-sized recipe, you’ll need a handful of ingredients — many of which are pantry staples — as well as an electric mixer, a dough hook and a Mickey-Mouse shaped cutter.

For 10 large beignets (or 2 dozen smaller ones), all you’ll need is dry yeast, sugar, vegetable shortening, salt, heavy cream, flour, vegetable oil, powdered sugar, 1 egg and water.

Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World are closed indefinitely amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The parks were originally planning to reopen at the end of March.

“While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees remains The Walt Disney Company’s top priority,” the company shared in an official statement.

You can find the full recipe on the Disney Parks Blog.
