I tried it, and it was very, very good! Even better still, I used Splenda instead of sugar, so the snack doesn't have a bunch of sugar to make it good. Does anyone else have any recipes that they use to make park type food at home? Also, does anyone have ways to make these foods healthier?
Just interesting conversation. :) *** Edited 1/2/2007 3:14:55 AM UTC by Jeff Young***

Oh....if you ever go to the Blue Bayou at Disneyland, they will give you recipes for anything on the menu. I got the recipe for Mint Julips and the Monte Cristo. The Julips came out OK, but the sandwiches were good in that not-so-great-great-for-your-health kinda way.

Funnel cakes are fun to make. I like the water idea on the fries. I wonder how much that affects the flavor. Personally, I don't think making your own fries is worth the hassle when perfectly good fries at a reasonable price are readily available and you don't have to deal with the mess.

Works equally well with almonds... ;)
2) Break into small pellet sized pieces and put in a large mixing bowl.
2) Mix in 4 cups of sugar and 6 ounces of the food coloring of your choice.
3) Freeze overnight.
Voila! Homemade Dippin' Dots! Scoop into small cups and serve. For the real park experience, charge lots of money for each cup.
I swear the park could make a fortune with that alone if they opened up their own chain restaurant that only sold the fries and cheese-on-a-stick.

Hint: You could make a similar treat using packing peanuts.
I swear, if not for the ability to dispense misleading information regarding future expansions, those DD stands would be EMPTY...or *should* be... ;)
1. 2 pds of lean ground sirloin or ground turkey. Brown and strain grease. Either chop it up fine with a fork or use a blender to break up clumps.
2. Put beef in large pot.
3. 1 tsp of cinnamon
4. 1/2 tsp of cummin
5. 2 large onions ground
6. dash of worchestershire sauce.
7. 1 garlic clove ground
8. 1 tablespoon of chili powder
9. 1/2 tblspoon of ground black pepper
10 1 tablespoon of salt
11 1 6oz can of tomato paste
12. 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
13. 1 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar
14 1 cube of bakers chocolate
15. 1 quart of water
16. 1/2 tablespoon of ground allspice
17. 3 whole bay leaves
18. 1 tsp coco
Bring to moderate boil and boil down to desired texture. We like ours with a little juice but you can take it down more if you like. DO NOT BURN IT, Stir often and lower heat to a simmer once the water is down.
Makes about 4 large three ways over spagghetti topped with a mild cheddar cheese (Shredded) add onions and red beans if you like. If you want it as a fire chili (Add more crushed red pepper) TEX MEX.
Drain the beef/turkey good before adding the ingreedients and it' not really bad for you. The spaggehti and cheese are worse. It's fine on it's own.
It's consists of french fries, a mixture of cheeses, and a slightly-spiced brown gravy poured over the top. Yeah! I know, real healthy sounding! But man, that stuff was awesome!
Here's a recipe I dug up with no other than Timon from Lion King leading you through the process.
