These secret treats were quietly premiered at Disneyland and quickly sold out in the mornings, gaining popularity as lovers of Disney sweets discovered Disney’s fantastical take on doughnuts, such as the “Avalanche” doughnut (picture above)—the popular Matterhorn Macaroon combined with a doughnut, covered in toasted coconut and caramel drizzle. To learn the behind-the-scenes-secrets of this sweet treat, read the full story of these doughnuts here.
