Disney just shared its famous Mickey Mouse pretzel recipe

Shanghai Disneyland has announced it will reopen on May 11, becoming the first Disneyland to close due to the coronavirus pandemic. While this may seem like good news, there's still a lot of work to be done before parks around the world can reopen and be used safely. But even though you may not know when your next visit to Disneyland is, you don’t have to wonder when you’ll get your next Disney treat. Disney has released a Mickey Mouse pretzel recipe so you can make them at home.

Of course, you can make any old pretzel and the recipe will be pretty much the same. But these are Mickey Mouse pretzels, which are worth ten times more. I mean, how can you top the magic of Disney? Tough question: You can't.

Making Mickey Mouse pretzels is easy. All you need is store-bought pizza dough, sea salt flakes, flour, and two whipped egg whites. Store-bought pizza dough saves you the step of making dough from scratch using yeast and waiting for it to rise. This way, whether you're a beginner or not, you can get to the good stuff faster. (Psst… Delish Kids has a great Mickey Mouse pretzel recipe too.)

Typically, you can make up to four Mickey Mouse pretzels from one tube of pizza dough. For each pretzel, you need to roll a portion of the dough into three balls: one for the head and two smaller ones for the ears. Roll the pieces into thin circles. Then, lightly dust with flour. After that, connect the three circles so that they look like Mickey's head. Do this for each pretzel, then brush each pretzel with egg white and sprinkle on top with sea salt. The last thing you want to do is pop them in the oven for 10-15 minutes! Once baked, you'll have fun and delicious Mickey Mouse pretzels that you can totally share on Instagram and, of course, enjoy. You can pair the pretzels with your favorite cheese or sour cream and onion dip.

While the finished product may taste the same as regular pretzels, there's a big difference. It's not every day you get to bite off a replica of Mickey's head.

In addition to Disney's Mickey Mouse pretzels, the company has been releasing and publishing recipes for its iconic theme park treats since mid-March when social distancing guidelines were strongly recommended. Some recent launches include "The Gray Thing" from Beauty and the Beast , cheddar cheese soup at Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot, and plant-based fries at Disney's Beach Club Resort.

Even though Disneyland remains closed for now, the company has been keeping customers happy with these family recipes. The company also recently launched Disney-themed interactive activities online for parents to do with their children. From coloring templates to videos of their favorite celebrities singing Disney classics, the company is making sure to let people take the magic of Disney home with them as they navigate these difficult times.
