Disney’s “Something Grey” Recipe from Beauty & Beauty Beast is So Simple to Make

If you've listened closely to the lyrics to "Be Our Guest" from Disney's Beauty and the Beast , you've probably raised your eyebrows in confusion. At one point in the song, Lumiere sings, "Try the gray stuff, it's delicious. Don't believe me? Ask about the menu." While the child version of you chats away contentedly, the adult version of you might Will be skeptical about what the "grey stuff" actually is. Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore. Disney has released the recipe for "The Gray Stuff" — and it's a delicious dessert you'll want to try.

While it's uncertain whether Walt Disney knew what "the gray stuff" was when he created Beauty and the Beast , the Disneyland chefs creatively turned it from a line in the song into an actual creation.

Essentially, the "grey stuff" is a combination of cookies and cream sandwich cookies, vanilla pudding and whipped cream, all served on a scallop cookie. The creamy concoction is already served at the Red Rose Tavern in Disneyland and at the Be Our Guest restaurant in Disney World. Now, you have the chance to enjoy it at your own table.

"The Gray Stuff" is as easy to make as it looks. All you need is milk, instant vanilla pudding mix, Cookies and Cream Sandwich Cookies, whipping ingredients, instant chocolate pudding mix, and scallop cookies. Even with mixing, stirring and cooling the dessert, the entire dessert is ready in just 15 minutes. Just make sure you have a food processor, blender, and piping bag to make your dessert look as delicious as possible.

Due to social distancing, many of us have turned to baking and cooking during quarantine. Disney has been a source of inspiration and support during this time. Since many stay-at-home orders went into effect in mid-March, Disney has posted several different recipes for its most famous theme park treats online for fans to try at home. Some recent offerings include cheddar cheese soup, plant-based cracker chips and Walt Disney's favorite chili.

While all of Disney's parks and attractions are closed indefinitely to keep citizens safe during the pandemic, the company has been posting content on its blog to help customers navigate the time of social distancing at home. From recipes like this to interactive content for parents to try with their kids, Disney is always looking for ways to engage customers even as they stay home.

If you've seen other Disney recipes and thought they were too complicated or time-consuming for you, "The Gray Stuff" is perfect for you to make. It's easy, it's quick, and as Lumiere says, "it's delicious."
