Disney has shared an at-home recipe of the Grey Stuff from the Red Rose Taverne at Disneyland.

What’s Happening:

  • As part of the #DisneyMagicMoments series, Disney has shared an at-home recipe for the Grey Stuff dessert from the Red Rose Taverne at Disneyland.
  • The quick service restaurant serves the sweet treat on something similar to a British digestive biscuit with sugar pearls and chocolate cookie crumbs sprinkled on top.
  • This differs from the Walt Disney World version of the grey stuff, which comes on a plate by itself as a magic moment at the Be Our Guest restaurant and can be ordered as a topping on a chocolate cupcake.
  • The how-to video walks fans through the steps and the Disney Parks Blog has shared the written recipe.
