One of the best parts about visiting the Disney parks is getting off of your favorite ride, heading into your favorite spot, and getting your favorite Mickey Mouse-shaped Disney treat. Although you may not be able to visit the parks right now, luckily, Disney is offering up a way to make on the best mouse-shaped treats out there—Mickey Beignets—at home!

The Disney Parks Blog shared this recipe Friday afternoon, making the perfect lead in to the weekend. If you've never had the pleasure, Disney serves up this delicious, New Orleans-inspired treat at both New Orleans Square in Disneyland and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort in Disney World. They even sometimes get a spicy (or boozy!) makeover!

Each beignet is pillowy soft, covered in powdered sugar, and made to look like the world's most famous mouse himself. They look kind of complicated to make, but they really aren't! You only need nine ingredients (plus water!) to make this recipe, which yields 10 large Mickey Mouse-shaped beignets or two dozen small beignets.

You can find the full recipe over on the Disney Parks Blog. Just a note from Disney: This recipe has been converted from a larger quantity in its restaurant kitchens, so the flavor profile may vary from the restaurant’s version. Still....it's fried dough and sugar. Chances are you won't be disappointed!

Disney also recommends that you eat these while watching The Princess and The Frog on Disney+ and, well, who are we to argue with Disney?! Guess I've got my Saturday planned!
