Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Disney Tsum Tsum Chocolate Covered Cookies

01.June.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s easy recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

In this recipe, we’ll learn how to make a recipe from the book Disney Tsum Tsum Sweets Recipes pictured above.

 

As well as the characters pictured on the front cover, others include Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. We’ll make the ears from marble chocolate than our usual chocolate plastic. The middle is like a sandwiched cookie, so you get a deliciously crunchy texture♡

 

1. Ingredients

Silicone cupcake case (my cupcake sections are 6cm)

White chocolate

Matcha chocolate

Marble chocolate

Chocolate plastic (also called “modelling chocolate”)

Chocolate pen

Oreo cookies

Pink, yellow, blue and green food colouring

 

2. Melt the chocolates separately over a bain marie and pour them into separate sections of the cupcake case, about halfway in each.

3. Place Oreo cookies into each like so.

4. Cover the cookies with the remaining chocolate and chill in the refrigerator until set.

5. Once fully set, the final step is to decorate with our chocolate plastic, marble chocolate and chocolate pen.

 

Sully’s purple ears are made with chocolate plastic.

Pooh’s ears are made from marble chocolate.

To see how I fully decorated my cookies check out the video I made below!

Lining them up like Disney Tsum Tsum toys makes them look really cute! All of the recipes I used this time are from the Japanese recipe book Disney Tsum Tsum Sweets Recipes (Japanese Title: ディズニーツムツムのスイーツレシピ). It shows how to create lots of different characters!

 

Kaori invites you into her world of character-themed food dishes in her recipe series. Be sure to check out her Instagram where she has uploaded many pictures of her character dishes!

  • Warm Your Heart with a Sweet Shizuoka Satsuma Cheese Tart

    11.November.2019 | FOOD

    BAKE CHEESE TART will be baking up another fresh flavour which will be released in BAKE CHEESE TART shops across the country from November 15. The new featured flavour is of a Japanese Satsuma sourced from Shizuoka prefecture called Mikka Mikan. The brand new Mikan Cheese Tart will be sold at BAKE CHEESE TART shops countrywide. 

    The Mikka Mikan Satsumas used for the cheese tart are sourced from Shizuoka, which is renowned for its deep history of producing Mikka Mikans, which are a kind of Satsuma Mandarin (Unshu Mikan). The Mikka Mikans are used to make a purée and powder which is then mixed with an original recipe cheese mousse for the tart.

     

    This flavour first arrived at BAKE CHEESE TART’s PARCHÉ branch in Shizuoka to celebrate its grand opening back in November 2018. The tart was intended to be a delicacy limited to the Shizuoka branch and to only be sold for a limited time. However, following its immense popularity, the Mikka Mikan Cheese Tart is going to be released again this winter for a limited time. 

    The mild and fresh cheese mousse is perfectly balanced with the tangy sweetness of the Mikka Mikans. The subtle sweetness of the biscuit base makes for the perfect match with the soft cheese mousse which will melt in your mouth. 

    BAKE CHEESE TART is also running an Instagram campaign involving the hashtag #おすそわけタルト. Those who purchase the Mikan Cheese Tart and post a photo of it on Instagram during the limited time period have the chance to enter a prize draw for a BAKE CHEESE TART coupon.

  • Adorable Mini Penguin and Polar Bear Confections to Arrive in Family Mart

    08.November.2019 | FOOD

    Tabemas is a Japanese confectionery series of small, traditional sweets designed to look like characters. For the first time, Tabemas is collaborating with the popular fictional character series Sumikko Gurashi to release Shirokuma and Penguin? sweets. The new confections will be sold in the chilled desserts corner of Family Mart convenience stores across Japan from November 12, 2019.

     

    The lovable characters who have been transformed into delicious sweets are Shirokuma: the shy polar bear who tends to get cold easily; and Penguin?, who has no confidence in their identity as a penguin. 

    The series name “Tabemas” means “edible mascot” and as the name suggests, these are traditional nerikiri confections which are made from bean paste and soft mochi, creating an adorable plump appearance.  Shirokuma’s body is white with pink ears whereas Penguin? has a pea-green body with a white stomach and yellow feet and beak. Both confections are kneaded with the characters’ charm and stand joining their tiny hands, staring at you with their adorable round eyes. 

    Both confections are filled with the mild flavour of red bean paste. To match the colour schemes of the characters, the white Shirokuma is milk-flavoured and the pale green Penguin? is apple-flavoured. The flavours of these confections are just as irresisitble as their appearance. You’re bound to be taking lots of photos of them for your next social media post in no time!

     

    As these confections are in limited supply, make sure to buy them as soon as possible if you are interested.
