I can still recall the first time I ever saw the animated movie version of Aladdin. Back in high school, some of my friends and I went to see the movie in the local theater. I loved the music, the storyline and pretty much everything about that movie version.
But as I got older, I hadn’t seen Aladdin for quite a few years.
Then, I had kids and well Disney movies we watched. Plus, back in 2015, we took our first trip to Disney World. As I recently shared with my Dumbo Cupcakes recipe, my younger daughter would only go on a hand full of rides as her fear of the dark was real. Of course, Dumbo was one of the rides that made the cut.
But so was Aladdin in Adventureland. See Aladdin was pretty much the equivalent to Dumbo with a ride that soared in the air and went around in a circle. Not much to scare for afraid of the dark child.
Plus, we have also dined more often than not the last few years at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Of course, Princess Jasmine makes an appearance in this grand castle-themed restaurant.
So, my girls have met Princess Jasmine with that dining experience on more than one occasion.
We also took them with a recent Girl Scout outing to see the Broadway version of Aladdin. So, my girls are pretty well-versed with the Story of Aladdin from all of the above.
Exciting times coming.
Therefore, with the upcoming live version movie opening in the next few weeks, Aladdin is a movie-going experience that the girls want to see.
But until the movie opens, I have two family-friendly recipes to share on my blog. Today marks the first of those two Aladdin themed dessert recipes.
See my girls love cookies and cupcakes so much here. The first Aladdin recipe is for cookies. So, that leaves cupcakes the next time out. *Hint stay tuned for that very soon.
But for my Aladdin Cookies, I merely used a white or vanilla cake mix. A little blue food coloring, as well as some yellow chocolate discs, too. The hardest part if writing Aladdin’s name, but even that is made easier by a small hint shared in the recipe below.
So, want to make Aladdin Cookies for your kids?

Disney Inspired Aladdin Cookies
- 1 Box White Cake Mix
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Oil
- Blue and Purple Food Coloring
- 1/2 Cup Yellow Chocolate Discs
- 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 ½ Tbsp Water
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, add the dry cake mix, oil, and eggs. Using a mixer, beat on medium speed for 1-2 minutes or until combined. It is a sticky and thick batter, so you’ll have to scrape the beaters once done.
- Add 8-9 drops of blue food coloring to the batter and mix.
- Using a 1.5-inch cookie scoop, scoop dough and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 9-10 minutes. Take out and let cookies cool on counter.
- Take the yellow chocolate discs and melt in a microwave safe bowl according to package directions. Add melted chocolate to a sandwich size baggie and snip one corner just a Very tiny bit. With your chocolate, write the word Aladdin on parchment paper. Try to have the letters touch, it’ll be easier to pick up and transfer to the cookie later. ** I printed off the word Aladdin and put that under my parchment paper for easy tracing. You could also write the word or free hand it as well. You will need 18 but make extra in case of breakage.
- In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and water, mix well. You don’t want it to runny so add more powdered sugar if needed. Add 5-6 drops of purple food coloring and mix.
- Take about 1 teaspoon of icing and place it in the middle of a cookie.
- With the back of your spoon, slowly spread out the icing but make sure it doesn’t run over the sides. If it’s dripping, then you added too much icing or it’s not thick enough. Immediately add the Chocolate Aladdin to the cookie. Repeat with the remaining cookies and let all dry!
