A fan-favorite restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios is the 50's Prime Time Café. While sitting at retro TV tables, diners have the opportunity to take in black-and-white footage from popular prime-time programs of decades past. The throwback vibe recalls the iconic American diner, so it goes without saying that classic American comfort foods like chicken pot pie, fried chicken and meatloaf are what you will find on the menu.

Of course, no diner menu is complete without a selection of milkshakes and floats. The café offers the three classic milkshakes flavors you know and love: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. But it also has a well-known peanut butter and jelly shake.

Though the park is currently closed, Disney created a single-serving version that you can enjoy at home. And that gives you options, like deciding which flavor of jelly you want to add to the blender: strawberry or grape. If you don't have jelly on hand, don't worry. You can substitute two tablespoons of strawberry jelly with two cups of sliced strawberries.

Disney isn't the only major brand to release one of its top-secret recipes as loyal fans have found themselves suddenly at home. Chipotle recently shared its guacamole recipe, DoubleTree published its chocolate chip cookie recipe and IKEA created a recipe for its iconic Swedish meatballs.
