When I think of fall there is one staple food that always comes to mind, and that is caramel apples! I love the combination of sweet, sticky caramel with the tangy sour apples. Instead of making cake pops for a sweet snack or a cute party dish this fall, make apple pops! Here are a few of my favorite kinds of pops.

  1. White chocolate toffee: Dip your apple slices into melted white chocolate and then roll them in crushed toffee.
  2. Peanut caramel: This one is my fav. Dip the slices in melted caramel and then roll them in crushed peanuts. I love the crunchy texture!toffee-apple-pops4
  3. Apple s’more: Dip your slices in melted chocolate, then roll them in crushed graham crackers and mini marshmallows.
  4. Coconut chocolate: Dip your slices in melted chocolate and then roll them in shredded coconut. If you want it to taste like an Almond Joy candy bar then add some crushed almonds to the mix!

For easy clean up put your toppings in a muffin tin that is lined with muffin liners. This is a fun party activity to do with friends or a yummy girls-night snack! Which apple pop flavor is YOUR favorite?

XOXO, Chels

One of my favorite things about fall is the abundance of apple flavored treats, scented candles, etc.  Even better than buying it in the store, you can create your own DIY apple face mask!  Not only do you get an amazing fall face mask out of it but a fun DIY craft, as well!  Here’s how to make your own. 🙂

Because of apple’s hard texture, you’ll need a blender to make this mask into a paste that you can apply to your skin.  Chelsea Crockett - Apple Face Mask MixChop up half an apple into small pieces and blend them together in the blender.  Heat up a small amount of milk and add a tablespoon of warm milk to the blender.  You’ll then take an egg and add the yolk to the mixture, as well!  Before blending in the yolk, I suggest stirring it to evenly distribute it.  You can even add in a tablespoon of oatmeal to thicken up the mixture and make it more spreadable!  Spread the mask on your face and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse with warm water and enjoy your new soft skin!

I hope you like this apple scented face mask as much as I do!  Not only does it smell good, but it leaves your face feeling clean and hydrated!

Love, Chelsea

This generation is the generation of smartphones.  We don’t want to admit it, but we love our phones and depend on them for more than we realize!  I’ve written many articles and have even made videos about various beauty and fashion hacks, but what about some iPhone secrets?  You can thank me later! 🙂

  • Faster charging.  If you need a quick charge for your iPhone, put it on airplane mode while it’s plugged in.  This turns off all of its features so it’s using minimal battery while trying to charge up!Chelsea Crockett - iPhone Timer Hack
  • Fall asleep listening to music.  If you like a little background music while you fall asleep, you can set a timer to turn off your music for you!  As long as it’s through Apple music or Spotify, you can go to your clock app, select the timer tab, and select “Stop Playing” in the “When Timer Ends” setting like the picture on the right.  It’ll shut your music off for you when the timer is done!
  • Better selfie editing.  If you download Facetune for $0.99, you can get rid of annoying pimples and blemishes.  It also has tons of cool features to perfect your pic.
  • Improving battery life.  If you’re phone is running low on battery, you can go to the battery tab of the settings app and switch on the “low power mode” setting.  It turns off unnecessary features to stretch out your battery life for up to hours at a time!

What hacks do I need to know?  Let me know in the comments section below!

These aren’t your average nachos…they are caramel apple nachos! I cannot decide if I like these or regular nachos better, so I guess I will just have to keep on eating both! 😉

These nachos are a fun fall themed treat. Caramel apples make me think of autumn, would you agree? You can even go apple picking with a bunch of friends (or a hot date!) to collect a few of your necessary ingredients. Here is the recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 gala apples
  • 3-4 granny smith applescaramelapplenachosbutterwithasideofbread4
  • Caramel ice cream topping
  • White chocolate candy coating
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Heath toffee bits

Pour the Heath bits and mini chips into 2 separate bowls. Cut a ziploc bag at the corner for the white chocolate drizzle. Cut your apples into slices and place them on the dish you want to serve them. Melt the white chocolate by placing the white chocolate candy coating in a small sauce pan on low heat. Stir it constantly until it is melted and smooth. Pour it into the cut Ziploc bag and drizzle it onto your apples. Next, drizzle the caramel ice cream topping onto them, then sprinkle the toffee bits and mini chocolate chips.

This recipe is super quick to make. Caramel apple nachos + a Halloween movie= the perfect autumn evening!

XOXO, Chels

I recently shared an article with you about how to use apples for beauty remedies.  Now, I want to talk to you about one of my favorite apple desserts and how you can make them!  We love apples at our house and with fall just around the corner, I know that means fresh caramel apples will be in our kitchen!  What’s a bonfire without s’mores and caramel apples!?  Therefore, I thought it would be fun to share a caramel apple recipe with you!Chelsea Crockett - Caramel ApplesFirst you need to cook 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat.  Be sure to swirl until golden brown.  Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup of cream, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.  Transfer to a bowl that is tall and good for dipping apples and let the ingredients cool slightly!  Insert a wooden stick into four apples and dip them into the caramel, one at a time.  Be sure to set them on parchment paper after dipping.  Then, let them harden by placing in the refrigerator if needed. You can also dip them in nuts, Oreos, M&M’s etc.! It’s quick, easy, and delicious!

There you have it….a perfect treat for bonfires, hayrides, Halloween parties, etc.  What better way to kick off fall then to treat yourself and your friends to some homemade caramel apples!  Yum!

Enjoy! – Chelsea

It’s apple picking time here in the Midwest.  I love to go out with my family to the local orchards, get on a wagon, and pick some apples!  Believe it or not, apples aren’t just for eating.  There are actually quite a few beauty remedies that apples can be used for. Since they’re in season, I’d thought it would be fun to share a few ideas with you. Chelsea Crockett - Apples

Apples are a natural beauty product.  They can work wonders on your complexion by treating acne.  One easy mask to make is an apple and honey mask.  You can make this by grating half an apple and mixing it with four teaspoons of honey.  Then, apply it to affected acne skin, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and rinse off with warm water.  This should leave a natural glow and radiance to your skin!  It can also be used to prevent pimples and other imperfections!

Apples can also be used as a natural facial cleanser.  The natural acid helps to remove excess oil from the skin and leave an instant shine and glow to the face.  An apple, milk, and honey cleanser can be made by measuring one tablespoon of fresh apple juice, two tablespoons of milk, and one teaspoon of honey.  Mix these ingredients together thoroughly and apply to your face and neck.  Massage for two minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

Your skin will be soft and glowing! If you have any apple beauty remedies, please be sure to share below :)!

Enjoy, Chels

Hi Insiders,

            Oh the sweet smell of fall!  Tis the season for bonfires, chilly air, cozy clothes, friends, and of course, caramel apples.  Ever since I can remember, caramel apples have been my go-to fall snack.  I crave them every fall!  Lucky for you, I’ve got some unique caramel apple recipes for you to try.  If you love caramel apples, then you’ll be drooling over these desserts!

  • Caramel Apple Bites:  All you’ll need are apples, melting caramels, your favorite toppings, toothpicks, and a melon scooper.  Start by placing parchment paperChelsea Crockett- caramel apple bites on a plate or baking sheet to get ready for the final outcome.  Next, wash your apples and dry them off.  Using the scooper, scoop out little balls and place them in a bowl.  Place the melting caramels in another bowl and microwave for about a minute.  Using a toothpick, dip each apple bite into the caramel and then roll it in your favorite topping (if you want).  Place them on the sheet and put it in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!
  • Caramel Apple Ice Cream Parfait:  This one is really simple!  All you need is vanilla ice cream, apple preserves, caramel, and graham crackers or cinnamon granola.  Place a scoop of ice cream in a tall glass or bowl.  Next, layer the ice cream with the apples, caramel, and crushed graham cracker or cinnamon granola.  Repeat until the glass or bowl is full.   
  • Mini Caramel Apple Pancakes:  Start by whipping up your favorite pancake batter, mixing in a pinch of brown sugar.  Next, Slice your apple down the middle and take out the core.  Cut thin slices of the apple so you have apple rings.  Then, dip each apple ring in the pancake batter and place them on the skillet.  Cook them as if they were regular pancakes.  Once done, drizzle with caramel (you can use the ice cream topping for this) and enjoy.  It’s like dessert for breakfast!

I hope you’ll enjoy these recipes.  I know I sure have!

Love,
