October is here, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Fall is in the air, and with that comes changing leaves, cooler weather, and of course “fall themed” food! Today on the blog we are going to give nachos a fun little spin. If you like caramel apples, then you’re going to love this new take on nachossalted-caramel-apple-nachos-1024x885

Ingredients:

  • 4 large green apples
  • ½ package unwrapped caramels or caramel bits
  • 1 tablespoon of water
  • ½ package white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 crushed Heath bar

Clean and dry the apples. Slice them, then arrange them on whatever you are serving the nachos on. I recommend a large serving platter. Next, place the caramels in a glass bowl with 1 tablespoon of water and microwave for 25 seconds at a time until they are melted. Drizzle this over the apples, then place the white chocolate chips in a separate glass bowl and microwave just like you did with the caramels. Drizzle this over the apples as well. Then sprinkle the mini chocolate chips and crumbled Heath bar over the apples. Serve right away or refrigerate until you want to eat it.

This is the perfect treat to bring to a Halloween party or fall get-together!

XOXO, Chels

I love candy. That’s a fun fact about me. My favorite kind of candy, though, is sour candy. I have a weakness for everything sour, from gummy worms and beyond. I found a way to mix my love for soNational-Gummy-Worm-Day-2014ur candy with a refreshing way to stay cool this summer. Introducing sour gummy worm popsicles!

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite fruit juice
  • Sour gummy worms

Grab your favorite popsicle molds and get to work. Add worms to the molds and press them towards the bottom and sides of the molds. Freeze the molds ahead of time to help the worms stick better. Next, pour in your fruit juice of choice. Freeze these pops overnight, then take out and enjoy! Every bite is filled with fruity, sour goodness!

Ready to try the most fun popsicles you will taste all summer? Give this recipe a whirl!

XOXO, Chels

What is your favorite candy bar? One of my absolute favs is Snickers! The best way to watch a movie is with a bucket of popcorn, so at your next movie marathon with your gal pals, make them Snickers popcorn!

Ingredients

  • 8 quarts of popped cornSnickers-Caramel-Popcorn
  • 1 cup of salted butter
  • 2 cups of packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup of light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup of salted peanuts
  • 30 “fun size” Snickers bars, chopped
  • 3 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Over medium heat, boil the butter, brown sugar, salt and corn syrup for 5 minutes. Remove the mixture from heat and stir in the baking soda. Pour the mixture over the popcorn and stir it so that it covers all of the corn. Spread some wax paper onto the counter and then pour the covered corn onto the wax paper. Sprinkle the peanuts on top and then transfer it into a roasting pan and bake for 1 hour, stirring it every 15 minutes. When you remove it from the oven, stir in the chopped Snickers and put it back in the oven for about 3 minutes. Remove the popcorn from the pan and then spread it onto the wax paper to cool. Drizzle melted chocolate on top of it, and then store it in a container until you and your friends are ready to devour it!

XOXO, Chels

Halloween is such a fun time of the year! For one night you get to dress up as someone or something else, hangout with all of your friends, and of course, get lots and lots of candy!  So what do you do with all of that left over Halloween candy?  Who knows, it could still be sitting there until Christmas!  I’ve got the perfect dessert dip to make with your loads of candy! Chelsea Crockett- monster cookie dough dip

Monster cookie dough dip is perfect for all of those M&M and Reese’s Pieces packets you got in your bag. Here’s what you’ll need:

8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 Cup Oats (regular or quick)
1 Cup  Miniature Plain M&Ms and/or Reese’s Pieces

All you have to do is mix in all of the ingredients until smooth! (Hint: place it in the refrigerator to harden once it’s complete.)  Grab some graham crackers or pretzels and dig in!  Enjoy!

Happy Halloween!

Sweet Getting-To-Know-You Game

Are you ever at a party and its kinda awkward because you don’t really know the people there? I have a super sweet idea for a “getting to know you” game that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Why? It involves chocolate! I’m in! This game can be played in any situation that you need to break the ice.

Have each person take a handful of M&Ms and put them in a plastic cup so they don’t melt in their hands. For each color of M&M, you have to answer a specific question. Here are some examples:

–          Red- something that happened yesterday.

–          Orange- something you are good at.chelsea crockett

–          Yellow- something about your childhood.

–          Blue- something you cannot live without.

–          Brown- something you learned last week.

–          Green- something you like to watch/listen to.

This kind of activity not only makes things less awkward because you get to talking and learning about each other, it is also delicious! Try this out next time you have a gathering or a few friends over.

XOXO, Chels

Hi Insiders!

            Halloween is such a fun time of the year.  It’s the one day you can dress up as anything you want and not act yourself for a day.  So what do you do when you’re too old to Trick-or-Treat?  I’ve got a few fun Halloween ideas to keep the evening as exciting as it as when you were a kid!Chelsea Crockett- bonfire

            Have all of your friends over for a bonfire.  Instead of dressing up in your own costume, create a themed bonfire.  Have everyone show up in their wackiest pajamas or as their favorite Disney character.  Complete your bonfire with s’mores, spooky music, and ghost stories.  Put plenty of blankets outside, so everyone can cuddle up and enjoy the night out by the fire.

            If you’re looking for a lazier night with a few friends, give your parents the night off and watch scary movies and hand out candy to the neighborhood children.  Although you’ll be staying indoors, you’ll still be in the Halloween spirit!

            If you’re planning on going all out this year, invite all of your friends over for a Halloween bash!  Clear out your basement, have all of your friends dress up, and dance the night away.  Be sure to provide plenty of crazy Halloween Chelsea Crockett- Halloween donutssnacks, like donut eyeballs (donut holes with red goo as the veins and a blue M&M as the iris) and a long music playlist.  You could even set up a station to make your own caramel apples.  Be creative with your party!

Happy Halloween!
