Happy (almost) fall y’all! The weather where I live is starting to change and get cooler, and I love it. You can smell fall in the air! Pumpkin spiced everything is back, the leaves are starting to change, fall is just the best! Caramel apples are another deliciously wonderful thing about autumn. The only problem with them is that they are so messy and hard to eat. Here is an easy way to enjoy caramel apples in a bite-sized

way!

Ingredients:

  • 2 very large Fuji apples
  • 3 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup caramels, melted
  • Chopped pecans
  • Popsicle sticks

Slice the apples into half inch slices. Remove the seeds. Melt chocolate in microwave for 2 minutes, then stir in coconut oil until smooth. Dip the apple slices in chocolate and place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place the caramels in a glass bowl and microwave for 40-60 seconds. Stir until smooth, and drizzle the melted caramel over the apples and sprinkle with nuts. Refrigerate them for an hour, then enjoy!

 

This is perfect for when you have a sweet tooth but don’t want to make the commitment to a whole desert.

XOXO, Chels

Hello Girls!

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year!  Football games, big sweaters, and bonfires are all part of the fun.  One of my favorite things to do with my friends is to bake treats.  I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite fall recipes!

Caramel apples may be one of my favorite fall treats EVER!  They are so juicy, yet sweet like a candy.  Nothing beats the tastes of homemade caramel apples, so here’s how you can make your own!  What you’ll need is:

  • 8 large apples
  • 8 chopsticks or craft sticks
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter      (1/4 stick)
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

Start by setting the apples upright and placing a stick at the top of each apple. Also, prepare an ice cold water bath (we will get to this soon).  Next, combine the remaining ingredients in a sauce pan and heat on medium until everything is melted together.  Once melted down, immediately place the bottom of the saucepan in the water bath to cool the mixture down.  Now that everything is completed, dip each apple in the caramel and set on a cooking pan with parchment paper.  Get creative and roll them in nuts, M&M’s, chocolate covered pretzels, or anything you can think up!  Place in the refrigerator and enjoy!!

Another fun fall snack is M&M popcorn….yes, you heard me right!  It’s really simple.  Pop a bag of buttered popcorn in the microwave and add a handful of M&M’s to the popcorn right as you take it out of the bag.  It will melt the chocolate, creating a gooey, buttery, chocolaty, creation.  Also, don’t forget about the bonfire classic, s’mores.  Dig in!Chelsea Crockett- Popcorn and chocolate

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

Falls Favorite Duos: Caramel and Apples

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,

            Chelsea
