Two things come to mind when I think about fall snacks: Pumpkins and s’mores. Why not combine the two for a sweet, festive goodie! I think these are great bonfire snacks, or something cute to make for your bf as a random treat!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can pure pumpkin
  • ½ cup butter, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers
  • 12 graham cracker squares
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows (separated)
  • 1 1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil. Next, heat the pumpkin, butter, milk and cinnamon in a small saucepan over low heat until the butter is melted and the mixture is heated. Stir in graham cracker crumbs. Remove from heat.

Lay out the graham cracker squares on the bottom of the baking dish. Spread half of the pumpkin mixture on top of graham crackers. Sprinkle 1 cup of marshmallows and 2/3 cup of chocolate chips over pumpkin mixtures. Spread remaining pumpkin mixture over marshmallows and chocolate chips. Sprinkle the rest of the marshmallows and chocolate chips. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden. Let it cool, refrigerate for an hour, then enjoy!

Deeeeelish.

Fall Puppy Chow

Puppy chow is probably on my list of top 10 favorite foods. Not even kidding. I cannot stop myself when there is a bowl of it in front of me. It just magically disappears. Since fall is upon us and everything is now pumpkin flavored, what sounds better than pumpkin flavored puppy chow? Not much. Not much at all. Here is how to make pumpkin spice puppy chow!

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
  • 12 ounces orange candy melts
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon1473888485-yummy-pumpkin-spice-puppy-chow
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 cups candy pumpkins

Pour the Chex cereal into a bowl and put to the side. Melt the candy melts for 20 seconds, stir, melt, and stir until they are melted. Stir 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, the cloves, allspice and nutmeg in to the candy melts until it is combined. Pour this mixture onto the cereal and stir gently to coat all of the squares. Be super gentle! Pour the powdered sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon into a large Ziploc baggie. Pour in the coated squares and shake until they are all coated in sugar. Pour in the pumpkins and toss some more. Store it in an air tight container, or just eat them all right then and there! No judgments here.

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Nachos: Caramel Apples Edition

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 get so pumped when stores start putting out candy corn because that means FALL IS HERE. Plus I just love candy corn. Today’s fall inspired recipe combines all of my fall favorites; cranberries, candy corn, pretzels, and white chocolate! I’ll tell you how to whip all of these yummy bits into a mouthwatering mixture.

Ingredients:3b23014ef0c0e096c73c0ad67ccffdac

  • ½ pound chopped white chocolate
  • 1 cup mini pretzels
  • ½ cup candy corn
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries

Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Leave an overhang on 2 sides of the pan. Melt the chocolate, and then spread it on the prepared pan. Sprinkle it with pretzels, candy corn, and cranberries. Allow it to cool in the fridge for a few hours, then remove the bark from the pan. Break it into pieces, eat a few yourself, and then give the rest away to friends, family, and possibly your favorite teacher. 😉

I feel like this dish is so festive! Thoughts?
