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

Who doesn’t love caramel corn? I love love love it! It is a sweet and salty snack that is sure to please the masses. The best part? You can make it into a cute holiday treat to make for Christmas parties! It is a definite crowd pleaser!

What you will need:

-1 cup of popcorn kernels, unpopped

-1 cup salted butter

-1/2 cup light corn syrup

-2 cups packed light brown sugar

-1 tsp sea salt

-1/2 tsp baking soda

-1 tsp vanilla extract

– Holiday M&M’s

 1. Pop your popcorn kernels and place it into a large bowl or two. Make sure that there is enough room in the bowls for you to easily stir the popcorn. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.

2. While your oven is warming up, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the corn syrup, brown sugar, and salt to the pan to make the caramel sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir frequently.

3. Once the mixture reaches a boil, let it boil without stirring it for 5 minutes. Remove it from heat, and stir in the baking soda and vanilla extract. The mixture should bubble up and become frothy. Pour the caramel sauce over the popcorn and stir it so that it coats the kernels evenly.

4. Spread the popcorn onto two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 40-50 minutes, removing it from the oven every 10 minutes to stir the kernels. Once they have baked thoroughly, remove from heat and let them cool, then add M&M’s!

 

This is a sure hit with any Christmas party! Try it out, you won’t be disappointed!

XOXO, Chels
