Fall food, fun, and free jewelry {giveaway!}

I may have mentioned a time or twenty that I love Fall.
One of our new favorite snacks can be made year round, but feels a little fall-ish too.
S'more Pops

The kids made these for the Barn Sale.
smores2

We use the huge campfire marshmallows. Put a wooden popsicle stick in the end.
I think it's easiest to "paint" it with chocolate using the back of a spoon, rather than dip it.
Then over a bowl, sprinkle on crushed graham crackers. Or colored sprinkles.
Or my favorite, Heath bar bits. Oh yes! Toffee S'more Pops!
And if you're a chocolate snob like me, you'll use Ghirardelli dark chocolate. Your life will never be the same.

My favorite fall treat is apples dipped in carmel sauce, it's delicious!

Melinda said...

My favorite fall treat is very simple...Pumpkin Muffins. You mix a spice cake mix (just the mix, not the eggs or oil as directed on the box) and a can of pumpkin. You mix them together and bake in muffin cups . They are super easy and delicious!

Mama Kleve said...

Pumpkin Pie.....who cannot get behind a pumpkin pie...it is one of the best foods ever.

Sally said...

Hi Beki!
My favorite fall treat is probably pumpkin bread. The other day, my DD asked me why we only bake this in the fall. I didn't have an answer for her. Somehow, we forget about it in the spring and summer as different "favorite treats" come into season. As soon as school starts, though, I start thinking about more baking... and pumpkin bread. We love it!

Thanks for the chance to win. Have an awesome day! ~Sally

Lindakaysmith said...

This isn't exactly a treat for eating but a treat for the nose... :) I take orange peels, cinnamon, and cloves and pop them into a pot of water and put on the back of my stove for a slow simmer... Makes my home smell amazing! My kids know when they smell it that Fall has arrived! :)

Emily Ruth said...

Hmm...just one favorite fall treat? Well, it would have to be French apple pie. Not a double-crusted apple pie, but one with a brown sugar/cinnamon/butter mix on top instead of a crust.
Amazing deliciousness.
