Perfect Caramel Apples

Looking for the perfect Caramel Apple recipe? You’ve come to the right place. The ultimate dipping caramel ready in 15 minutes or less. This iconic sweet treat is a must this season!

Perfect Caramel Apples

Caramel Apples at last. Getting to the point of holding a perfect caramel apple in my hand was quite the ordeal. Batch number 1 involved burned caramel (always use a thermometer) and standing on my chair whilst waving a towel at my smoke detector. Our kitties were less than amused and neither was I.

The second batch decided to turn into a grainy mess and started to slip right off of my apples. Frustration levels were high. Very high.

Perfect Caramel Apples

I never got around to making caramel apples last year and as I was at the brink of giving up, I took another glance at my list of things to make. I couldn’t bear to see caramel apples still on said list waiting to be made the following year. It simply had to happen NOW.

I finally decided to ditch the new, fast, and so-called “easy” caramel recipes I had been playing with and went the traditional route. And guess what? Batch number 3 was what I call perfection. And even though it might seem a bit more involved than other recipes out there, it actually was quite simple, easy, and fairly quick. Who would have thought?

Gorgeous Caramel Apples were so worth 3 attempts! [Read more…]

Glazed Pumpkin Scones

Buttery, soft, and ultra fall-like Scones. Perfect for your afternoon cup of tea or coffee on a brisk day.

Glazed Pumpkin Scones

It had been way too long since my last scone recipe. Upon realizing that scones haven’t been made since moving into our new house earlier this year, I immediately felt the need to get in the kitchen and steep a cup of hot tea as well. Even though I do not look forward to the colder days ahead, I can’t deny the fact that hot tea and a freshly baked treat taste better on slightly cool and comfy afternoons.

Glazed Pumpkin Scones

I don’t think that pumpkin scones come at any surprise. I mean, have you been reading this blog over the last couple of years? Specifically at this time of year?

That’s right. Pumpkin everything. Not only do the scones and the glaze contain real pumpkin puree, but I also couldn’t help but to break out my pumpkin and leaf cookie cutters. I am fully committed this year. FULLY. [Read more…]

Autumn’s Delight Chocolate Dipped Profiteroles

Profiteroles dunked in Chocolate and filled with classic fall flavors –  Sweetened Apples, Salted Caramel Sauce and a Homemade Whipped Cream Filling.

Autumn's Delight Chocolate Dipped Profiteroles

In order to keep the title somewhat manageable and short, I decided to go with Autumn’s delight as part of the name for this recipe. I think most people would agree that apples and caramel are fall’s most iconic combo.

And because apples never tasted as good as they do right now, they are definitely starring in today’s post. Nestled on top of a sweet whipped cream filling and drizzled with made from scratch salted caramel sauce, they are responsible for making all of the other components sing. La-la-la-la-la!

All this wonderfulness hides inside profiteroles or more commonly known as cream puffs. 

Light and delicate pastries that I never thought I could pull off. If you’re anything like me, I am here to tell you that there is nothing to worry about. EVRYONE will be able to master these.

Seriously. [Read more…]

Hey all! Happy Friday!

Alright, I should have pronounced this week pumpkin week from the start. But just in case you were looking for a non-pumpkin treat today, this recipe can be made two ways.

It is the perfect way to celebrate Friday and is sure to please everyone. Especially those that have a sweet tooth and are looking for something to savor all weekend long ;).

Also, if you’re into Heath bars or homemade candy in general, you’re welcome.

Because this recipe whips up in no time and is easy as can be, it has become one of my favorite things to make. It never ceases to surprise me how easy it is to make something so delicious and utterly scrumptious.

Because of this food blog, I have gained so much knowledge on how to make some of my favorite treats. It’s a terrible thing, and by terrible I mean absolutely wonderful! [Read more…]

Happy Friday, friends. I am so excited Friday is finally here. Not just because it’s the end of the work week and the weekend begins, but I finally get to share these brownies with you.

It’s not like I had to wait an eternity to get around to blog these, but when you’re not the most patient person in the world, 5 days feels like forever. I know I could have switched things, but brownies and Fridays just go together.

It all started when I tried Hershey’s pumpkin spice kisses a couple of weeks ago. I don’t know why, but I had never had them before. Which was a total surprise to me. Since I love anything pumpkin spiced and have pretty much tried everything available, I had not idea how the kisses escaped me.

All I knew was that I needed to make a recipe that called for them and preferably didn’t use the whole bag ;). I needed to have a couple leftover to keep myself occupied while waiting for the brownies to cool and set. [Read more…]
