Scrumptious Chocolate Muffins chock-full of Caramel and tart Apples. Finished with a delectable Chocolate Crumb Topping. Yassss!
Welcome back, everyone. Are you ready for the first fall weekend of the year? Do you have anything fun planned?
Adam and I were planning on hitting the trails at a State Park in northern Minnesota this weekend to take in the fall foliage, but it looks like we’ll be waiting another week or so. Because the weather through all of September has been absolutely beautiful here. Warm, sunny and picture-perfect, really. One wouldn’t even know fall has officially arrived by walking outside. I can’t remember leaving the house in a t-shirt and shorts this late in September since like forever. While we’re anxiously awaiting the fall colors to arrive, I am more than happy to spend yet another weekend soaking in the sun and pretending that summer is never going to end.
Yes, I adore all things summer, but that doesn’t mean that I am not craving the best fall has to offer. Pumpkin spice lattes (Dunkin Donuts’ are the bomb), fall-scented candles, layering clothes and wearing boots, fresh apples and pumpkins… I could go on and on. Oh, and don’t forget about the food. Comforting, hearty, warm and oh so satisfying.
To be honest, I’ve been dreaming of the amazing food creations for months now. The muffins you see here were swirling around my head for so long – I’m BEYOND pumped to finally get to share them with you today! [Read more…]
